I had surgery the 1st.. wk. of Oct. 08. The next morning I vomitted and had my tummy checked Dr. and assistant told me there were no problems. A wk. later I return to dr. and tape on incision was removed and I was oosing above the pubic area which I know no is called an " inverted T " (small area and I am healing poorly) and told to apply antibaterial jel and keep the area moist. 10 wks. later I was told I might need a couple of stiches, but I have to wait a few more wks. for the area to dry, this is the skin of the old belly buttom .
Also I had coughed a couple of times and it caused discomfort on my stomach and I touch and feel 2 lumps, below my breastline I have a sml. one and below that I have a bigger one about an inch in size right above the new belly button. This is 12 wks. after surgery and I am still swollen and still cannot close the zipper on my pants.
Can someone tell me what these lumps might be and will they go away?

I had inverted T tummy tuck 13 months ago. Inverted T area started oozing and would not heal for a couple of months. I had some internal sutures removed and I still swell after I start walking. Dr. says I should have another tummytuck to fix problem (possibly torned muscles), Maybe due to vomiting a few days after TT.

No pros, all cons as above.I have been getting hot flashes for about 5 yrs. now. Is it true that hormonal changes make me a bad canidate for tummytuck? -- Updated on Nov 26, 2009: I need to redo TT due to swelling after 14 months, spitting out stickes as per dr. I am still going thru menopause with hot flashes, Is it safe to have TT while having hot flashes? -- Updated on Dec 5, 2009: 4months after TT, PS sent me to an MD.,F.A.C.S. and he removed a few stickes wkly (I was told I was spitting out stickes). I was supposed to feel better after, but I am not. It is 14months after and stomach is still swollen and gets worse after walking. Is it possible that after 2 days post TT I vomited and I could have ripped stiches or muscles? The stomach is very sensitive to touch? PS wants to redue TT. Thank you.
Was not told about inverted T. and incision should have been looked at next day.
