i had abdominoplasty 4 years ago and have had skin pain ever since. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and fm. Abdominoplasty done in 2006 and have gained 20 pounds. I have terrible skin pain feeling as though my skin is being pulled off my body in all areas where lipo was done. This pain started immediatly after surgery but admittedly has increased with weight gain. I have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight and am in pain most of the time. It helps to wear compression garment but I can't wear it 24/7. Is there anything I can do, and what is causing this?
