Back pain with deep breath after tummy tuck
There are several possibilities for the cause of your pain. It could be just muscle spasm and will resolve with time.There is another more ominous possibility that needs immediate evaluation and that is a pulmonary embolism that can be life threatening. This is unlikely, but you should see your surgeon right away. They will be able to help in any case.Good luck.
Lower back pain is very common after TT. It is usually caused by walking in a "hunched over" position. My patients have gotten a lot of relief by renting a walker. They can be rented at many pharmacies. Best of luck!
I no longer use drains, but if you go to a doctor who uses #drains, they usually stay in 3-5 days but may be required to remain in longer. It is hard to tell if something happened with the drain or its removal, but it may be best to contact your surgeon's office directly for advice on what may work best, or if it may likely be a good idea to see them in person for an evaluation. Best wishes to you!
