My arms where A *****!!!
for me, stomach not bad at all..
i was on pain killers for about 4 days
after that I didn't need them all the time
i took them at nite to help sleep for an additional day or so...
But, at the time I was really like, what did I do!
now, loving it, but it's definatly a process..
i am at home, but once I could get up and down by myself
At 1week, it was a lot better...
i was feeling fairly Ok after all the drains where gone..
but lightheaded and weak...and I was also not completly
walking upright for over a month ( although, it was very slight..
i could tell and so could my hubby)
also, I had muscle tightening, so I wasn't cleared for anything for 8 weeks...
EDITED TO ADD:
i had 5 drains, 3 where removed after a week, the other 2 the following week..
also on blood thinner shots for 5 days... Not a regret after seeing the final result!
he may be too far for you, but I suggest looking on Dr.Joseph Capella's web site
His specialty is dealing with massive weight loss patients...hes BEYOND AWESOME!!!!!
Yay!! So excited for you!! I am definitely planning on looking into this in the future! I have also never had a flat tummy ever so I'm sure it will be quite a shock!
Keep us updated!
