I never backdown on a bet! I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!!! And I hope everyone has a Happy New year! :):):)

So good to hear you are doing good. The 21st I am having revision on left hip have a large bulge there so hopefully I'll look more even. Good luck with the bet.

Just peachy Nichole36974. :(. I'll be PO day 17 tomorrow and still have 1 drain. BUT, it's only doing 25cc a day! PLUS part of my incision between my right thigh & stomach hurts when I walk!!! Like its PULLING skin tight!!!! There's still tape over my whole incision! I messages my Dr.'s coordinator today but never heard back. She always responds back. But NOT today! Because when I call, they transfer me to her and I usually get voicemail. So, I'm fixing to message her again and in morning! I can't walk straight due to that part burning and feels like its gonna pull apart! Idk if there's stitches in there that Doc takes out or if they r dissolvable ones. Because if its where she can take some out to ease the pulling.... GO FOR IT!!! I just wanna be drain free and Normal again! I wanna get out of this CG and into smooth Spanx! :). (Sorry for venting.... Just tired of hurting with this drain and now scar!)

We all need to vent. We put our bodies through a lot. My right side drain was always more irritated too. It had already started to scab over a bit when the nurse took it out. That side hurt a bit more coming out. I didn't have any lipo so I never drained much except on the first day. Luckily my PS let me get them out on day 4 if I promised to take it easy for the next couple of days. I didn't want to have to go in and get a seroma drained. You will probably have wonderful results even if you are uncomfortable now. I hope you get them out soon and are feeling better for the weekend.

Thanks Nichole36974! :). I just got a reply from PS office. That the part of scar that's hurting between my thigh and stomach is normal. So I guess I'll continue to limp while walking. Lol! And as for drain, I told them it was 25 all day Tues & Wed. And less than 5 right now. I asked if I can get if out later this afternoon or tomorrow? It's a 2 hr drive but that'll be worth it! Plus I found I still have stitches on the left upper side of my butt! Lord I was hoping those were dissolvable! LOL!!!!' :):):). Well, have a Good Day! :):):)

Praise The Lord, WOOHOO!!!! I'm Drain FREE!!!!! I can go to a spanx or whatever's comfortable! :). I can go swimming next weekend (not this one!) ONLY bad thing is... When I was leaving to go to Shreveport for my visit... As I was backing out in my new camero... A UPS truck was backing into our driveway and SMASH!!!! :( messed up the back of my new car! Then a murder/suicide happened in my neighborhood while cop was at my house! A couple in their 60's. SO SAD!!!!! :(. So it's been a Roller coaster day for me!

Noodles86... Thanks for asking. Sore, badly bruised, tired! :) 1st post op appt is tomorrow 2 hrs away from where I Live. Lower back kills me! Other than that, I'm doing good! Lol! Thankful for My Husband, My Daughter & 2 of my Sons help since I've had surgery! :):)) LOVE not doing laundry, dishes, cooking and the cleaning! :):):). I'm post op Day 7 today! :) went for my 1st car ride yesterday.. My Husband went Saturday & bought me a new black camero! Now... I'm thankful for him & his LOVELY thought & gift... BUT.. We'd just discussed the DAY before my surgery... For him to get him a new truck 1st (his is 2 yrs old.. BUT, he uses it for his company so it has lots of miles on it)...& then in 2 yrs will trade in my 2008 Cadillac CTS for a new CTS. Mine is a 5 yrs old BUT I LUV it & I'm happy and content with it 100%!!!! He said his Hot Wife needed a hot Car! Bahahahahaha! Please don't think I sound ungrateful!!! I just prefer to keep my 2008 CTS! :):): How are you doing Noodles 86? How do you feel? (Sorry about the book I just wrote!)

Noodles86, my PS had me wrapped in a padding & then Compression garment over it. (Sides and back) And numbed me with that new stuff instead of sending me home with a pain pump. So, right after recovery I was laying on my sides. Switching often due to still being uncomfortable. :( You don't have long for your BIG Day!!! :). I know you are so excited! :):):)

I remember the pod 7 back pain. It will get better. I'm pod 14 and my back feels much better now. You've come a long way baby. Oh yeah, if you really really don't want the Camaro...I'll take it. Lol! I saw the new ones and they are bad ass. Definately take the caddy for the po visit. No smoother ride than a caddy. :) happy healing!

Thanks June TT for Me ! :). Just wish I would've gotten both drains out! I don't think it'll be much longer tho. The one she left in has only done about 10 ml all Day! Just gotta stay that way for 3 days! :):):)

Saw your comment about the pain meds. Please take your pain meds. I took mine every 4 to 5 hrs for the first 5 1/2 days. I didn't have the bbl so no idea how painful that is. Don't suffer that's what they are for. Don't know how you managed to sleep on your side are you putting a pillow behind you to hold you on your side at an angle. I hope you feel better soon. Day by day. Everyday gets a little better but you gotta take those pain pills.

June TT for me...My PS put a thick pad under my binder on my sides and back.... I was on my side sleeping day 1 without a pillow behind me. Plus I have to stay off of my butt as much as possible. My butt doesn't hurt tho.... It burns sometimes... It's my lower back that kills me! :(. Yea.... My BF had beltectomy last year. She, my Husband, & all my kids said to stay on the pills for 5-7 days at least. That.... That is why PS gave then to me was for pain . (And not to sit here and suffer & cry hurting).....I'm VERY stubborn & hard headed! BUT... I will be taking my 2nd pain pill for today in a minute!

I'm three weeks as well, had stitches in my butt I didn't even know about for several days because of lipo.. Ouch, bet its a little uncomfortable to sit that for days was the only position I was comfortable in.. Bless your heart,, you'll be better in no time!!

I didn't know she lipoed my back. Which I'm glad she did! Cute Grandma..... When did u start walking straight? It KILLS my lower back! ;(

Wmnurse, I'm just now according to my daughter walking straight, it doesn't feel like it though, by the end of some days I'm so sore still, don't think I could walk straight for anything, my lower back stopped bothering me last week.. Your doing great! Hang in there & I've found it's good to complain to us when ever you feel like it, I've had three times in 3 weeks where I cried & felt sorry for myself!!!
