I recently had a tummy tuck in February 2010 and now I'm six weeks out. The surgery was great and the the recovery was ok. I dealt with the drains and the inability to walk properly but was so happy with the results until now. Over the past few days I have now developed a bulge above my belly button. It is painful and ugly. I went to my Plastic surgeon who investigated thoroughly and stated he belives it is just swelling and that I need to relax and not be pushing myself so much. has anyone experienced increased swelling in the upper abdominal area 6 week post op?
