I  am post op day 9 and feeling pretty good. The only complaint I have is the back pain. Is anyone experiencing back pain and if so when did it start to subside?

Back pain can be miserable after a tummy tuck.  Try a light massage and heat to the lower back.  Also try to lay flat and stretch a a slow pace.  The problem is from being hunched over for so long.  

Try laying on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the bed or floor.  At a slow pace lower your legs flat and then lay there for a couple of minutes.  It took me two weeks of this process to be able to lay flat for five minutes at a time.  

Slow process!
