I am sorry you had surgery.

stretching your abdominal muscles and massaging the area can help soften the scar tissue

best to stretch immediately after surgery

yoga and massage therapy can help as well.

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.
