Normal Swelling 12 Days Post TT? (photo)

I had my TT with MR 12 days ago. I still have my drains in and a few days ago I developed a little bit of an infection at my belly button. I started oozing and I got a fever. My PS drained some dark red liquid from my belly button and put a drain in it to get some more liquid out. He also put me on Cipro for now until he gets the cultures back. However, I am a little bit concerned about the amount of my swelling, I look pregnant and worse than before. Is this normal?

The posted photos are under exposed so very hard to see the swelling. But based upon your description your doctor sounds like he/she is treating you very well.
