Im now 4 weeks post op after having a tummy tuck and at week 2 I thought I just had excessive swelling but it was a large hematoma. 600ml was drained and instantly the size and full feeling went down. Less than a week later I had to go back for another drain and 340mls was removed.

Im feeling the same fullness now and I'm wondering how long this is going to go on for? After the first draining my surgeon said that should be the end of it, after the second time he said I may need draining again. 

I know a hematoma isn't normal but is this the normal way of treating it? It's really starting to worry me.

Any advice would be appreciated.
