I had a tummy tuck and repair of an umbilical hernia one week ago. The drainage tubes were removed two days ago. My problem is the swelling and tightness. I understand it is early and most of the abdominal swelling will resolve itself (I hope!) but since surgery and increasingly I have had a hard pressure against my ribcage which at this point is so intense I feel as if I can't breathe. Is this kind of swelling reason for concern?
