Day 1: I am 31 years old, 5"6 139 pounds. My doctor decided to used the large applicator on my stomach.I didn't have any upper belly fat so they used the applicator in the middle right over my belly button. When she put he vacuum on my stomach it sucked up everything and took my breath away. It hurt for about 10 minutes. It felt like a contraction when in labor. It was bearable but not comfortable. I think that the belly button area is more sensitive anyway. So when I had that much pain I new this experience would not be 100% pain free. Once the 10 minutes was up I just felt pressure from the vacuum. When the 60 minutes was over they massaged my stomach out. This didn't hurt at all. Then I put on a spanx and went to the grocery store. I was a little sore but not in pain.
Day 2: Felt fine today, it felt like a part of my stomach was numb and dead to my body. I wore the spanx all day and night. It is less sensitive with it on and I think it helps.
Day 3: Sore today with some dull and sharp pains that come and go around my belly button. Nothing unbearable but it feels better to lay down. This was a Sunday so I just went to bed early. Still wear spanx it helps make it not so sensitive, just take it off to bath and wash it!
Day 4: I am a Teacher and I was able to go to work. Still have on the spanx, still have some dull and sharp pains but they come and go. The inside of my belly button is red where it hurts.
Day 5: Pain is a little worse today but is comes and goes so I am at work today. Haven't even thought about missing it. I am swollen and still wearing a spanx. I am taking 3 Motrin 800 a day and it helps. I really hope this works. Every time I have a pain I just think about a fat cell dying. I will continue to update.
Day 6 is bad the pain is worse. I got my Doctor to...

Day 7 the constant pain started around 4:00 PM. I called my Doctor and she gave me Neurontin for the pain. I hope it gets better tomorrow. It is a burning/stabbing pain.
