Re: question about swelling after surgery

It could be outside the time window where ice can help. I didn't have much of a lump or external inflammation (I did have a mild infection though).

I have a feeling, the larger it is, the longer it takes----but it really should go away over time on it's own. You can also try natural healing things---eat pineapple (the bromide helps healing) and drink lemon in water, that is a diuretic--people use those after all sorts of surgeries.

Hope you heal quickly!
