5 Week Post-Op Tummy Tuck: Lifting Causes Pain
I had a tummy tuck, umbilical hernia and abdominal muscle repair done 5 weeks ago. I was feeling better every day and started resuming many of my normal activities such as laundry, vacuum, groceries, etc. I then lifted our 20 pound dog while I was sitting in a chair and placed him on my lap. Since then, I have felt more pain in my stomach muscle area and the incision. I am quite worried that I may have caused damage to my muscle repair/incision, or would these be safe after 5 weeks? Thanks.
