Abdominal Damage Due to Heavy Coughing 1 Week Post Op, What Can I Do? (photo)
I recently had a Circumferential Abdominoplasty Feb 29th. About 8-10 days after (I can't remember exactly), I choked on some water while sitting up. I coughed pretty hard a few times and felt a burning sensation in my lower abdomen (right above the incision line). Since then, the area has been swollen, almost bulging out. There was no swelling/bulging right after surgery. I am draining fluid still, and my doctor couldn't get any fluid with a syringe in the area. I am worried. (23 year old male).
