Tummy tuck, have pain - is it a seroma?
Doctor Answers 2
Seroma after Tummy Tuck
No seromas in and of themselves don't cause pain. It is a painless collection of fluid. It is entirely normal to have pain 2 weeks out, especially as you increase your activity level. It is always best to bring your concerns to your surgeon, so he can examine you and determine if a seroma is present or not.

I appreciate your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
