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.
My Doctor: name not provided
Was not told about inverted T. and incision should have been looked at next day.
