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 tight...like 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!
