Day of treatment
Today is the day I am extremely nervous. I hope all goes well. I am super nervous I could just throw up right now. I am more scared then anything. I hope all goes well. I will be able to update after my surgery and let people know how it went. I am 5 feet 2 inches and weigh about 175. I just had a baby 6 months ago and can't stand my body so this is what I wanted to do to have some improvement
Day 2 post op
I am in no pain just a little sore. I haven't drained a lot like other people say they do so I am worried about that. I am very swollen in the bottom portion of my abdominal area. I slept ok I had to get up and pee several times.
Today is actually Day 2 post op 48 hours after surgery
Last night was very painful. I didn't have my back done but for some reason it was hurting badly. I had to take a Percocet in the middle of the night. I was out and about yesterday and when I got home my tummy was swollen like a balloon. Today I woke up and although swollen it is much flatter. I don't have bruising because I have been taking Arnika pills and bromelane pills. I am trying to go back to work on Sunday. I work and stand all day taking care of patients we will see how that goes.
Day 2 post up
Not in pain just sore. I feel some lumpiness under my skin. And I also feel some numb areas and swollen areas.
Day 8 post up in shock did not get laser lipo like I thought I did
So I went in for my post op. During my consultation I spoke to 2 other ladies not my actual surgeon. When I left I was under the impression I was getting laser lipo which is why I did not go all the way with a tuck in hopes that the laser will tighten my skin. As days went by I started thinking about not remembering the laser part so I asked my surgeon and he said I did not get laser. He said it was tuscement method and I should still see results. He said I have to be patient as the swelling will decrease month by month. And he was surprised that I thought it was laser lipo as advertised on the website. He works there part time. I would have been more angry but he is a great surgeon with great bedside manors and has done work all over the world even reconstructive surgery on poor children in other countries. Anyway he said I looked as I am suppose to look for 8 days post op. My insicions are so tiny you can't see them and I can't wait for time to go by so I can get back in the gym and I am praying for my skin to do what it's suppose to do. I am really swollen especially after 12 hours at work and it hurts only when I bend down or if I have my compression garment off and start moving around. Updated pictures below
3 weeks post op still swollen
So I am swollen again. One day I am flat the next day I am not. I am down 14 pounds from when I got the surgery. Just started the gym yesterday. I am in pain because of the gym maybe I went back too soon. With chlothes on I look 100 percent better than before. I am hoping to keep shrinking and I can't wait for the swelling to go away.
