Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Will a Possible Stitched Nerve from a Tummy Tuck Get Better?
I had corrective surgery done on a tummy tuck where all the Dr had to do was tighten more skin and move my scar down lower. He thinks he stitched a nerve because my leg is numb and I have a burning sensation going down my leg and very intense if I walk without a limp and walk upright. He says this should go away as the stitches dissolve. I am a runner, doing 5k's, triathlons, and weight train at a gym. I can't have this be permanent! Will this go away?
Post tummy tuck nerve pain.
It will likely go away
