Just got it done on my lower stomach Feb 15. First review .. Getting the machine put on was EXTREMELY painful. Made me nauseous and sweaty. Won't do it again, but hoping for a good result. Ill update in a week or 2 and add more pics.

It's the third day after procedure. My stomach feels a little sore every once in a while and looks a little puffy but other than that.. I have been fine. No trouble sleeping .. I have read from others that the pain starts 3 days- week after so hopefully not .. Ill keep updating..

It's the 5th day and I woke up with some pains in my stomach. The pains aren't too bad just feel like someone's poking my stomach from the inside and it's tender. I know that sounds weird but that's the best description I could think of to describe it. It's not that bad for now.. If anything gets worse throughout the day, I will post :)

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us!

I'm glad you're not in much pain at the moment, hopefully it will stay that way! Did your doctor mention when you would start seeing results?

I think they said you can see results after about 4-6 weeks .. Hopefully :)

Hey Brittany, I had my lower abdomen done around the same date as you. I have not experienced any real pain just slight tenderness. I am waiting on the results. I have seen so many different before and after photos I hope my results are just as good. Have you started seeing any results?

It's been about a week.. I woke up today with horrible pain. It's bearable, I can still do stuff and kind of ignore the pain is there but it's annoying. It's like sharp pains all over, can't really explain? But hope it goes away soon.
Did your doctor prescribe neurontin (sp?) for you? I took it right when the tingling started and it helped so much that I never felt any real pain. If you didn't get a prescription for it get one it helps so much.

It's a week later and I'm in so much pain it's almost unbearable
I had mine the same day as you, and my pain started Wednesday... I wish I had realized that the first few days were the easiest! This is the first night I haven't been able to sleep :(

Same as yesturday. In so much pain! I took a Percocet that I had left fr getting a tooth pulled.. It only helped a little.. So now I have I've on my stomach. This pain needs to go it sucks so bad ..

^^^been using Ice* ... Pain feels like bad stings in my stomach all over :(
Yea, I feel you... Thursday night and Friday all day I was on the verge of tears almost all day. I'm a teacher and sitting at the table with the kids made it very uncomfortable. Switching into my yoga pants when I got home helped a lot, but I have been popping Advil like it's candy, and icing the area constantly- those are the only things I have found to help at all. I called the office and the girl I talked to had also had it done, and said that this was normal to have a delayed onset of pain. She said hopefully I would be feeling much better by Monday. So, I plan to just laying on the couch all weekend :)

Day 10 .. 4 am.. Can't sleep in unbearable pain it's so bad it's kinda crazy. I was trying to hold off on asking for those pills to help with pain bc I heard the pain stops after a few days but this is bad .. The worst night yet!!! Pain is about a 10 I have to hold my breath when the stinging gets intense .. Which is about every 3-5 seconds.

Pain is still here. I will update probably...

Pain is still here. I will update probably everyday until pain goes away. It hurts so bad. I called the office and they just told me to take Advil and they said the pain will go away in a day or 2. I really hope bc this sucks. :(
If you could have gotten the medicine the day of your procedure I promise you you would not have experienced as much pain as you have. I asked for them the day of my procedure and had them on hand. The very first day I started feeling like my stomach was sunburned I started taking them.. I used ice packs and medicine and I felt discomfort but that is all. I really hate you are hurting but it will pass after a few days . I'm a week ahead of when you had yours and all I have right now is numbness and a little itching and I'm starting to see some results also.

I want to say the pain went from a 10 to an 8. It is definitely still there just not as bad but still bad. Hope it goes away soon my stomach feels worn out.

The pain was not as bad today. .. Still there but tolerable. Yesturday was the worst and hope it stays that way! I uploaded a current photo. No change yet.. Thanks for the support while I was hurting very bad ! I hope we all get the results we want :)
I did really feel much pain the days after my procedure. It was really tolerable for me. Unfortunately, I am not happy with the results as I felt it did nothing for me.

If the pain is no better today I would call and demand they give you something. I don't see how Advil can help when it's your nerves that are hurting at least that's what I was told and is the reason I was given neurontin.

Yea I think honestly the lady didn't seem like a real doctor .. The pain is still there today but Its not as frequent.. Yet I didn't even get out if bed yet so well see :/

I update practically everyday but can't help it now :) the pain is now like a 2-3 still there but going away ! I actually worked out a little today.. Feeling a little better about everything. My stomach does look a little puffy still.. Ill post another pic in about a week.
Glad you are finally turning a corner- me too! I finally slept through the whole night for the first time since Wednesday :)

Thanks I'm glad to hear that. Now we just wait ..

I'm so happy for you and yes I hope that was the worst day for you. Just think of it like this... All that pain was fat cells bursting!

It's been 2 weeks since I got the procedure done. No change in my stomach yet. It's still sore and feels weird to touch, sensitive.
I would be concerned my lady explained there should not be extreme pain that that would be abnormal but im starting to realize that the stomach area posts tend to all experience more pain that those who do their love handles. I would call.

I guess it will be almost 1 month since I got the procedure done in a few days. My stomach doesn't hurt anymore but it still is weird to touch. I haven't really seen any results yet so idk if I should just expect nothing to happen.. I hope I start to see results soon :/
Any results yet?

No. Some mornings I wake up and my stomach looks flat as a board but others nothing, and no weight loss either but I can see my abs better. It's been a little over a month. What about you?

It's been about 2 months and honestly not much of a difference! Wish I could just get my money back
I did not suffer much pain but there were no results. In fact I feel that the my skin in my treated area (abdomen) seems looser than prior to treatment. I feel I just wasted my money.
Reply
Just starting to see them now. Recovery took a little longer than expected- after breaking from my routine for so long, I'm just now getting back to my normal fitness and eating routine. I'll try to remember to post a pic within the next few days!

When did you get the cool sculpting done? I had mine done feb 8 and I still have seen No results and I've changed my diet and work out and I look exactly the same as I did 2 months ago.

Honestly unless your getting 2 or 3 treatments it's not worth the money.
where in Pa did you get the procedure?

I had coolsculpting last July and again in Sep....terrible pain the first time for 13 days, and it is not from fat cells bursting. The procedure does some temporary damage to the nerves in the area. I had initially promising results, and then everything went back to the way it was before the treatment, so I feel it was a waste, and something the NP that did the second session said pissed me off. She said the Zeltique rep told them that it is not 'one and done' as they were first told, and that people do need retreatment....sigh...waste of money. Hope you eventually see some positive results

A year later and what I think

Honestly this is a procedure for a skinny person to get if they need a centimeter taken off .. It took a little tiny speck of fat off me that Is barely noticeable . Too expensive for the lack of result in my opinion. And it hurt like hell.
Thanks so much for updating 1 year post-op. I'm really sorry it didn't work out for you. :( Are you considering any other procedures to address your abdomen now (i.e. lipo)?
Reply
The procedure did not work on me either. I am 5 ft 2, weigh 118 llb when I had coolsculpting down. I worked out intensively for 2 months, watching my diet and now weights 109 lbs. Actually coolsculpting did not help but I feel rather worsen my condition. I still see a small lump on my stomach in the area when the applicator was put on.
Reply
Oh no! :( I'm sorry it didn't work for you either. Did your provider explain why you didn't get results?

Please consider writing a quick review. You can rate the CoolSculpting procedure, which is really helpful for others who are considering it.

Thanks in advance and sorry again that it didn't work for you.
