I am 10wks s/p panniculectomy, lipo of abdomen,flanks, and waist still swollen. Is this normal? (Photo)

I am 10wks s/p panniculectomy, lipo of abdomen,flanks, and waist still with a great deal of swelling (abdomen and upper thighs)especially toward the end of my 9-5 day.I also still have harden areas on the sides of my waist that come and go as well is this normal. What can I do to decrease the swelling on a permanent basis? I am very happy with the results thus far but the swelling and numbness (I am numb from my upper abdomen to the top of my hips) is quite bothersome.
