Lost 135lbs from gastric bypass surgery .Surgery was 7/28/09, with all the weight loss, had skin and a lot of thickness around my belly. Tummy tuck approved by the insurance but not the laser lypo, was extremely nervous up through the date of surgery June 24th. Only four days out and feeling great!

Ok,mild set back..need help.went to surgeon yesterday,was not able to have either drain come out,but no infection,he remived all the padding and bandaging with the dried up blood on it,said come back friday to get both drains removed and stitches out of my new belly button,but I am having pain..a considerable amount of pain on my right side from the drain site and down on the top of my right backside thigh area .still very swollen and thick at the bottom.I know the swelling will go down but how long does it take for the funny numbness I felt when I touched my stomach to go away.it freaked me out.
