Hey my boos. Ik some of y'all prob bn thinkin where dis bish at? Wtf? Lol I'm still I'm dr...will be leaving shortly nd I'm sooooooooo happy to b going home. This experience has bn a roller coaster ride y'all . I am loving my body but honestly this has bn the worst experience of my life. I haven't bn thru much in my lifetime so this def takes the cake. I bn wondering hav the ppl who went felt the same as me but jus dnt say it?!! Idk bc there r so many talks of round twos. I had lipo of back flanks abdomen nd arms with fwt grsfting to butt nd filled in my hips. Ok lemme get started on my journey.
€€€Day 1: may. 3rd. Yay it's finally here. Bn waiting forth is day for what seems like forever but it's finally here nd ill b yilyfied soon. Me, mom, mz Alston, nd mz Alston mom arrives at cipla abt 7am. We go upstairs with Yira to the 4 th floor where the waiting game begins. I go see littleinthemiddle nd make surges she's good. She's doin well jus ready to get outta there. We go back out nd wait around some more. We had our blood work, ekg, nd chest X-ray the day before. While u wait u will answer a questionnaire, get ur blood pressure taken again nd get weighed on a scale. Turns out I weighed a lot more thn I thought lol. A whopping 170 y'all, I said hot damn lol. Thts ws sooo pathetic. Even tho my period had jus ended.They told me my hemo was 14.4 so I was in there like swimwear nothing left to do but wait. I saw yily for the 1 st time nd it ws a omg moment, idk but she jus has a presence about her something so regal. So while she chatted in Spanish with mz Alston I decided to take some pics of this donk everyone keeps mentioning. Haha. I c cabral nd everyone I c him I get uncomfortable lol. Ik wht he's done to ppl so he's scary to me.
Yily kept her word me nd mommy were 1 st if the day. Mom went 1 st abt 1130. She had a uneventful sx thnk God. I went 2nd. Yira comes in nd tells me to get undressed yily is coming. i tell yira tht i wannab knocked out cold for sx bc i hear so many ppl saying thry r awake nd indnt want tht it scares me, she has this blank look on her face nd jus smiles nd says ok lol.Yily came in my room and started talking to me, Yira was there to translate. She asked me what I wanted and I said "MIRA COMO SI, MALDITA MALDITA " which meant look like you, like damnnnnn!!! She laughed nd said ok. Told me my body will b perfect bc I already hav a great build. I told her to fill in my hips too. I reiterated to her tht I had butt injections. She said ok nd tht there is higher risk for infection and tht pmma is very dangerous. You dnt hav problems initially but eventually she says it will cause problems. Geesh I hope not!! So she says I will do anyway but I have to tell u tht. She asked me wht ppl say abt her on realself nd we talk abt some of the things like her attitude, ppl expecting her to work miracle nd b a magician, the fact tht so many ppl r switching to Duran bc she doesn't do big butt or bc she can't contact them like she once did. I'm a realist so I totally understood where she ws coming from. We talked abt her butt being done by Duran, she said this is a lie, Yira said If we saw her mothers nd sisters they all hav the same bodies. All natural. Apparently yilys 6 yr old daughter has the same big ol ass, I ddnt c her but mz Alston did. Her butt looks real tho, look at pics above nd decide for urself. She snaps some pics of me nd she is gone with the wind. I put on gown nd I gt wheeled out at 3pm. I see Yira at the nurses station nd I say I need my blue pill!!!! She looks at me smiles nd thts it. I'm on the gurney like WHT THE FIZNUCK I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDMY BLUE PILL. so immediately I'm put in a stressful mood bc I ddnt get my damn pill. I'm like take it easy shes coming nd she will give it to u. Girl bye Yira was a no show.
Anesthesiologist comes n nd I say azul azul azul pill nd tried to make a motion like I was taking a pill lol. Tht ddnt work he tried to tell me he wld take care of me not to worry nd he started my iv. Now here comes the twilight zone experience. From tht point on it ws like an outta body experience. So crazy so hard to explain. It ws like I was watching everything take place from outside my body. I was sitting up with my head in the surgical assistants chest while thy did my epidural. I felt them do it, I felt like a scraping sensation in my back nd I gss whn thy finally got it done my whole body kinda lit up like my limbs sprouted out like my whole body gt shocked. U wnt understand unless the same thing happened to u. The whole time I'm thinking when the hell ima fall asleep when the hell ima fall asleep, is it now, is it now?? It never happened. Nd in my mind I ws traveling places for the surgery lol but I'd always come to nd b n the mans chest still. So strange. I felt thm doing my surgery it ddnt hurt but I felt everything, I ws singing nd talking nd saying hi yily hi yily. Gracias yily lmao. Moving my head from right to left tapping my fingers. Crazy y'all. I think bc I ws moving nd running my mouth so damn much thy kept administering more anesthesia. Hell idk.
So somehow I'm out nd I wake up n the room. I hav the shakes rlly bad.meanung ur body is shaking like crazy like its cold nd ur teeth r chattering, I can't tell u how long tht lasted. Thn I start vomiting. Ur so uncomfortable nd rlly dnt kno whts going on tht u jus dnt care. I'm on my back in the hospital bed nd cnt move so I jus turn my head nd throw up everything I cn. I did like 3 times, this whole time mz Alston nd her mother r there with me trying to soothe nd take care of me. Even whn I ws sleeping thy would b there ( I love thm so thy were there for me nd my mommy nd did everything thy cld since the 1 st moment We met thm to make sure we were taken care of. There were times whn mz Alton's mother left her to come c about nd help me nd my mom. They were truly a Godsend !! Treated us like family!!My boos!!!!))) whn I rlly come to its 7pm. I CANNOT FEEL EITHER ONE OF MY LEGS. I can't move thm I cnt feel them so y'all kno I'm freakin the eff out. I'm like oh lord Jesus I can't feel my legs, wht is goin on?? Nobody ever said nothing about not feeling their legs. I tell my mom she says dnt worry its from the anesthesia. Nurses say dnt worry its from the anesthesia. Yily give me a kiss says dnt worry its from the anesthesia, IT'S NORMALE!
While I was n tht bed it ws the LONGEST 12 hrs of my life. I was so handicapped I ws so worried bout my legs. I wanted to roll over nd get in my stomach but it ws so hard my body felt like a ton of bricks my legs felt like they had bags of water strapped to them. I'm like damn did yily do thigh lipo on me...in my mind thinkin well hey if she did I wnt b mad lol. So it takes everything in me but I roll over a cpl times both times going back to my back bc it ws jus so unbelievably uncomfortable lol. I jus kept lifting my head up nd throwing it down I ws so disgusted nd ready to get out tht damn bed. I wld go to sleep try to make the time go by faster nd pray tht whn I woke up my legs wld b back alive too. Hell naw thtd b too easy. My right leg ends up coming to nd being fully awake yay yay right? Wrong, my left leg is still tryna get beauty sleep. So of course I'm pissed nd confused nd feeling helpless. Shitty bc I never read of this happening to other girls. Oh well. Maria comes in n the middle of night she feeds me she soothes me nd she is soooo sweet. I'm so thankful for her. I wanted to give her a tip but I ws told we aren't allowed to do tht. She made a terrible experience better for me, God bless her:-))
So whn 7 am arrives Maria comes in so she cn clean me up nd put me n my faja. I wasn't scared of this but I wasn't rlly up to it, I ws dizzy. Happy to get off tht damn hospital bed tho. Mz Alston is there while thy r getting my faja on. She is like dayum girl yily gave u a donk. I'm like whtever, lol, not believing her. Thy r putting my faja on nd I'm dizzy as hell I jus wanna lay back down. Thy give me water nd nectar juice nd pat my head nd face with cold water. I start to feel better nd start to cry because imjus so grateful for the good help. I literally felt like I ws finna die y'all nd thy made me feel so much better. Ws feeling thankful;-)) it's difficult to stand while thy r putting the faja on bc I only gt one good leg. The other one is still doing its own thing, so I'm hobbling around with a gimpy leg wondering wtf thy did to me. But I feel great besides the incapacitated leg. I'm like shiiiiiid this a piece if cake no wonder so many folks talkin bt round twos, lol.this nothing. Word of advice dnt let day 1 set yo ass up for failure.the pain will come trust me. I see my ass nd instantly I'm in love y'all I start snapping pics like heeeeeeeeey she got a donk!!! Tht mf deflated the next dy lmfao.
Yily comes in gives hugs nd kisses asks me how I'm feeling. I'm like great beside my leg. Oh it's normale. Yeah ok. She prescribes me lyrica for my leg. Mz Alstons mom takes us to the hotel. I'm exhausted nd jus want to rest. The ac in the room isn't working right nd by this point ima hot mess. Mz Alstons mom goes nd get ours prescriptions. I go to sleep. Whn I wake up the next day I look thru the medications nd I immediately get upset. We dnt hav all our meds. She got all she cld with the money we gave her. I only needed 3 meds. The heparin , my antibiotic since I'm allergic to amoxicillin, nd I needed the lyrica for my leg. She got everything off my mothers list nd the only med I had ws my lyrica. I immediately broke down. Tears jus started streaming down my face. I'm like dammit I only wanted 3 things. I neeeeeed my antibiotic!!!! I hav these pmma shots so I neeeeed my antibiotic. I ws scared I ws gonna get an infection, I wanted to b able to follow all of yilys instructions nd immediately I was unable to do tht. Perfect503 ws talking abt all these yily girls who got infections so I ws freaked out. Instead of yily prescribing me wht she prescribed petite mami she ws telling me to get clindamycin. Wtf she ws being difficult. Y not prescribe me the damn ciproflaxacin like she did petite mami. We Cldnt find clindamycin anywhere. Needless to say I'm infection free but it took 6 days to get my antibiotic nd yily had to write a new script for ciproflaxacin smh. Ladies beware if ur allergic to amoxicillin or penicillin get tht shit n the states. My antibiotic costed 100$. Smh. Highway robbery.
The days after day 2 are a blur. I cld only sleep on my tummy. But I'd sleep in my back whn it ws comfortable. Before I had my sx I'd say I'm not sleeping on my back no way no how. Once u get it done ur gonna sleep however u can whichever way u cn. All tht bs abt sleepin on ur ass goes bye bye. U just desperately want to sleep. But I cld only sleep comfortable on my stomach, my sides hurted so bad from gettin my hips filled in nd my butt burned like crazy. I wld wake up nd my eyes wld be swelled up sooooo bad like Mini golf balls. I had my 1 st post op appt on Tuesday bc Yira ddnt hav any sleeves for me. By this time I had started having extreme headaches nd whooshing in my ear. Felt like I had brain freeze continuously, I ws delirious y'all. Drs cerenas did my post op checked my drain nd sent me on my way. I went back on Thursday bc my head hurted sooooooo bad I Cldnt take it anymore. Turns out it ws a spinal headache from the anesthesia. Lucky me again huh. Me nd all these damn side effects. Yily told me its NORMALE!! Y'all kno I ws tired if hearing tht shit by now. No IT'S NOT NORMALE, IT HAPPENS BUT ITS NOT NORMALE. BC IF IT WS NORMALE THE REST OF THESE BIATCHES WLD B WALKING ROUND FEELIN LIKE THEIR HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE LIKE I DO. MFs who went into surgery with low ass hemoglobin nd got transfusions looked nd felted better thn me, these heaux laughing nd giggling having a good ol time nd I jus wanna lay somewhere nd pass out. It wasn't always continuous but it wld come nd go. There r times I wld feel close to normal but something wasn't right. My vision ws also affected bt this spinal headache. Bright lights hurt nd it seemed like I had two diff strengths of contacts in. It's sooooo weird.
By day 5 my foot was all the way working again. Praise God. Yily prescribed me some migraine meds to help with the headache, nd another to help me sleep. I appreciate my mother so much bc even tho she ws n pain she took off her patient hat nd out on tht mama cap. I ws n the room resting nd she ws out the entire day going from pharmacy to pharmacy getting my medicine for my head. Mommy u r more thn appreciated and I may not always show u but I lovvvve u sooooo much. U have bn sooooo good to me:-)) a special thnx to mz Alstons mother as well. She left her own child to go with my mother nd make sure I ws better. I love her nd her daughter cnt wait to visit thm. Tht medicine helped somewhat. I dnt hav the brain freeze feeling anymore but up until this past saturday everything ws still a bit foggy. Today I feel great tho nd looking forward to going home!! I got my drain out Friday I ws so geeked to get rid of tht ball nd chain. We checked out of the hotel nd checked into the marriot renaissance jaragua. If u dnt speak english stay in one of the malecon hotels. Make sure u bring lots of extra cash if u can. Shit comes up nd u need tht almighty dollar. Bring as much dinero as u cn nd hav back up plans for ur back up plans, u cn never b tooooo prepared. Trust me;-)
I had 4 massages while in dr. One wit mz Alstons massage lady. After i saw my body tht 1st time after i gt my massage yall i thought I ws alllll tht annnnnnd a bag if chips!! U hear mr??? Lmao. I started dancing n the mirror like heeeey this girl strapped lol. I wlda stayed butt ass naked if I cld hav lol. i 2 with Tati who is yilys massage lady. She is greeeeeeeat nd sooo sweet. She charges 31$ each we gave her 40$ each both times. She is a sweetheart. We had our last massage with a friend if Tati I think her name is Brittany idk. Omg yall she is awesome. She is more aggressive thn Tati but she is the truth. These massages feel good but thy also hurt like hell whn thy use their hands nd not the machine, I jus keep wondering who I will hav do thm in us tht is experienced in massaging post op lipo patients. My arms feel hard idk if thts NORMALE lol, hope thy soften up nd get smaller. Nd tht lipo on thm wasn't a waste, thy hurt but not killer, I hav bn able to use thm since thy were lipo'd. After Tati massaged me the 1st time I ended up feeling some excruciating pain where it felt like my skin ws ripping apart nd to shreds like it ws on fire. Tht shit cray. How long is tht gonna last, pure pain??
I like my body so far. My waist is gonna b soooo tiny whn it's all said and done,idk wht my butt will look like. Measurements were 40-31.5-44 the day of surgery and now today they are 39-(27.5-28)-45.5. Most of my day 1 pic ws swelling. Yily put all my fat on the top since I hav a lot of ass on the bottom. I'm thinkin it'll end up like an apple ass. I hope. I told her gimme an ass like she has. I probably forgot some stuff but ill add as it comes to mind. It takes a special kinda person to deal with me, a lot of yall dnt know this but ima bitch on wheels. i cn b pretty evil at times even tho its not on purpose its jus who i am. this surgery will teach u a lot about yourself, ur pain tolerance nd show u wht ur rlly made of. Special thnx to my mommy for havin tht strong backbone...being able to love nd accept me as I am even whn she wanted to slap me nto next week, we def got on each others nerves. Thanks to mz Alston nd her mother, littleinthemiddle, bbellabooty, cgray, kimmiee nd ensure addict. God bless u all nd u all helped me in ur own little way. The small things mean sooooo much. It ws an emotional roller coaster but i made it thru!!!!! be careful wht u say to ppl who hav had surgery, b careful how u treat ppl who hav had surgery. this is a helluva ride. i applaud ppl who come back here immediately nd share their experience nd post pics nd keep us updated bc realself has bn the laaaaaaaast thing on my mind. But it's my bday ill b traveling alllll day. Any questions feel free to ask nd ill answer.later boos!! Xoxoxo;-))
