I didn't sleep well at all, was totally exhausted, and feared the unknown. Could I cope with the pain, and the aftercare were both real fears for me. I'm comfortable and back on my sofa. Wouldn't even known my inner thigh was touched - the main pain I feel right now is in my calves. I will know more about the pain when the anaesthetic wears off. The worst part of the procedure is the local anaesthetic being put in. The rest is just weird and a little uncomfortable - all of it is totally do-able. There were three nurses in today- and all easy to talk to, totally comfortable. Do wear in baggy clothes. I walked out looking like the Michellin man. I took a sedative an hour before it began. Drink lots of fluid and don't panic over it the way I did - it's not that bad! I have lymphatic drainage booked for tomorrow evening.
I do know that 700ml of fat was removed - in the bottom of the container there was approx 200ml of blood/fat.- so I don't know exactly how much fat was removed in total maybe 625ml?? I was very sleepy afterwards - I had a friend wait and drive me home. The procedure in total was just under two hours.
