I am 17 weeks out from having a TT but I'm still so swollen. Is this normal?

I had a TT 17 weeks (4 months) ago. I'm curious to see if anyone else out there had a lot of swelling this far out. I know they say it takes 6 months to 2 years for the swelling to go away but I feel like my tummy is still so big with a lot of loose skin. My thoughts of having a TT is that your stomach is really super tight and flat to where you don't have to suck in your tummy to have it flat. Am I wrong?? I was a size 12 before surgery and I'm now just a size 10. :-( I also had lipo in my thighs which I can see a big difference but I though I would go down at least a couple of clothes sizes. Does anyone have any advice?? I go back to my Dr. tomorrow. I sure hope he has some answers for me other than to just give it more time.
