Day 1 post surgery. I had physio this morning and got to take off the garment and sponge and wow, results are amazing. Those stubborn love handle and belly fat seem to have all gone. It was not sore, just numb. Oh, getting the garment and sponge on is A Job. The sponge/ foam does help but hey I look like a sumo wrestler, and my physio recommends I wear it for 10 days, 10 DAYS. How do I go to clients looking like a sumo wrestler, I wonder. I must say my butt really look nice and round, I guess the love handles were overpowering my poor butt. Now I can't wait to get back to gym and tone up and finally get my 6 pack back! For now, working on healing and getting back out there. Thanks for all the well wishes. Tomorrow is my second physio session...and I believe day 3 is ouch, so we shall see. Psyching myself up!

Day 4, Mon 21 Nov: Physio was OUUUUUCH. I tried all my pain coping mechanisms...closing ears, singing,humming, breathing, holding my breath, and NOTHING worked, it was just too sore. My physio took the drain out too and did some manual drainage. Ohhh, it was a killer. She is really good, I must say. After the session, the pain was gone. Amazing....

I can't believe its been 8 weeks post the procedure. I'm weaning myself of the sponge. I started exercising in December already and since I couldn't run due to knee injuries, started with walking. I'm glad to say with osteopath and biokinetics treatements, I was able to do a 10 km jog last week. I really pushed myself but was running slowly as advised by my Osteopath and my knees seems to be holding up. I wear my sponge when I run cause its just comforting. I'm loving my tiny waist and flat tummy. My butt seem a bit on the bigger side now, I guess now that love handles are gone and the waist is smaller its more visible. So I'm working on reducing the centimeters cause fitting into clothes is proving rather challenging with a tiny waist and sizeable bum. Other than that, I think I need to go back and see the Doc cause they seem to have stitched my belly button rather funny and I'm not happy with how it looks now. I'm sure he can sort that out. And maybe just see if we can get the butt a bit balanced too, we'll see. Looking forward to 12 weeks to see how the results look....I've tried posting pics, but it takes forever to download, so I'll try some other time.

It's been a while since I've been on the blog. Its almost 6 months post vaser and there are still lumps on my tummy and the Dr tells me thats still fluid. I have been working hard at gym ,swimming and watching what I eat and eventually managed to shed some weight so now the bum is looking balanced. I managed to get an appointment with the Dr after screaming and complaints as they don't seem to do very well with after op care. He examined the belly button which i had issues with and took some pics too. About pics, I got my before pics and Lord did I have rolls. If it wasn't for the tattoos, I'd have said that was not me. Now I really can appreciate the difference. He did say realistically in about a year the finer results would be apparent, shall wait and see. In the meantime I have taken a new lease on life with regard to healthy eating and exercise because I cannot afford to get a big bum, he quoted me about R20k inclusive, which I think is way too much. I shall just appreciate my Africanness with my well endowed behinds and work on keeping it firm.

Take good care everyone!
