23 Jan 2014
Day of treatment
I'm in soooooooo much pain. I actually cried to my bf and told him I regret it so much. But now I'm under heavy meds so it feels like a very painful period. And gosh I'm super swollen cuz I feel it and I had my bf. take a pic and I look bigger than how I started. In draining fluids and blood which is so gross. But part of it.
It's been five days..
I been walking around and sleeping on my stomach. As directed by the doc. But I feel as it I'm getting more swollen. Tomorrow I see my doc so I'll ask. Also I'm constipated, I know it's an effect of all the meds but ugh it sucks. And the sleep on my stomach is killing me :(. I ordered a pillow cuz ill kill my neck. I'm planing on not sitting for 6 weeks. I hope I can do it. I mean I had to get into a cab today and lay side
Ways cause I don't want to mess this up!! I really like the way I look. When I don't
Have the garment off but I know I still have a long way to
Went to the doc for follow up it's been 6 days
He took my stitches off and told me I was healing very nicely. Now it's time for massages. I'm going to start scheduling them for next week. I hear that those are super painful. Also I was surprised he said he took a lot of fat out. I mean I weight normally 130 pounds and I didn't think I had so much, I was fit and healthy. He explained to me that i will be swelling more and less and more again during this healing process. I see him in two weeks. I'm done taking pain meds as Vicodin doesn't do much and I can tolerate the pain. My biggest concern is sleeping on my stomach, my arms get the worst of it, they are always sore. If your going to do this procedure I recommend a lot of pillows and someone there to help you. My bf stayed home for this week and honestly I wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for his help cuz I'm a big baby !!
No pain !
So i have no pain what so ever unless you poke me hard :( but no pain moving walking. I'm in a medical setting so I'm expected to be up for more than 10 hrs. The last two days I've been practicing staying on my feet. I haven't been tired and when when I go sleep on my stomach it doesn't bother me at all cuz by then I just want to sleep and I don't wake up anymore at night. So I feel it's going great. I ordered an xs Marena comfort wear garment. Mine is starting to feel loose. The only thing is, (I've read and researched this and it seems normal. ) and I want girls who've had a bbl maybe to give me their feedback because my buttocks are hard I know this is the waiting period (fat necrosis ) but I'm wondering when does it go back to normal. I mean if my body rejects the butt fat it would suck but I'm not gonna go cry to the surgeon I know this is a 50/50 chance that we take once we transfer fat. Any ways everything else is great.
My first after lipo massage was painful in certain areas. The areas where it was hurting I had extra liquid. Then after she used her hands she used a machine that suctions your skin that was painful too. My instructions are now to drink a lot of water so everything can pass through. Also she recommended using vitamin E capsules on the area. She told me I might only need 2 sessions so I'm going to my next session next week.
Developed an infection
Just my luck ! I ordered a smaller compression garment. And I've been wearing it with panty liners and now I have what looks and feels like a yeast infection. (Based on past experience and google). The garment is pretty tight so it's only to be expected. I'm taking monistat until Monday when I can see a doctor. And I will be either asking my doctor for pills to prevent yeast infections or loading myself up with cranberry juice cuz I really hate this :((((( By the way I feel awesome after the massage!!
So I've been using the Marena compression garment x small. And it's loose I've had it for 5 days. I'm looking to see if anybody can recommend a better garment? My waist size went from a 30 to a 27 in the last few weeks and I really want my lower abdomen to stay the way it is.
