So I mentioned in my last update that I was feeling uncomfortable and had the rumbling and whatnot, but it got much worse as the night went on :( I was cursing to myself a lot last night, haha. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't lay down.. I either had to sit upright or walk around. I tried going to the bathroom, took another stool softener, tried to make myself burp. I was in agony. The nurse came to my room randomly at midnight to check on me, and offered me medicine for my gas. It didn't work right away and almost an hour passed and I finally decided to just lay down and deal with it until I fell asleep. The pain got better not too long after laying down and I finally fell asleep. But I woke up at 5am this morning ???? I couldn't go back to sleep. So today is going to be a loooong day. I hope I can nap after my appointment. So since I was awake, I decided to take my shower early and just get ready for the day since my appt is much earlier than yesterday. I took off my garment by myself, which wasn't hard to do, since I've been unhooking it myself since day 2, to relieve the pressure and pain. So I got all showered but didn't wash my hair since I did it yesterday. I asked the nurse to wash my garment and some of my clothes, since my tanks I've been wearing under my garment have been getting fluids on them. After my shower, the nurse had breakfast waiting for me. It was delicious! But it did start to give me indigestion again, dang-it. Not bad though.. I could just hear the noises more than I had pain. So hopefully that's the end of it today. I ate, took my pain meds and my some of my other vitamins and whatnot. While I waited for the driver, Nick, to get here, which wouldn't be long.. he needed to pick me up by 8:45a, I asked one of the nurses for tweezers bec my eyebrows were getting out of control haha. Nick showed up on time and we were on our way. Again, great conversations both there and back. He's really a funny guy. He had me laughing so hard on the way back, and it's pretty difficult to even laugh after a tummy tuck :) He's very complimentary too.. said how much he's enjoyed our rides and that I'm a pleasure to talk to and that I'm very intelligent. It's honestly really nice to hear those things, especially from someone you met only 5 days ago. For them to say things about you, that you probably don't consider or have thought about in a while, feels really really good. Like, we were all individuals before we met our spouses, and before we had kids, and then for a lot of us, those things that happened (getting married and having kids) basically defined us. But truly, we are much more than just that. We are brave, strong, funny, beautiful, sarcastic, hilarious, sensitive, intelligent women with a lot to say. And I truly felt my voice heard and appreciated, just by these conversations I've had with Nick. It's such a cool, unique feeling really. To be reminded of our specialties outside of being a mom or a wife and a house cleaner and a driver and a cook, etc etc. I hope I'm making sense and this is heard by someone here haha. It's a pretty darn good realization. And it totally feels like full circle when you get this makeover.. you just feel like you're getting a part of you back that you lost so long ago. A big part you like feeling confident and sexy, and happy really. Any who, haha, back to my day. So the chamber this time was much easier to get through. I truly feel like I'm doing amazing only 4 days out. I hope it's because of this chamber now, since it was pricy, haha. I was able to sit upright the entire time, which is progress, and the time flew by much quicker bec I brought my phone in with me that time and was able to update all my friends and family on how I'm doing. The place is super clean too. The guy goes in after me to wipe everything down and you have to wear those foot covers over your shoes before going in. The bathroom was clean and in the lobby, I watched a guy wipe down everything, including the couches! Haha. After that, we drove back and now I'm here, having lunch :) By the way, just as an FYI, I have been sitting on my butt for long periods of time, I have not bothered to sit on special pillows or boppys or neck pillows under my thighs, at all. I figure if the fat transfer doesn't stick, then it just doesn't. I'm focusing more on how I'm actually feeling more than anything. And I'm feeling great today. I have not felt like I've needed to take off the compression garment yet since I've put it back on this morning, so that's good. I think it did help much more that I was out and about earlier. But as soon as I'm back, I strip my clothes off and just walk around in my garment, vag hanging out and all :) haha kidding. If I'm in my room, yeah I'll just wear the garment. The nurses have seen me naked so much now lol. But if I'm actually going to bother going downstairs, I'll wear my robe. I have pictures to share :) Hope you enjoyed this post!
