Hello All,

I had my surgery on Dec. 17th and initially the site was nice and flat except for my stitches. I thought I was healing well then noticed inflammation at the surgery site. It's puffy and feels warm to the touch. Not red though... I called the Doc's office and I have my first post op tomorrow so it will be looked at... Has anyone dealt with any kind of inflammation after surgery? If so, what was it and how was it taken care of...??? Thank you!!!
