Now, if you are feeling pain and discomfort it would be important for you to visit your surgeon with all concerns ASAP. Best of luck to you and I hope that healing is able to continue well for you.
Swelling , some advices:
At this point (3 weeks post-po) the swelling and the pain are 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.

- It is impossible to tell you how you are healing without examining you.
- I strongly recommend that given your concerns, you arrange to be seen by your surgeon, not just the PA.
- The photo does not show abnormal swelling.
- Healing after such surgery is a process that takes time.
