Getting ready for procedure on Wednesday, a little...
getting ready for procedure on Wednesday, a little nervous. wish I could find someone on here that used the dr i'm going to, dr Robert bowan. back, sides and stomach getting done. up until late 20s I was thin. after 2 babies and medications that can make you gain weight here I am. I actually recently lost about 50 lbs, but I need a jump start to help me get back to it! hoping this procedure will be successful and make me look and feel better.
day 2 pain
had my procedure done yesterday morning, I drove home by myself about an hour and 20min, no problem got home felt ok for about 10 minutes or so and then I got so dizzy and lightheaded and clammy. I laid down and felt better in about 10 minutes. I leaked like crazy. this morning it seems to have subsided, however; I am so so sore. I cant hardly move with out help. the hydrocodone/acetam doesn't help the pain and it makes me nauseous. my instructions ay to take 2 xtra strength Tylenol every 4 to 6 hrs. really doesn't seem to be helping. I really hope this horrible pain goes away soon and cant even sit, get up, or go to the bathroom without a struggle.
1 day post
not very happy right now, hopefully swelling and fluid will go away.
Not feeling very satisfied
It's been 17 days. I feel as big as ever. My pants aren't fitting any better. I guess I'm still swelled and have fluid. I am having hivamat treatments (lymphatic massage) guessing that should help. But I definitely had higher expectations for better results. I feel very frustrated with myself for spending so much money and not getting dramatic results. I even had a crying spell today.
17 days post and frustrated
I see a lot of reviews that seem to be better experiences than I have had!
an absolute waste of hard earned money!
almost $10000 and over 4 months later and NO change on the scale, NO change in my clothes! I'm told they took 10 pounds out, but I don't see it anywhere! when I went for my post op appointment I was seriously considering changing my mind, but when I talked to the ladies in the office and asked them if they thought it would really be worth it, they emphatically said 'absolutely your stomach will be flat!', I said "REALLY! Because I was going to change my mind about doing this!", and they responded again 'that no one has ever been disappointed with their results!'. I went back for lymphatic massages 5 times. one of the times I was on the table and it COLLAPSED! I was sore enough and then that happened, not only did it hurt I was embarrassed and humiliated! I expressed my disappointment to no avail. the only thing I was offered was another procedure at a discounted price. this situation has caused me constant anxiety since I realized it was a mistake. I'm still sore in some places and numb which wouldn't bother me if I would've had good results.
