Stomach after double diep



does anyone who’s had a diep have a feeling like there is a brick or something heavy like that in the area where the flaps were removed. Is this more common with double dieps?

i feel so heavy in my lower tummy and am a bit swollen.

i have had 500 ml aspirated some weeks ago and it no longer feels like a hot water bottle but I still have this heavy feeling and my tummy seems to swell as the day goes on. I am 9 weeks post surgery.


thanks in advance of any replies

I’m 6 weeks post surgery for a DIEP flap and my tummy feels tight and uncomfortable. At home I usually sit with a small blanket which helps a bit. Hopefully things will improve for us soon.
