Am I really going to be this swollen for weeks? How can I help myself? (photo)

I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair 10 days ago. No lipo. Quilting sutures and drains for 48 hours. I had swelled quite considerably within 24 hours. It is uncomfortable and feel like when I was heavily pregnant! My left side is worse than my right. My PS saw me a couple of days ago and said there was no seroma. Do I just have to be patient? Can I do anything to help reduce the swelling?
