Bruising and swelling
Thank you for your question. Bruising and swelling are common after surgery and Bromelain and Arnica can help speed the bruises to resolve quicker. Chills can be a sign of infection or dehydration. I recommend that you see your surgeon for an in person exam ASAP to be safe.
Tummy tuck recovery
Bruising and swelling are common after the procedures that you've had. Arnica and Bromelain are useful supplements in your recovery. It is always safest to first check with your surgeon before taking any new medications and supplements in combination with your current medication regimen.
