I had a suture procedure for asian eyelids about two weeks ago. I thought the recovery would only take 7-10 days, but has taken much longer. After two weeks, both eyes are still swollen and one eye looks as swollen as the day of the surgery.
I iced the eye every 15 min for the first 3 days (excluding a few hours at night) and have applied a heat pack to my eyes for a couple of hours each day since day 4. I've been sleeping elevated since the operation and began taking over the counter motrin for the last 3 days.Is there something wrong?
