Help! Too compressed? How to sit?
By ClwtrCW on 12 Dec 2011
I'm sorry if this has been asked/answered a dozen times, but I was having trouble searching the forums. I had a breast lift, and tummy tuck with lipo on Dec. 8th, so I'm 4 days post op. I'm a little freaked out by the swelling. My compression garments are so tight due to swelling that I can hardly breathe at times. It is a little better today, but seriously.. so, so tight. Is it normal? ALSO - is it going to hurt my results to sit upright? Like a little bent at the waist? I'm worried that will make some kind of weird crease in things. My doctor says "normal, normal" but I like at least 15 non-qualified opinions :)
