Status post Inner thigh lift 12/14/17 feels like torture

on 12/17/17 2:40 pm - San Antonio, TX

Well, the lower body lift was better than anticipated. The inner thigh lift is a lot worse. I woke up in recovery feeling fine. Any movement at all sent my pain level through the roof. After I made it home I was only able to use the Go Girl to urinate. Thank goodness someone recommended it to me. I cried a few times the first night and evening. I was able to sleep better last night. I fell this morning trying to get up and the pain level was beyond a 10. I have zero appetite but am trying to keep up my protein intake for healing purposes. Please pray for uneventful speedy recovery. Thanks.

I do not have any drains. Legs are wrapped in ace bandage and u started my period today.

Oh no - please call your surgeon about pain management! You should not be at pain 10!

Do you have someone to help you get up so that you can avoid falling? Do you have a lift recliner? Do you have access to a toilet riser?

Please be safe!!

Thighs are the worst. It will get better trust me. I had two. I had thought TT was the worse but nope thighs are hard. Rest rest rest is the best advise plus don't get constipated.

How long were you out of work? Recovery time at home?
