minimal 'sedation' = 1 valium, they started the injections in my face minutes after i swallowed the pill - no it hadn't even begun to work. they promised more 'sedation' but never gave it despite my numerous requests. my hands were shaking from the 'ephedra' or whatever in the shots going into my face - yes, they stung and burned.
the sights, sounds, and smells (burning flesh) are very disturbing.
after all that (almost 3 hours, not 1 hour), they give you your AFTER CARE INSTURCTIONS - who knew!!! a whole list of do's and don'ts. ice packs, wrapping your head in ace bandages for a month and so on.
I developed severe swelling and the stitches cut off circulation in my neck and caused cellulitis..... that was pretty.
they told me repeatedly on the phone 'swelling was normal', when I went in to get the stictches removed, the doctor freaked out and removed the stitches himself (normally a 'tech' does that).
I could go on, and on, but the bottom line was a lot of misery, poor treatment and follow up care, and NO NOTICEABLE RESULTS!
