Had Cool Sculpting on Lower Abd 7 Days Ago - San Francisco, CA

I had Cool Sculpting 7 days ago on lower abdomen...

I had Cool Sculpting 7 days ago on lower abdomen and am in the WORST pain, it seems like each day that goes by I'm in more pain. I feel stabbing and sharp shooting pains, I have tried ice and it made it WORSE. The pain is so bad I have a hard time sleeping at night and have to sleep on my back. Has anyone else experienced this HORRIBLE pain and what can I do to make this go away????


I had Coolsculpting 1 month ago on lower abdomen. No real noticeable pain after, just numbness. Some prickling feeling for awhile but no actual pain. My rib cage hurt ( I have a large rib cage) during the process cause the machine was resting there and it was a little sore after. I did my upper abdomen one week later and I could not wait until the first few minutes were up and I was numb, as it hurt so bad. That was painful. Afterwards, my stomach felt like it had been punched repeatedly and was sore for over 2 weeks to the touch. However, it wasn't unbearable and I did not take pain meds either time. My tight waist pants bothered it somewhat. My flanks were done 5 days later and are still a little numb, but that was the easiest process just a pinching at the bottom of the machine on each side. Not noticing too much improvement. I'm 5 ft. 5 in and weigh 125.

I use biofreeze and ibuprofen and was okay to sleep. Days 5-10 are the worst of it. By day 11 you should be passed the worst.

I had Cool Scultping 14 days ago

Maaaaan what a difference 7 days makes, last week I posted about my HORRIBLE pain after 7 days and I am happy to say that it's day 14 and I feel a MILLION times better, I am also starting to see results after two weeks. When I was reading other reviews and the complained about pain BUT would do it again I thought "These women MUST be CRAZY!!!!" LOL now that my pain is gone I have joined the crazy boat and will be doing my love handles in two weeks. Some of the things that helped me get through the pain was ice and I went to Walgreens and purchased Cool aloe burn gel w/Lidocaine and kept that on 24/7 with spanks and it was MAGIC lol. Something else that I was told to try was Lyrica (must be prescribed) which is a nerve medication but with the Cool Aloe I didn't need it. Here is a pic from day 1 to yesterday day 13


I was told not to take ibuprofen that it would alter the effects.

That's just silly!
No, it's not silly because my Doctor's office told me the same thing . No Ibuprofen for 24 -48 hours after procedure.
