Anyhow, I had a tummy tuck with lipo on my flanks. Three drains which were out on day 3. I took pain meds for 2 days and used cannibis oil for pain at night. The Valium was very helpful but left me feeling foggy, so I discontinued that at day 7.
The pain has been manageable and the compression garnet ugly and strangely comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time.
I am BEYOND thrilled with my swollen results! I know the swelling will go down in time and I am hurting but I could not wear my normal work pants today because they almost fell off!
Dr. K...and his entire staff are AMAZING people. They are kind and compassionate and very patient with those panicked questions.
