So with the neck disection how does the fluid that has built up drain back down so the swelling will be reduced. It seems like the fluid just moves from side to side and stays under my chin depending on which side I lay on. So if I lay on my left side during the night when I get up the left side of my face is severly swollen, after I sit in a chair for a while it goes back down to my chin area. How long has it taken for your swelling to get back to normal, I was cut from ear to ear.
