Thanks for the support everyone.. Ok here is the low down of my surgery. First i'm glad i made it out in one piece.  I was giving an anxiety pill, another pill to prevent excessive bruising and the doctor shot me with demerol.  I was feeling a little woosy than i was giving the local anthesia in theareas in the stomach and underneath my breast.  When I became numb the doctor starting scrapping the fat i had my eyes close thru it all i peeked once in a while but when i seen the tools he was using i couldnt watch.  After all the scrapping and using the laser i started feeling everything he was doing.  They say you not suppose to feel "Pain" Well i did, It was the most uncomfortable feeling i had in my life.  After a fews hours went by ( my surgery took close to 5 hours) The doctor gave me another shot of demerol. After he was done he had me stand to make sure everything was even and there wasnt anymore fat, so he went back in started scrapping more fat out.  I was in so much pain and sore i wouldnt wish the pain im in on anyone. 

Two days after my surgery im still sore and its hard for me to sit up and manuever around in bed.  Oh, i failed to mention you do have ALOT of drainage, which stopped in 24 hours.  I can say im in pain i'm taking the tylenol to stop the pain.

For now im very swollen, and sore. I do see difference in my stomach but it may still need some time to heal. Also, make sure you wear your compression garment, it help contour the area.  I will post after pics soon to come

Its 12 days after my surgery and i have not seen any results.  So far my stomach is hard and swollen.  The doctor told me this is normal and my stomach will get more  harder for the next 2 to 3 weeks.  Than afterwards my stomach will go down. I'm just dissapointed and i feel more bigger than before, i know all this takes time, i thought i would see some type of change but i havent.  I look pregnant and i'm sad and upset that i spent all this money and nothing is happening.
