    @roo28 , hi too I did permanent makeup here in ca, and I would require a letter of release from your surgeon if it was me. So definitely contact him. Depending on what state you are in the requirements are different.

    @Layla, thank you. I did message my surgeon about the leg being longer, he said it will settle and that sometimes a lift is needed. So I got one to help balance me out because I seem way off even my pt guy said it. The surgeon didn’t say to use the lift now I just got it. Do you think it’s bad...

    Oh my, I’m 3 weeks post surgery and I can’t imagine going back to work. I do so little at it is compared to my normal activity. I’m pooped just walking for a short time. If you can I would really push for more time off or less hours as others have said. Good luck to you, hope it all works out.

    Hi all, hope your all doing well today? Are any of you very uncomfortable sitting. Like even sitting on the edge of the bed? I have to stand immediately because it’s so uncomfortable. Any suggestions? Is it that the muscle is tight from lying propped up on bed? I want to have some friends come...

    “A word of caution about using Tylenol: Do check any other medications you are taking (such as cold cures), to make sure there is no Tylenol (Acetaminophen) in them. If there is, reduce one of your regular Tylenol doses, so you stay within the safe daily limit of 4,000 mg in 24 hours.“ Yes, they...
