Post op help and advice

I recently went had gynecomatia and liposuction around the abs. Since waking up I have been experiencing numbness in thumb, bottom of palm and tingling around the wrist.

The doctor said that it's most probably the pressure from the compression garment, however I still need to wear this and he suggested not wearing it so tight. So I havent been wearing the compression garment very tight for the past 2 days but I am still experiencing the same problem.

Any suggestions/ advice?

It sounds like one of the arteries supplying blood to the arm might be cutting off the circulation. Is your vest cutting into your armpit? If so it could be cutting off your brachial artery which supplies most of your blood to your hand. Not a doctor, but that's my best guess. Good luck!
