I'll be 6 weeks post tummy tuck tomorrow.
Had a couple minor complications but that was it. About an inch long area needed 5 stitches put back in, some skin irritation around the scar from all the tape and steristrips, and my belly button still looks gross from the same skin irritation and being covered for so long.
That being said, the day before I was 4 weeks post op, I woke up and literally OVERNIGHT, my swelling had DRAMATICALLY improved.
Then my surgeon opened his mouth 2 days later, and then 3 days later I swelled up again like a dang BALLOON. It's SLOWLY getting better I suppose. I look about 10/12 weeks pregnant by the end of the day I guess.
Is this common? Any cause for concern?
