How Long After Liposuction Am I at Risk for Pulmonary Edema or Embolism?
I am a very healthy 30 year old female. Six days ago, I had liposuction of the calves and ankles. I have been moving around a lot at work. When at home, I rest but still walk around regularly. In the last couple of days, I have had some very mild upper back pain and upper chest discomfort. It feels better when I lie down flat but while standing it bothers me. I not having trouble breathing and haven't been coughing but the discomfort is making me nervous. Am I at risk still for blood clots?
