I wondered if this was normal or if I have done something to harm it. Ive had massage appointments and there is no pain during

Yes, it is common to have odd sensations and discomfort after this type of surgery. Usually it becomes less and less frequent and intense until it is gone, usually by 6-12 months.Increasing activity levels and make these somewhat worse for a time.

No cause for alarm.

Thanks, best wishes.


Sensory issues after a tummy tuck

Sensory changes are fairly normal after surgery and with time the sensation usually improves.  If concerned see your surgeon.
