30 Y/o, Two Kids & Massive Weight Loss - Boise, ID
My surgeon suggested getting the Fleur De Lis...
Update 3 weeks out today
almost 4 weeks out
I can't take it anymore.
I have had this persistent pressure in my neck, top of my head, forehead and behind my nose since the surgery. I am at my wits end trying to feel normal again. Nobody knows what is wrong nor do they seem to care. My doctor thought maybe it was my neck from hunching over for a long period so he sent me to physical therapy. That didn't help either. He prescribed Valium which I use sparingly because I do not want to become dependent on something to feel normal again. It does seem to either help or make me not care for a few hours. Whenever I try to do more than ten minutes of cardio the room spins and I feel like I'm going to faint. This all started right after surgery so it has to be linked somehow. I've had a holter monitor and an echocardiogram which came back fine.
My quality of life has greatly diminished and I'm on the verge of giving up. I hate feeling like this. I hate feeling hopeless. I just want this to end.
I remember the operation room being extremely cold and I woke up shivering badly.
My binder was on so tight I think it cut my circulation off. I went home about an hour or so after I woke up. I stood up to go to the bathroom and my temperature dropped to 94 degrees. I thought I was for sure going to hit the floor.
I don't know what to do or think. I wish I had never gotten this surgery done feeling the way I do now.
I couldn't find much information about her online, so I hope this helps people in the Boise area. She takes her time with patients, is very knowledgeable and has great bed side manner. I am almost two weeks out from my FDL Panniculectomy, and am pleased with the results so far. I did not have muscle repair or lipo, but the fat is something I can continue to work on with diet and exercise. From the side, I have no bulge of stomach so it looks like I may have gotten lucky in that department :)
