Hardness and swelling in DIEP flap foob

I had a unilateral mastectomy  and DIEP reconstruction 4 weeks ago today.  Recovering okay, but the new "breast" is hard as a rock and painful.  Has anyone had this experience?  How long did it take for your swelling to go down?  I've been back to the PS this week, who said "time will tell" if it's all swelling or some necrosis as well. . .
