Hi ladies. On July 23, 2013. I went to DR to get a tummy tuck and lipo/fat transfer to my hips. The worst pain I ever experienced in my life. I would rather give birth to my 4 children then go through that pain again. I'm still very swollen and the scares are crazy looking. I guess my question is. Is this swellon ever going to go away?

I'm three years out from my surgery and I still have some swelling right over my belly button if I stand too long. I'm sure it will go away soon though!

I hate that you've hurt so badly. I've had very little if any real pain. My ps said lipo is what causes the pain and majority of swelling. I did not have lipo. I still swell but not bad. I can't be much help to you but I am thinking about you and pray it gets easier very soon!

Thank you Peachesnsausage. The pain is getting better as the day goes by. Now I'm just swellon. This tues coming will be 3 week since Surgary and I'm still having my ups and down days. I do make it my point of duty to walk a mile a day. I did do some research and walking seems to help. I really just can't wait for this god forsaking swelling to go down. Thank you for your prayers and your positive words. It means a lot.
