Has anyone had one? I had it done Friday afternoon. I am not expecting results today because of the weekend, hoping tomorrow, Wednesday at the latest.

I have to ask, if you have had one done, did it hurt? I am quite sore. She told me I could take the pressure bandage off on Saturday, but to leave the steri-strips in place until they fall off on their own. I am perfectly happy to do that, as I can see it leaked in there and it is starting to bruise.

Luckily I had a distracting weekend, so I didn't think too much. But I have been anxious all day.
