How much will a tummy tuck repair cost?
I had a tummy tuck on Feb. 6 2013. I vomited all night and coughed then I was in a car accident April 4. 2 weeks later I went to get out of my H3 truck and fell to the ground landing on my back. Each time I went to the surgeon he said I am healing fine but I have a rounding at the top of my stomach now and have swelling almost every day. The chiropractor ordered CT scan and then they would like me to have an MRI. I am scared that I might have to go through this surgery again. Please help, what do you think?
I am so sorry to here about your adverse events. Yes, a complete examination combined with a CT scan or MRI may be of great assistance in determining exactly what needs to be done. After your tests consider a second option with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in corrective surgery.
