In Need of Advice...- Ohio, OH
I'm looking to get my ankles, calfs, knee, outer...
It's been awhile but I'm on here all the time!
I'm scheduled for December 4th and have a Skype interview with him this Tuesday as I have many questions! Any suggestions in order to get ready for this procedure would be great! Are there any extra things I should buy to make my recovery a lil easier? I will be traveling alone and plan on staying in an aftercare facility the first night which happens to be really expensive, but I'm scared being alone on the first night. It's only a month away and I'm nervous and excited...not to mention I only told a couple people. I want to keep this private and am hoping I can find the support on here rather than telling everyone who sees me everyday. I feel like this will change my life dramatically and how I feel about myself. My expectations aren't anywhere near supermodel but just an overall better appearance. I need the ego boost. In the end this is the best gift I could give myself. I will keep updating and let you know how my overall journey turns out as well as my results from Dr. Stoker.
A few recent pics...
It's getting closer!
Less than two weeks :)
I have ordered a pre and post op kit so that I heal faster as well as compression stockings. Everything's booked and in order now I play the waiting game! So anxious and excited to get there!
4 more days til I'm Cali bound :)
Very excited! Chores at home getting done post op and my bag is halfway packed...papers in order...prescriptions ready. Let's do this ;)
had my procedure today...now comes the hard part...
On another note im dissapointed with my arms...although im swollen and full of fluids he didnt lipo on the one part im insecure about. How do i know he didnt lipo there? ...because im not bruised there and a flab of fat is buldging out like it always has : /
So i went back up there! only an hour or so after i had left i went back to tell him im not happy with my arms lol. He politely told me i need to go home and get some rest and that im just swollen and full of fluids. I just hope hes wiilling to do something about my buldge because i want my moneys worth!! So im looking foward to meeting with him tomorrow. wish me luck!
I just had my last visit with the dr!
I recommend him to anyone looking for the same work because of their similar insecurities. Today is also Day One of no pain. I can stretch now without a problem. May I also mention I am still taking post op meds that I bought from makemeheal.com and have come to realize how important massaging your lower legs are in this particular operation. Because I had my ankles calves and knees done my swelling was worse than I expected a week after my surgery. And stayed excessively swoll for a total of 5 days or so. But because of massage it has helped tremendously. I love taking off my garment to shower lol
I felt rushed almost every time I talked to him yet he's very polite and has a great attitude. I assume he's a very busy man with a lot to do so I don't take it personally although I would have enjoyed a better patient/doctor connection. Wendy and Bri are awesome and helped me through most of it :) very generous very caring. 4 more weeks and I will update my results....I should also mention that when my swelling was excessive Dr. stoker made it a point to call and see how I was doing :)
