Tummy feels like a round, hard ball. Normal?
By gina42 on 14 Jun 2012
I'm 7days post-op TT w/lipo, I still have the 2 drains in but they have very little output (about 10cc each). I'm wearing a compression garment (stage 1) alternating with the binder (less comfortable). With the garment, it feels really, really tight. I'm walking about more, no heavy lifting or straining. My abdomen looks and feels like a round, hard ball...doesn't feel like most of it is swelling. I'm 5'2" 125# and this round abdomen is a lot bigger than the loose skin I had. Just don't know if it's normal. I have an appt. in 3 days. Feeling discouraged.
