I had hysterectomy/TT/Lipo36days ago. Dr recomm Lymp dr massage. after 2 sessions now I feel tighter & more swollen with or w/out the compression garment?? C-section area more swollen and incision is no longer straight line (droops down & puffy in center). Is this normal. The tx was very gentle however. Just concerned. Thank you.

Massage for lymphatic drainage is nonsense.
I doubt light massage will do any harm after surgery but the notion that swelling can be decreased by this maneuver is nonsense.
