What helps with the swelling I’m on day 3 post tummy tuck?
Bowel moments, wearing your garment and low sodium for me
I heard Arnica!! I haven’t purchased any yet but will tomorrow and I’m one week post tummy tuck tomorrow
Arnica hurts like a hell you see.
Arnica hurts? I thought it was a pill?
Yea I thought Arnica was a pill too!!?? Hurts ??!! Oh no!!
I was very lucky and did not suffer to much with swelling but I used my compression garment 24 hours a day for 3 months as told to do by my PS….. I drank 2 litres of detox water which is lemon lime cucumber and mint… I also took Brags organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
The only time I ever get a swollen tummy is if I eat bad food or to much of a food…… Good luck it really does get better
Arnica is very good it’s Tiny Little pills.
Don’t move get rest nothing helps really except time oh and don’t sneeze! Well wishes xx
Do you have drains. ?
I didnt have drains, I had my surgery on 3/7. I am very swelled up, sometimes it feels like mu stomach is going to explode
You may have a seroma I rec see your surgeon in AM. You had a mini tuck or a tummy tuck ?
Tummy tuck,,, its only like that if I eat or drink alot,. I am going to try and see him today.
Then it’s just probably your intestines filling with food and fluid. That pushes abdominal wall out. Was The abdominal wall tightened ?
Did you see your doc ? You ok ?
I will see him on Wednesday. The pain went away after a couple of BM.
Good, Let me know
Garment makes it so much better a good nice tight one. I’m about 5 wks post op and I feel weird without wearing it. I’ve had one on 24-7 I have a collection of course. I got my first 3 from my surgeon and my other ones at Macy’s. Thick material and tight on the tummy.
Walmart has an arnica gel… dandolion tea works for swelling.
