Sore throat...

This morning I took my medication to my surgery,I feel like I have sore throat .No fever no cough. I just call them and let them know they told me we need to make sure it's not strep throat .
Any advice?? I have a lot of pressure on me because of this surgery and maybe my stress level make me feel this way I don't know. :(

Hey! The days leading up to the surgery are very stressful and can really take a toll on your body and how you feel. My throat also got a little scratchy a day before my procedure. So I just took extra vitamin C and tried to relax a little. It ended up being nothing. I hope all goes well for you :) happy healing!!

I'm glad everything went well. Definitely take it easy and rest. You're definitely going to be swollen, but 1200ccs of fat is a good amount. Waiting to actually see the results is the hard part lol. I'm 10 days out, and I'm so swollen. It's hard waiting for the swelling to down and to see how I really look! Keep us updated :)

You probably could if ps says its ok. I have read a lot of people also do ultrasound massage right away. It could help healing and keep things smooth.

Thank you!! You make me feel very good;) . I hope swelling just go away,i am very active on my work, it's makes me slow down.No he didn't say anything about massage. Should I start ?
  • Reply
You look really smooth for so soon PO, and hardly no brusing.wow! I itched for 2-3 mos after flank lipo. I think your gonna look great once it settles. Its true the swell seems to take months to go away. Has ps said to start massage yet?

Should I hear Faja ?

Hi ladies,I have a quick question if you can help;)
My garment got loose or big some how and really hurts my sides.garment has the hooks on both side.faja has on front so should I change?

2 Comments

I had my side too.my faja doesn't. Have hooks on sides,it's on front.front is real comfortable But kind of tight on my waist.foam is a good idea. Thank you dear ;)
  • Reply
Did you have the side lipod or just tummy and back? Looks like you could use the one with no hooks on sides. If it starts to feel loose you can put some foam sheet in between. I used half a pool noodle because my pants were cutting in too much and making me get an indent.

You really do look good. I think your change from before to now is good. I dont see the little pooch at all. How is it when you bend like in your first before pics. Thats where I am seeing a big difference on your afters. Thats the area I want to do to even me out with my flanks.

I can definately see a change. You look much better! Sorry you are not happy. Maybe you don't notice as much of the change cause you look at yourself everyday. I heard that bloating can last a while. Keep positive!

Daro its interesting that you said you are not totally happy with your result. I'm in the same boat. I'm trying to stay positive when I still feel a bit chubby in the flanks and lower abdomen. I even work out about 4-5 days a week. But I still have to say that you still look fabulous whether you lose more or not.
