I'm 9 days post op, still in my binder and was unable to stop a sneeze. I hurt bad! Above my belly button and to the right(at the edge of my rib cage. Should I be concerned? It's a saturdays so tracking down my Dr might not be easy =\

I doubt you did any damage.  Sneezing just really hurts after a tummy tuck.  It engages your core and that really smarts!

The next time you feel one coming on grab a pillow and press it into your tummy as you bend slightly at the waist.  That seems to lessen the pain when you sneeze.
