I'm 17 days post. Garment hurts?

2 weeks post op, some advices:
At this point (2 weeks post-po) the swelling is normal.
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.

Your garments should not be painful. If they are, I recommend you discuss with your surgeon the utility of their use. Maybe he/she could transition you to Spanx or another comparable compression garment. Best of luck.

Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear you are having discomfort with your garment. My first recommendation would be to contact your surgeon immediately and have him give you a full body examination. Without examining you it is hard to determine what is causing this discomfort. It could be a couple different reasons, wrong size garment, skin irritation is occurring from the friction between the garment and your skin, you may have developed an allergic reaction or there could be potential for infection. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your recovery!
