| | Problems 9 days after lipo
I had lipo on my upper arms on the 20th of May. After the orocedure, my right incision (at the elbow) did not drain much at all, while the right one did. Not only did the right one seem to have issues darining, but my right hand has been swollen since the 21st.
I went to my 1 week follow-up on May 26th and told the doctor (which wasn't my original surgeon, because he is out of town) that my hand has been numb and I have had issues draining, but he didn't address the issue at all.
That night, about 7 minutes after wrapping my arms, my right arm finally started draining. However. it was very sudden and it drained a LOT within about ten minutes. When the flow finally slowed, I decided to tape a mentrual pad to my arm. When I woke up in the morning, the pad was SOAKED, but It was no longer draining like crazy. Then, it did it again Fridat night, but it did not happen last night.
At first, I thought this must be really good, but today my arm is hard, burning worse than I could have imagined, and the incision looks almost healed! I can't move it or even touch it without it feeling like it's on fire!
My left arm is perfectly fine, but my right arm is killing me! I am currently lying down, arm elevated, with an ice pack.
I know the obvious thing to do would be to call my doctor, but is this AT ALL normal?
