I have always been an active person. I used to even do fitness competitions. My body reflected the heavy weights I lifted as I had strong arms and legs and a small waist. NOW cam baby number 3, and I was now 30. I gained more than I planned and life got in the way of my plans to go back to the gym 5 days a week. Not to mention I had fat ( on my back) where I never saw it before. I was actually embarrassed to go to the gym around the people I used to work out around. The dr. wanted to do just my back and back thighs, then come back but I convinced him to do front thighs, abdomen (upper lower) back thigh and back. I thought I would recover quickly and have no problems! yikes I was so wrong.
MY legs were the worse probably because of all the muscle. And because I had lipo on 360 degrees of my body I had no way of being comfortable. They prescribed oxycodone, Perkiset, which made me itch all over so I asked for something else. It is now 3 weeks later. I feel fine, but have to remember not to push it. I have hurt myself trying to do what I normally do. I can not run yet, found that out, it kinda hurts when you do! My swelling is still up, but drastically reduced from day 1. I took a shower the first night home, and I tell you, showers are god's gift after lipo, it feels so good and you feel so clean!
