Tummy Tuck Numbness Is Wearing Off And Starting To Have Pain
The following post from our forum is from a woman who had a tummy tuck one week ago and is not starting to have pain and soreness around the incision area. Her numbness is starting to wear off.
I like you have had slim to no pain.... Thank god. I
had a tummy tuck done a week ago. Today is day 7.
I'm going in today to hopefully remove my drains. I
have drained less than 25 cc for two days
straight... I'm excited these drains are annoying!
Anyway... I'm a bit concerned though. Last night... Night 6. I started feeling a bit of soreness around the incision area... I coughed a few times during the day and laughed as well. This morning day 7, I also woke up feeling soreness... I thought I was doing well and now out of nowhere I have this soreness especially around my groin area.
I'm kind of freaking out here because I've been using Johnson and Johnson's baby soap to shower and not antibacterial as suggested because I didn't have any.. Which I guess is no excuse!! I finished my Rx of antibiotics 2 days ago. Could I possibly be developing an infection? It doesn't make sense to develop this pain out of nowhere!! All I could possibly think is happening is that I'm getting my sensation back. And that's why its a bit more painful? What do you think??
Can you please email me back.
I have to work today (from home) before my appointment and I can't even think straight...
