Post TT and LIPO - Back Pain and Standing

This is my 6th day post op...I saw my ps on day 4 he says for me to keep the drain in over the weekend...but I can start to stand up straight as much as my body allows (it seems like hardly none)...and then my lower back is the WORST (ache) but my ps said that is because I've been walking slumped over..I know each person is different...I guess my question is how long does this last?

About 1 more week of recovery

Your body mechanics are trying to get back in sync. You probably have about one more week of this and then it likely won't be an issue.
