3 days post op out of tummy tuck. 800 cc augment. Massive weightloss. Tummy tuck-other than feeling digestion rarely hurts-gurgling from stomach and going to bathroom on day 3.The implants are killing me. One is ridding higher than the other-doc says everything is fine and the muscle is just stretching to accomodate the large implant. 3 days post op-2 drains. I've been walking and moving my legs when I sit to avoid blood clots. What else can I do to avoid clots-esp. on the ridehome/drop implant?
