Seroma Drainage Makes Me PASS OUT!
The tummy tuck procedure repaired muscle...
- 1 Jan 2010
The tummy tuck procedure repaired muscle separation and removed extra skin. I also got rid of tubular breasts by the addition of great implants! Hooray! Maybe I got a seroma because I had lots of lipo to my flanks and an extended Tummy Tuck?
I developed a seroma two weeks after surgery. It has been drained twice and is not infected. Each time, I get really woozy, dizzy, nauseous, and nearly pass out. I know I'm a whimp about this simple little drainage procedure. What can I do (or take) to get me through the next several drainages? I tried a valium and it didn't help in the least. (P.S. The pain aspect of the extended TT and BA was really not an issue for me, so I'm not always a whimp!)
Dr. Harvey Bock has both great experience and bedside manner. He comes highly rated by others in the area!
