I had a Tummy Tuck on 02/16/10 and It is almost 100% healed, but I am getting EXTREME pain about an inch out from my hip. I believe a stitch desolved and the skin is back to normal but not sure! What else could be causing the pain?

pain after tummy tuck - I have horrible pain recently and pain killers seems like not working. How long it would last generally?


Hi, I am 11 days post full tummy tuck with some hip lipo: severve back pain. Wondering if it is normal to still have severe back pain 11 days after a full tummy tuck with lipo on hips? When I finally have a "good" hour or so and have some energy I have a hard time walking for more than a minute or two because my back hurts so very much. It's also difficult to sit up for more than a minute or two or stand to take a shower without sitting down to rest. Is this normal? When can I hope for relief or is there anything I can do?


I had a tummy tuck 2 1/2 weeks ago. I cannot stay on my feet very long before I am in alot of pain. Is this normal for this length of time afterwards. I had some muscle tightening and new belly button along with hernia repair. I am frustrated and feel like I will never feel good again...
