Week 7 Update - Previous Thread Removed for some reason!!

Week 7 Update - Previous Thread Removed for some reason!!

Postby studiocitytodd » Mon Feb 25, 2008 2:33 pm

Hi everyone. I was posting weekly updates to a thread I started in early January, hoping it would be a record, of sorts, for somebody going through Liposculpture. However the entire thread is gone. Deleted. I'm not sure why (MODS: Can you help?) It had to be deleted in error, or it was deleted due to the fact I declined to be "interviewed" by the Make Me Heal team for an extended profile.

It's really too bad that the posting was deleted. Before my surgery, there wasn't something that described the procedure and how people were feeling physically and emotionally. A posting and thread like mine would have been very helpful, and now that I've tried to contribute positively, it's gone. I hope the moderators can help bring it back.

At any rate, here's my Week 7 update:

Today marks the end of six weeks and the beginning of seven. I had my surgery on January 7th in Los Angeles. Since the previous threads are gone, I'll remind that I had Liposculpture on my upper and lower abs, love handles, chest and chin/neck.

The recovery has gone very well. There's some swelling into the evening most nights, but it's not nearly as bad as it was a month ago, and it gets better all the time. Most of the lumpyness and hardness is gone in the day, but if I stretch and look into the mirror, you can see a little bit of where there's still hardness/lumpiness. On the whole, the upper and lower abs, love handles and chest are healing very well. I continue to go to the gym and am a lot more sensitive to what I eat, how much I eat and how it may impact my physique longer-term.

As for the chin and neck, it seems to be lagging behind as far as quickness of healing. MOST of the neck / chin is healed, however I've described a lump of gel-like fluid that was very bad early on. Some days this is better than others... for example, Saturday it felt very rigid and hard, whereas today feels fairly good. The skin right below my chin is still fairly numbed, and it feels very hard. As previously stated, patience is not my best trait, but I'm trying to be patient to let this heal.

I promise to take some Week 7 photos later today. I'm typing this from a public wi-fi spot, so I can't take photos right this minute. :shock: .

Hi Todd Thanks for the post.
I looked for the thread yesterday and was wondering what happened to it. I really like reading about your progress since I'm planning on having the same area's worked on. Hopefully the moderators can fix the problem and get your posts's back.
Thanks for the updates.

Lezza... any idea why my previous post in this Male Lipo forum was deleted? I think many people found value in this thread, and I was updating it weekly as a running commentary on what to expect. Now it's gone. What happened?



I had posted this in the post I was the OP (Original Poster) answering the question you had for me, so I brought it over here to your post as well in hopes to be of a small help and maybe to direct you in the direction to collect info.

Take care,

Hello Todd,

No I have no idea as to why or what has happened to your post, tell the truth, I'm not even sure what post you are referring to...

Maybe e-mail Miki yourownchoice@comcast.net and ask if she knows anything about it... ;-)

Take care Todd,

I can do no great things, only small things with great love.

Thanks Lezza. I saw your note on the other thread as well. I've sent a PM to Miki.

I got your message. Thanks. Very, very, very disappointing that my posting and thread was lumped in with every other posting and thread. The fact it was unceremoniously deleted without cause means this board is a waste of time. Useful information is now down the drain. I'm no worse off, but lots of people enjoyed and were calmed by this thread.

MMH should find the thread and re-consider. Read it first. Look at the note Dr. B** sent me (next thread up now) about it. But I know it won't happen. So my desire to post and help out is gone too.
