It's Really Not That Painful - Virginia

The only problem that i have is the draining tubes...

the only problem that i have is the draining tubes it is very uncomfortable and that u can't sleep the way u want to but the pain itself is not that painful to me everybody body is different so u might not feel like i do, i cant get no sleep at night because u have to sleep a current way which is very uncomfortable see it is 4:42am because i cant get no sleep.but other then that i think i'm goin to be very please with the outcome,then again u have this burning sensation in ur stitches that mean it healing,i got my full tt and lipo on march 18th i have to go to the doctor tomorrow hopefully he will remove these drains i have 3 drain and it is very uncomfortable but people had a tt said that it going to feel much better.

i agree...the drains are so frustrating !! once they are removed u feel so much more advanced in ur recovery. the freedom to move more naturally is liberating!!

I felt very similar to you. I had a full tt on 2/28/11. I have been mainly uncomfortable not in much pain. I will agree that the drains are another story. They are painful especially when switching postions. You will feel much better once they are removed.

Hang on because it will get better after the drains are out.   All up hill from here but it just takes time.  

Keep up on the pain meds and rest all you can.
