Everything went great, no problems at all. My Dr removed 9 lbs of fat!
In my consultation he had told me I had a lot in my stomach, so probably most of it was there. My stomach has always been my trouble spot, I've never been able to get rid of it, no matter how hard I tried!
He also lipo'd my flanks (back fat), inner/outer thighs, and my hips.
My morning started at 6 a.m. We had to be there at 7:30. I had no problem waking up, I was so excited! No makeup or contacts...eeek!
Next thing I know, I was in a wheelchair trying to open my eyes to see my nurse and Jeremy.
Jeremy said the first thing I said was "I'm so happy!" Haha!
I was shaking real bad, I remember asking if the chair was vibrating. Not sure why I was shaking, maybe I was just cold.
They loaded me in the car and we headed home. I thought I would be real sleepy, but I wasn't. I took a short nap after awhile, but I felt really good.
I get to wear this thing for the next month! 24/7 for 2 weeks, then 12 hours a day for 2 weeks.
My gf Charity, dropped off some goodies for me. She knows me well!
Jeremy fixed me some delicious chicken noodle soup. It was perfect.
Then I had a crazy craving for blueberry yogurt. And I still do. I would rather have blueberry yogurt than anything else, even ice cream! I know, it's shocking. So one of my sweet sisters went to the store and bought me some. Oh happy day.
Other than that, I've only been eating saltine crackers. I can't take pain meds on an empty stomach.
I'm not supposed to go back to work until Tuesday. Now I'm wishing I had taken the whole week off. Not because I'm in any pain, but to go from sitting to standing is very hard! My stomach is real sore and feels very heavy. But once I'm walking around, I feel fine, it's just that changing of positions.
I have to give a shout out to Jeremy. He has been so wonderful and taken such excellent care of me. He has supported me in this from the very beginning. There's no way I could've done this without him!
I truly am so happy! I'm so so glad I had liposuction. I haven't regretted it for a moment!
