Hi all: wondering how long the swelling near your incision lasted? I’m 10 days post op and the swelling has gone down overall, but it seems that the right side of my incision swells a bit then goes down w ice and nsaids then swells again. The incision itself looks good. My steri strips are still on. But the swelling makes driving and laying on my back just a bit uncomfortable.
I’ll call the surgeon in the morning to double check. Overall I feel ok. A bit stiff and fatigued if I’m more active during the day. I believe this is pretty common.
