Swelling after TT

Hello and thanks for posting your experience. It's hard to fully understand what is going on based on your description. I would recommend speaking with your plastic surgeon or PCP about the swelling you are experiencing. You may document the degree of swelling with photographs before and after and measurements of the areas you have the most significant changes with.
Best wishes!

You need to schedule a visit with your primary physican

and take photos of your claims of a size 7 to a size 20... as I simply cannot appreciate that much of a change.  Your doctor will have to check you for many potential issues and only an exam and through history will help you find out what is happening.  You can also take circumferential measurements of your thighs, tummy, and arms to help document the changes you feel are happening.
