I am 2 weeks and 3 days PO and have minimal swelling. I attribute it to strong green tea with raw honey each day. Try Really Raw Honey.
Glad to hear you are on the final stretch of recovery. What a scary thing to have happened to you. I was a smoker until October 1, 2012. I would not have quit except for my surgeon telling me he would not perform the surgery if I didn't...
I am 6 days po and had my first drain removed yesterday. itwas a tremendous relief. They seem to cause everyone the most pain. Happy healing
