April 28 – All the walking in the heat yesterday made my lipedema pain flare (thank God I’m having surgery!) Since my surgery wasn’t until late afternoon, I opted for a pedicure (sans lotion, no lotion day of surgery) with a neck massage. Then stopped later for a foot massage. Good choices. Back to the hotel to bathe in Hibeclens, an antibacterial cleanse before surgery. The surgery center was stacked up, so I didn’t get back until later which meant I didn’t leave until 11:30 pm. I was starving after surgery, so we ordered delivery.
