In two days, the excitement begins!!!
I have the hair, mani/pedi all in place. The easy on/off outfit selected. Scripts and comfort foods lined up. Just waiting for the date to arrive.
This is about the time when the butterflies start to kick in my stomach, and the result is that the band reacts!
My primary goal over the next two days will be to get PLENTY of fluids into me, and basically stick to a fairly liquid diet.
Because I am becoming a tiny bit anxious, my band snaps shut like an alligator ready to take on its prey (dramatic I know, but that's what it feels like).
So...not to torture myself, I know the right thing to do is to stick to a diet of protein shakes, yogurt, tea..and lots of water.
I want to make sure I am very well hydrated before each of the procedures.
Phase I will be in the doctors OR suite (for some cosmetic touch ups) and Phase II is in the hospital (for the 3 area lipo).
I am very anxious to see how the results will look from the lipo. I am hoping for a smoother hip line and not these little mogul bumps from my hips to my thigh.. if I can get that result I will be happy.
I don't think any amount of exercise would smooth these areas out, so that is why I am resorting to lipo.
I think the worst part will be the weeks to come afterwards. I will have to wear this compression garment that will go down to my knees. The worst part is when you have to pee (no further explanation needed, just know that it is a pain to navigate, you pick your moments).
So, now I just anticipate, as I continue to check out the different before and after photos, I hope that I achieve similar results. I have a great surgeon, who I trust (and who I have probably paid for a vacation or two from the number of services rendered).
I will keep you updated .. fingers crossed!
