Thought I was prepared but so much about this has been surprising. Lay still and there is no pain...move and it's off the chart so you just lay still. Abdomen feels SO a snare drum...must stay bent forward and that causes lower back to ache. This was seriously uncomfortable.

Ah yes the first week post tummy tuck is most definitely a character building experience. More little aches & pains than one can imagine. Kimmers is right - just take care & hang on. It does get better!
