Customer Question
I had a tummy tuck...
I had a tummy tuck 8 weeks ago.. I had a stabbing pain in my abdominal before it but only a sudden stab that would last less than 1 second.. I have had a pain since. I could have it twice in one day or not have it for 1 week and forget about it, it's usually if I turn suddenly, if i tense and yesterday as I bent to put shoes on. After I have the pain if I try to touch the area to recreate it I can't find it..

This is Dr. David

the pain most likely is due to scar tissue within the abdomen from the tummy tuck 8 weeks ago.

you should talk to your plastic surgeon about this pain.

most likely it is post surgery scar tissue pain after the procedure.

are your bowel movements normal?

have you followed up with your surgeon after the tummy tuck?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
