The pain was horrific - Don't Do It! - Louisville, KY

I don't know where to start! The pain was horrific...

I don't know where to start! The pain was horrific. I had 3 treatments. My first one I was given the injections with NO cold air for numbing or anything. YES the shots hurt. The medicine burns as well and immediately I started swelling. I was so sore, bruised and swollen I missed 2 days of work and was down for the weekend. Each time it was terrible. Here's the kicker: I've never had kids, I weighed 127 pounds when I went in. All I wanted to do was tighten up my stomach and get rid of what fat was there. When I went in for my 2nd treatment I was weighing 134!! I GAINED 7 pounds. So the dr tells me its just all swelling and it will go away. NOT true. I finished my 3 treatments. The last one was in December 07. This is April 08 and I am still bigger now than when I started this on Sept 11, 2007.

This a has been a terrible experience, costly, painful and even a bigger blow to my self esteem. Feel free to email me at {click on username to reach private message form} I have pics to prove my story. You will be shocked. I do not have any photos right now of the before that I can find I will keep looking.

Months and months after my 3rd treatment, I am...

Months and months after my 3rd treatment, I am very unhappy. I'm lumpy, swollen, my clothes I wore last summer at this time do not fit. I'm disappointed. I do not want anyone to go through with lipo dissolve. It's NOT worth taking the risk. I was told by my doctor I probably wouldn't get enough of a result to make me happy but I'd see some difference.

The difference: I'm bigger,  lopsided, bloated, and lumpy. I will not wear a bathing suit. I wear special under garments to keep me in a decent form.

I still have not lost the weight I gained after the first treatment. I even under went a 12 week intense exercise/diet program with a trainer. Even after all that hard work, NOTHING changed in my stomach.

My doctor assured me after I went for yet another follow up, that what was injected into me was all natural and nothing that would harm me. I hope and pray he was at the least telling me the truth about that part of this ordeal.
