HelloI am a double board certified US doctor.In fact this type of pain can be from staph infection.In general it can be from infected surgical wounds.Or just from healing surgical wounds.This type of pain is typical for healing surgical wounds.A tummy tuck would not cause any major nerve damage.Make sure the staph bugs have been cultured and that she does not have MRSA.This requires special antibiotics.You can save time on the site: find me by request using my request link below, for prompt, accurate, safe and comprehensive answers.Please click a positive on this page at the top.
