I was very excited the morning of my Lifestyle Lift surgery. It seemed I had been waiting a very long time for this, and now it was finally really happening. I had been searching the Internet for Lifestyle Lift information, read everything I could (both good and bad) and felt like I was ready. I understood there would be pain and discomfort for a while, but I had gathered together everything I believed would help me heal quickly, including my courage, and I was ready to “get’er done.”
I had prepared a very comfortable leather chair and ottoman in my living room with pillows to prop my head up and a comforter to keep me warm. It just so happened that it was chilly the morning of my surgery and got colder through the week, so my chair was perfect. You’ll see it in the videos. Some people use recliners, but we didn’t have one. I almost lived in my chair for two weeks.
My first night after my Lifestyle Lift procedure was the worse. I had to deal with the pain and also nausea as the Vicodin the doctor prescribed for pain made me sick and nauseous. The video will give you an idea of how bad I felt. Really bad!
