Today is day-6! Day of surgery, weighed 197lbs. Today 199lbs. Took Lasix water pills first 4 days. Size 5 panties pre-surgery, size 9 today. I was gonna cover up my tattoos, but this is live, raw, uncut, x-rated...never before seen exclusive footage!
Today I emailed my pcp to request a different antibiotic because I could no longer take the dizziness & headaches caused by Cephalexin/Keflex. She prescribed me Cefadroxil (500mg - 2 per day), hopefully it works better for me. Today I feel okay, stiffness in my back, tenderness in my thighs. I need to order a 4th compression garment. The size 44/3XL (vedette 932) I am wearing daily (that I had altered) still doesn't give me enough compression anywhere. The size medium/36 (vedette 929) fits my body but the lace is too tight on my tender swollen thighs. I have a size 40 stage 2 columbian powernet garment doesn't fit yet. So yes, I need a 4th garment like yesterday! It needs to be long/ankle length, not sure if I want stage one or stage 2. I could solve a Rubics cube easier than I can figure out the proper placement of lipo foam, still unable to put them on alone. I wake up, foams are bent, twisted, creased, etc. I didn't get stomach lipo, only love handle lipo. Have a lump/knot swelling near each love handle, one kinda looks like a seroms, not sure yet. I still have back fat, Hasan advised me before surgery that some of what I think is backfat, is excess skin on my back....I have no plans of removing that....next! I told him I needed him to add hips, he said I will just lipo your love handles...I said oh is that the "illusion of hips"? I need the real thing, but he didn't add them....moving on. He told me between my love handles and back he could probably give me approximately 500cc's per cheek. That said, my inner thighs were lipo'd from "cooch to knee", not to improve the appearance of my thighs, just because he needed more fat to build-a-butt. He said due to my previous surgeries and scar tissue, all the fat I had wasn't guaranteed to be "good fat" he could use. He said what if I can take 1,000 cc's and only be able to reinsert 700ccs total. He said scar tissue under the skin is kinda like a keloid under the skin. He said he had to work hard just to inject fat in my deformed butt caused by butt implants many years ago. I was a difficult case, damaged goods. I didn't walk in perfect, therefore I surely didn't expect to walk out perfect. He told me there was a strong possibility that my butt would still be deformed after surgery (from the side - the pointyness). He said I am not trying to be negative, just giving you the worst case scenario and realistic expectations. When I originally planned to have BBL, my only intentions was to fix my deformed butt that I have lived with for 10yrs. It was never really about having a big ole booty. I just wanted to be comfortable in my own skin again. I wanted to be able to walk around naked in the comfort of my own home and not avoid looking in mirrors. I have dated a few guys short term, off/on over the past 10yrs and they never seen me naked with the lights on. I don't even think my doc has seen my butt lol. All my scars/flaws/ imperfections from my previous botched surgeries, I accepted myself years ago, but my butt tho? Seemed like a curse! I didn't appreciate my flat butt pre-implants until the deformity. I have always had to wear a very tight girdle to round out the deformity because it showed in my clothes. So yes, when I decided to have BBL, the main goal was to fix my butt. I didn't know my other problem areas could be addressed. If my love handles, back fat, hips improve over time, that would be a bonus. My next surgery will be to remove my busted breast implant. BBL surgery is approx 2-2.5hr surgery, and it took much longer than 2hrs for my body to get like this pre-BBL. If I later decide I am not happy with round 1, round 2 is an option for touch-ups. As for now, I am good where I'm at...waiting for swelling to go down. Looks small in pics, big shelf booty in person. I am very grateful and forever humbled by this experience. My body is my temple, it's also my testimony. Thanks for allowing me to share my journey. Thanks for your continuous support.
