I'm going to have surgery with Dr Emmanuel Mallol...
I'm going to have surgery with Dr Emmanuel Mallol Cotes in December of 2016
Feeling nervous excited etc. So many emotions. I have already made contact with him. I have paid my deposit by paypal which was very convenient. Now I need help deciding on a recovery house. I Need your help ladies which one was your favorite and why.
Plane Ticket Purchased
So my plane ticket is purchased for December 17th. This will give me enough time to get my blood work done in Dr.
Since I smoke on and off the doctor suggested some test with a specialist. This will cost an additional 150.00
These is too ensure my lungs are ok.
Has anyone else had this done?
2 months away
Dr Mallol sent a list of things I need to bring.
What did you ladies bring that's not on that list? Or what do you suggest I bring.
Blood work done
So I went to my primary physician got my blood work done and everything is perfect. .. my hemoglobin was at 12.1 so I will continue to take my vitamins.
I have been taking folic acid one a day
Vitamins c and b complex and 2 iron pills a day
So instead of loosing weight I have gained about 8 pounds.
I'm one month and five days from surgery and need to loose 10 pounds what do you ladies suggest?
Have any of you ladies has chin lipo with Mallol if so please share your experience.
I think I want to add this to my surgery
Less than 30 days to go
So many emotions and concerns.
My biggest concern right now is infections.
19 days to go
So I was so hesitate to put my pictures up here but here they are.
I want to share everything from beginning to end.
Currently I'm 178 pounds so I have gained 8 pounds since starting my journey.
I have been drinking way to much soda.
Starting this Monday only water for me .
I'm going to try and drink 1 gallon daily.
I need to loose these 8 pounds before surgery.
If you guys have any suggestions I would truly appreciate it.

I'm extremely nervous but trying to stay positive about the outcome
20 Dec 2016
Day of treatment
I have been waiting for surgery since 7am it's is know almost 12 noon and still haven't seen the doctor.
I have a terrible headache because I'm hungry.
My booty hurts bad as well as my back.
I'm unable to get up from the bed because my hemoglobin is 8.3 so I'm having to get a blood transfusion. I need two bags of blood to try to get it up at least 10.5 before they let me go to the recovery house
Still in pain from all the lipo, my booty hurts bad.
Drain keeps getting clogged.
I'm at sea lily rh and love it here.
Waiting to get my first massage today
I was able to sleep all night last night.
Feela little better. I can wall by myself now .
So I'm looking forward to tomorrow
I was able to move alot more today
Able unable to use the restroom without assistance now. This will be my third message. I am still really swollen but loving what I see in the mirror. Healing process is not fun but it is worth it I don't regret it one bit.
8 days I think
I have lost count of the days.
I'm so frustrated and I'm ready to go home I'm very irritable.
I will have to keep my drain for another 2 days at least which sucks.
I'm loving my new shape more and more every day.
I'm needing a new faja since mine has already been altered twice and everyday it gets bigger and bigger.
My scar doesn't want to heal.
I don't know what to do.
The scabs keep coming off and it starts bleeding .
I was sleeping also allergic to the medical tape which cased a burn and my skin came off.
I still have my drain not a happy camper but what can I do.
I'm so ready to go back home.
No pain just totally uncomfortable
I need to get used to this new body because I feel very uncomfortable
My biggest fear is coming true
I don't know what to think
Dr says it's not an infection I think it is
But anyway it looks horrible
Not sure what the heck is going on
But I'm extremely scared
Dr insured me there is no infection
So Dr Mallol insured me there is not an infection. Today it looks much better
I think today is day 15 or 16 and I still have my drain. I guess my body is not ready for this drain to be removed.
Anyway I paid for another seven days at the recovery house.
I really love it here.
Sea lily is the best.
So I'm finally going to get this drain removed so I can go back home tomorrow.
I went to see my primary physician today and was informed I have an infection
I was advised by Dr Mallol 3 different times that this was not an infection.
My Dr is trying to refer me to a plastic surgeon. She is afraid my incision won't open since it's showing signs of separation.
I'm seriously stressed out.
I was put on leave from work because of this
I was also put on bectrim yesterday
I believe it's working but the ps says that my umbilical cord is showing signs of dying
Still the same
I'm not healing fast enough.
My wounds still looks the same.
