7 mos. after bilateral DIEP flap reconstruction, my abdomen continues to be puffy/swollen when I get up in the morning sometimes, after pilates, housework, walking, on my feet much of the day, and at the end of the day. Is this normal? is there anything I should/can do? My PS seems more focused on the results of the breasts!
