Abdominoplasty 1.5 yrs later It's been sometime now since my surgery and I am still in a lot of discomfort from sternum to pelvis. I had a seroma develop right after the surgery (2nd week) and had been dealing with it up to the 11 month post surgical. The seroma had changed to a bursa, Nothing has been done about it. In the AM as soon as I get out of bed the rib cage/abs area is level and ideal. Within 3 hrs swelling begins from top of abs to pelvis. By end of day I lay down to deflate. I am always hurting, Why is this so ?

You may want to discuss this with your surgeon. It could be a neuroma which could benefit frob excision.
