Hi there everyone, Just had my arms done...
- 31 Aug 2012
Hi there everyone,
Just had my arms done today. Couldnt sleep well last night. My mind was filled with lots of questions - will it be painful? will i be able to carry stuff and more..Will i be able to go to work on Day 3 after the surgery. (i have no choice!) My family are not here with me as they're in another country that is very far from me and my boyfriend is out of town for work). he mixed feelings i had has been bugging me since the day i booked my appointment for VASER.
So this mornin i arrived just in time despite the heavy rain and heavy traffic. The reception staff went through all the medications that i need to take after the procedure. Payment was made too before we proceed to the consultation room.
Different angles of my arms was being photographed and painkiller was taken before my doctor came in and made some 'picasso drawings' on my fatty arms.
Then i was being lead to the surgery hall where all the big equipments, not forgetting the big table were ull b lying on, are in front of eyes. I was nervous and keep telling the nurse to put me to sleep. (my pain threshold is very low)
Before i got up to the surgery table, the nurse applied iodine all over my arms area, front n back. The nurses are very nice and understanding, i was so cold (coz i was asked to strip naked n given a disposable bra and panty to wear), they covered me with blankets underneath the surgery paper (green in colour)
THEN the painful part came in, the doctor tryin to find my find my veins on d back of my hands. According to him, my veins are sunken in and difficult to find. So, i had to take d pain of d needles goin into my skin for the second time. Dont worry ppl, it wasnt as painful as i expected. I'd give it a 4/10.
Before i knew it, i was already in la-la land, feeling nothin at all. Doctor choose to give me sedation so that i will be sleeping during the whole procedure. The moment i got up i find myself in another room with dimmed lights, nurses was monitoring my condition from time to time. ( one of my toe was actually clipped n that wire is connection to a machine, Think its like a pulse detection kinda thing.)
I went back to sleep again as i still feel drowsy. After two hours of rest, i was waken up by d nurse and was informed that my friend has arrived to pick me up. (Prior the surgery, the staff will ask for contact number of the person who will be responsible to send me home.) U may wonder why, it is because after VASER, u will feel drowsy and it is very dangerous to drive, and take d public transport by ur own.
U might be wondering how was i feeling when i woke up? i DID NOT feel any pain at all except for a little soreness here n there especially the incisions area. I'd give it 3/10. Perhaps the anaesthesia havent worn off yet i thought. But hey, look at me..it has been 5 hours after i woke up and im typing away telling u guys bout my experience at home. ( i read some review that they cant even type properly for few days after VASER..which was kinda scary).
Anyway, I just took my medications after my light dinner which was instructed by the nurse earlier. ( painkillers, reduce swelling and bruises supplements), and now im waiting for the medication to kick in, as it is supposed to cause drowsiness.
So yeah...thats my experience on d 1st day. Hopefully ill be fine tmrw so i can update u guys on my progress!
