Had Cellulaze -Toms River, NJ
Just had Cellulaze done 5 days ago. Let me start...
Let me start by saying I had Dr. Godek in Toms River and Both the Doctor and his staff were incredible.
The walked me through every single step of the process weeks ahead of the procedure.
I was put under for the Procedure which meant I was in complete Lala land from beginning to end.
I was told to take a multi vitamin and vitamin c the week before my procedure.
I had my inner thighs, front of my legs and my knees done. Believe it or not I barely have any cellulite behind my legs. Mine is all on the front of my legs.
I went in the afternoon, the anesthesiologist asked me some questions and they hooked me up to an IV and that was it. I woke up 3 hours later with the most incredible nurses asking me if I was hungry.
I felt no pain but my bladder felt as if I was going to explode. I tried to go to the bathroom but couldn't so they had to put a catheter in me. I was sent home with it. I still felt no pain. Just a little sore. I took the pain meds the doctor gave me. I hung out with my husband and watched television the rest of the day. Went to bed that night and slept fine all night. The only uncomfortableness I felt was the catheter. I woke up in the morning and felt very irritated but again it was because of the bag hooked up to me. Only felt a little soreness on my legs. Took one more pain killer (in total I took 2 in the two days) went to the doctor and the nurse took the catheter out. Doctor came in and said my legs looked good so far and changed me to as smaller garment which I was to change into in 2 days. I Had very little drainage, doctor told me if I had any more to just put some gauze. But so far I haven't. I felt so good that after we left Doctor's office we dropped by the outlets to do some Christmas shopping. We got home that night and I felt like I had to go to the bathroom badly. (might of overdone it with the junk that Im not used to eating). Sat on the toilet and couldn't go. Was getting terrible gas pains. Never even felt that much pain with delivering two kids. I sent my husband to cvs to get me an enema. Now you know I was desperate. Took fiber pills too. Nothing helped. My head was starting to spin. So I went to the emergency room. The gave me a water enema and within 15 minutes I was ok. They told me the narcotics the Dr. gave me for my legs caused the constipation.
I put on my smaller garment size medium today. Felt fine.
So 6 days later all I have taken was 2 tylenol. My legs are sore but not that bad were I have to take anything.
I have a really busy weekend between work and running around. Im being careful not to do too much so Im not constantly walking around but Im not just laying around on the couch either.
My legs look bruised and swollen but I expected it. I go this tuesday for a follow up so we shall see. So far all I see is the swelling.
I will keep you updated!!I started taking bromine, and arnica pellets. Also taking an antibiotic. I do feel some stretching in the skin but nothing painful.
Will update everyone this week!!
Not as painful as I thought
I went to the doctor for my one week visit and he said I still have a lot of swelling but to expect it for the next 3 weeks. I have to admit I haven't needed pain killers. Definitely sore if I sit for more than 20 minutes and now I know what everyone is talking about when they say the nerve pain comes and goes. But so far I'm great! Will post pictures soon
