i have been reading the experiences of others and wanted to join this community so I could have people to talk to who understood my experiences and could offer their advice and support. I had a Tt w/ lipo on Dec 19, 2012. My drain is still in and my entire core is swollen (though the "apron" of skin which previously sat in my lap is gone). I have read a lot of comments about swelling and how long it is anticipated to last. I am wondering if the swelling will increase when the drain is removed. Has anyone had that experience?
