April 18′ 2012
Went in for procedure for lipo on my outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and buttocks….was nervous but excited….my blood pressure was taken, elevated of course, but to be expected, since I was nervous, but I was made comfortable through out the process…being weighed, measured, pictures taken….I became less nervous…Trevor my Pa who was going to do the procedure, came in marked the areas and answered all my questions. During the procedure, Trevor and I talked through out and I was not in any pain…if I needed more numbing..I was able to advise…which was minimal….seeing the fat removed was awesome. After my procedure, I had lots of drainage and I was sore, especially my buttocks. I immediately took some pain medication which helped.

Went to work, was sore, like a major workout, had some drainage, my right outer thigh and left inner thigh, I only took. Motrin for pain, which is all I needed….people at work noticed right away that I had something done. When I told them I had lipo and I did it the day before, they were amazed and thought I was crazy to go to work the next day. I felt good, just a little sore, not something I couldn’t handle. Everyone at work wanted to know where I went and said I looked amazing…

Got up in the. Morning, still sore, but manageable, was quite bruised, my outer thighs, and. my buttocks…my soreness was from the bruising, which I was told would happen..I found it uncomfortable to get in my pickup truck, but Motrin helped me with the soreness. My drainage was almost gone, some drainage on my right outer thigh, no drainage my inner thigh, I was almost done with drainage. Working that day, I felt. More comfortable and was able to sit better…the day before, my buttocks were very tender like I did 200 crunches.

Last day of work,got up in the morning and was less sore, and getting in my truck a lot easier and no drainage….kept the pads in my compression garment, just in case, but after 6 hours of working took them out….they kept sliding down my legs…they had to go…I continued to take Motrin, for the soreness, which was from the bruising.
