Feel really bad after fat transfer/lipo from flanks to butt

Its now allmost 3 days since my surgery and i feel terrible. Nausea, dissyness and i cant get anything else than bananas and grapes down without puking. Im also going to the bathroom the entire time. Everything i eat just gets right out again. I feel weak and i cant sleep more than an hour here and there. I went to see my surgeon and doctor, but they said they couldnt do much about it. The wounds look fine and crp is 25. No fever. What is happening to me? Am i gonna die? I feel so bad.

Feeling bad after surgery

You are certainly not the first person to feel terrible after having surgery. I'm guessing your procedure was done using general anesthesia. There are a multitude of reasons people can feel bad after having surgery with Jennifer Anastasia. Then a statics can cause persistent nausea and vomiting, medications like anabiotic's can give side effects like diarrhea, blood loss makes people feel weak, the entire process is often an emotional roller coaster full of anxiety and at times regret. 99.9% of the time time it makes everything better and intervention is not needed. Still, patients who are having nausea and vomiting after surgery should be given antinausea medications when indicated. Medications like Zofran are very effective. For patients who have uncontrolled nausea and vomiting it to drug regiment it sometimes needed. If your diarrhea is severe than your antibiotics should be addressed if you're taking them. Patients who have difficulties after surgery I usually turn the corner on the third date at which point there is a reassurance because each day becomes more tolerable. Please stay in contact with your plastic surgeon. Best, Mats Hagström, MD
