Tummy Tuck problems

Hi,

I had a Tummy Tuck in July and the last week l have started to swell really bad with fluid retention and also my scar his weeping on my left side.  Until now l was healing really well with no problems at all.  Is this normal??

Please advise as lm getting myself rather worried about it. I have been back to hospital but they didnt seem to listen as it was cosmetic so just put me on antibiotics and sent me home.

Thank you

This is quite unusual at two months post tummy tuck.  You need to be evaluated by your plastic surgeon.
