Four years ago I had a tummy tuck with Lipo. I had a seroma develop just above my navel and below my sternum.
Fluid drained out the area hardened and never went away. Now the area is so painful that I cannot bend forward. I can no longer do sit ups as it feels as though my abdominal tissue is tearing. I have to sit back at an angle to be comfortable.
Today I went to see a surgeon and he told me that NOTHING could be done except anti-inflammatory or have my Primary doctor send me to a pain specialist.
The area now is about the size of a tennis ball and the dr. said my CT scan showed "adhesions & inflammation".
I find it hard to believe that there is Nothing that can be done to fix this area. I dont want or like to take medicine. I refuse to settle for a lifetime of pills. Can anyone out there fix this?
Has anyone every developed a tennis ball size "hardened area after a seroma? If so.... could it be fixed?
