Almost two weeks ago I had brain surgery that involved having to cut from mid head down my entire neck. Cutting through all the muscles and whatever caused lots of swelling in my neck so I now look like I have a double chin all the time. How can I bring it down fast its still here after two weeks! I'm going crazy
There are a few things you can take, but I would contact your surgeon for their input. Most anti inflammatories or ibuprofen will help. What I did after my neck surgery was used lots of ICE or frozen bags of veggies around the surgical area. Not heat it will cause more swelling. No more then 15-20 minutes at a time for the ice.
Best wishes on a speedy recovery.
