Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
17 Days Post Op and Still Draining 45cc's Per Day After Tummy Tuck. Does a Vegan Diet and Large Weightloss Inhibit Recovery?
I'm 17 days post op and my left day is still putting out approx 40-45cc's per day.I pretty much sit elevated in bed all day hoping that it will slow down faster. My right drain is only 15cc's per day.I'm concerned whether this is unusual to even still have drains in for this long. Im a vegan and wondering if that in anyway may slow my recovery.Also Prior to surgery I lost about 75lbs (Which I've kept off for about 3 years). Does any of this explain why I'm still draining this much fluid?
