Swelled bad and not happy

bummed

I am feeling bummed I am so swelled and I dont like how things are looking. I just wanna cry today. Is this normal I am 18 days post op

definitely gonna need revision

My tt isnt healing right I have hematomas and a hernia I am so upset

day 4 in the hospital

I developed a abcess that became infected I am on iv antibioticsIit has been extremely painful. I do not wanna scare anyone who wants a tt but make sure yiu do your research on your surgeon also make sure your surgeon does all the proper testing and blood work before hand. This is where I made my mistake

struggling

The last three weeks have been a struggle. I was in thd hospital from august 30 until September 12 I am home on home health cRe with pic line antibiotics and a vaccum drain on my left side.While hospitalized I met a great team of plastic surgeons who are gonna do my revision I will post pics later aon today.
