It's difficult to determine your problem as it is very detailed and somewhat atypical.  You should consult with your board certified plastic surgeon.  He'd be glad to help.

Central tightness of your abdomen is a common feeling because often the muscle diastasis is repaired in this region. As for pain in the side, I am not sure. An exam would be helpful, you should probably run it by your doctor.
