I just had lypo of the ilia’s, stomach and outer thighs yesterday by Dr. Michael Damen. First off let me say, I am 15-20 lbs. to my goal weight, I work out 3 times a week (kicking and screaming since I don't have the desire to any longer). I slept all afternoon yesterday and last night. The worst so far for me has been the nausea when getting up to use the bathroom. Its morning and I am forcing myself to stand for short periods of time. There is pain; it's like a really really hard work out where your muscles hurt EVERYWHERE. It's doable, I don't want to take the pain meds and haven't since last night. I am going to my follow up in an hour. I ate a piece of toast and had some coffee. I have it in my mind I this is nothing worse than muscle pain and I refuse to succumb to it. I notice standing and walking feels really good so if you can remember that and take little steps to get to this point I think your recover will be faster. Drink plenty of fluids; make yourself stand once an hour if possible. Put mind over matter. My goal is to fit in a pair of jeans I purchased in Australia 5 years ago...This has changed my life in that I never realized how supportive my husband is during this decision and procedure. I think it has brought us closer. I did a lot of research beforehand so I think I was pretty well prepared. We will see what the results are.
1 week out, I am doing ok. Pain is decreasing...
