I MADE IT TWO WEEKS! 24-7 compression is not for the faint of heart. It felt so good to take of the pair that I’ve had on since the surgery and squeeze into a new one. The arms look great! Definitely a big transformation I can see right away, compared to the other three surgeriesContinue reading “15 Days Post-op Arms”

Surgery #4 – arms!
Hello Spokane! I’ve made to the (hopefully) final one! Tomorrow I have my Lipedema removal surgery for full arms. This is one I’m really interested in to see how my arms feel after they heal.

It’s been a minute – regular posting is hard! I guess my resume will never say “Influencer”! I made it the 8 weeks after my last leg surgery. I am released from my 24/7 compression cage. I’ll still wear it almost all the time but it’s nice to make that choice. I have to sayContinue reading “Made it 8 weeks”
Another trip to the salon for the other daughter! Another picture of my swollen feet… I had to order compression one size down, so at least something is either stretching out or slimming down! Just not my ankles and feet! #lipedemarevolution #lipedemareductionsurgery #lipedema #fatreduction
I took one of my daughters and her friend (& my best friend) to see Lizzo last night. What a Big Girl Energy festival of joy! I’m 32 days post-op. I feel like I have a toddler whose age I keep saying in months… We had to drive an hour plus 45 minutes of waitingContinue reading “Lizzo!”
