Im in the recovery period rite now i wish i had found this site before. I had a mini tummy tuck along with lipo of the flanks hips and a little on the inner thighs. Rite now im 2 weeks and 4 days post op i feel a little lost. I went into surgery thinking by two weeks post i would be swollen but able to do most of my daily activities and care for my children. I had my drains taken out a week post op which my doctor never had me measure at all also the color stayed dark red and thick the entire time they were in, after removing them i developed a seroma im assuming thats what it is after my research because my doctor still has not actually called it anything.... anywho i had it drained the first time and i believe it was 250cc while they were draining it i fainted which was very scary for me since its only happened one other time in my life my doctor told me it was normal and that it happens often i beleived him .....at my next appt (2 days later) i had fluid again the nurse drained all of the fluid which ended up being about 150cc which i think im happy about since through my research ive found as long as its going down there should be nothing to worry about after the nurse finished draining it the doctor came in and injected something into the seroma not sure what it was but made my stomach feel as though it was going to burst open and a burning sensation the second he injected it i once again fainted.
After they got me back to somewhat normal he stuck the needle back in and drained the fluid he injected still leaving my stomach with a burning sensation....i go home after the appt not knowing what to think at this point my stomach is killing me very sensitive to touch and he has me wearing 2 compression garments at this point so im very uncomftorable he also put me on bed rest so i am going out of my mind from sitting and doing absolutely nothing everyday......2 days later go back in to the doctor he examines me and there is fluid but definetely not as much as before (still noticable but less) so he says were not going to do anything were gonna leave it and he wants to see me again on mon (its fri now) i questioned him about not draining it since i felt like there was still to much fluid to just leave alone after thinking he agreed we should drain it i feel as though there scared to drain me because i keep fainting but i want this thing to be gone whatever it takes... so the drained 80cc out this time and sent me home now its the weekend they still have me on bed rest and i can already see there is more fluid probably about the same as friday maybe a little more but not much im feeling very depressed like this recovery is never going to be done im going crazy doing nothing and feeling a little weird that i have to be on bed rest its making my legs and lipo areas swell worse then they were i dont know what to do at this point i feel like some of this is not normal im just lost and sad at this point anyone with helpfull info please post a comment i would love to hear if anyone else has had any of this happen....
