I would call your doctor and let them know. Take your temp. If its more than 100 def call. But you should not be sick and hurting so bad. Maybe it's the meds...and you need some nausea med to add to it. Feel better and drink water or pedialite

Omg sorry your in pain:/ I have a high pain tolerance..my lipo doctor was like wtf?? Your the 1st patient #1 wide awake (didnt take pain pills, anti stress nor nausea meds which knock you out) #2 never once complained when it hurt (suctioning the upper abs hurt!!!!!) but for a few seconds. I never had nausea either and knew I wouldn't have it so I was like..im not taking all those pills!!! You crazyyyyy lol anyways feel better soon

That's crazy. I was asleep through the procedure. Don't think I would have done it wide awake. You really are strong. I'm sure I will feel less pain later today. Thank you

I had smartlipo on upper/lower abs. Barely sore, never stopped working out. Day after I was already at gym doing ellipical (slow pace for an hour) day3...today I went running. Im pretty swollen so I dont see much results.. So im kinda disappointed thus far ..i wanted to see at least a lil results soon after. But no :/

I don't think you will see much results at day 3. It hasn't been 24 hrs yet. So I am in so much pain and can hardly stand for long. Once I can I will post pictures.

I was told by my dr that if you exercise to early in like sooner than 2 weeks post op that you can mess the healing process up. I was real happy with my results and then I started working out my and and gluts and cardio at 5 weeks post op...I'm now 7 weeks and MAJOR indentations in the lower abs are starting to show up. Not pleased. I also had excess bruising and swelling anytime I would gently work out sooner than a month post op.

Really??? My doctor said no vigorous exercise for 3-5days.. Day #3 I put on 2 compression garnments and went out the door with my running partner. Took a few mins to get used to the "bounce" never had that before lol but it felt like I was carrying 2 water bottles in my belly. Its still same swelling the only thing running did was breakup the bruising along side my old c-section scar and spread it thru out my lower abs. Weird!!!

Ouch, I can't even imagine running in the first 2 weeks. I know salt will make me swell and not drinking enough water. Maybe lay off exercising for a week or so, wear the girdle 24/7 the more the better and see f that helps the swelling.
