Really Banking on the Saying "No Pain, No Gain"! - Shelby Twp, MI

I had my consultation and the procedure on the same day to my lower abdomen. At 26, I am really small all over with a small pooch of fat in my lower belly.

After the consult I believed that it would be a peice of cake, boy was I wrong! The procedure itself wasn't bad, a little uncomfortable for the first 5 minutes but no pain. After about 5 days is when the most agonizing feeling ever kicked in. I feel like i'm being stabbed with a knife in random spots all over my stomach. Not once did they mention this side effect. These sharp pain has kept me up for the past two nights. I also have mild bloating and gas.

Today is day 7 and after reading other reviews I cant wait to get to the 11-14th day marker, seems to be when the painful part comes to an end. If this pain is any indication of my progress then I should be happy with my results.

*fingers crossed* I hope to be happy with my results

Will update later with results

That's is great news ! I'm so glad for you! I did it twice and the second time was much more difficult. It has been three weeks on my second round so I'm starting to notice slight changes ... Good Luck ! Let us know your results. Best, Whirlybird

Today is actually day 9 and I am feeling a bit better. The "pins and needles" feeling has let up a bit and the sharp "stabbing" pains has turned into that of menstrual cramps. I finally slept last night. I have been massaging on icy hot on my stomach or rubbing with a cool towel to eliminate the numb feeling. I think it will be all over soon. Thanks whirly.
