Still Not Walking Upright 4 Weeks After Tummy Tuck

I am 4-weeks post tummy tuck. I also had corrective surgery from a botched gall bladder surgery a few years ago. I am still not walking fully upright. Is this normal?

Ths is not normal. I would recommend that you consider physical therapy supervision and guidance of increased mobility and range of motion after reviewing this with your plastic surgeon.
