On Aug 3 2011, I had abdominalplasty done. The incision went from hip to hip, an from I between my breasts down to my pubic area. 9 pounds of skin was removed due to a 160 pounds weight loss. The end product looks great however, my abdomen burns every day, as if it was in a "crunch" position.
Please note that my six pack muscles were stitched together. My family dr has put me on neurontin and ultram which helps but it is annoying to wake up in the morning with burning pain. At times it hurts so bad that I break out into a sweat. I wonder if I had made a wrong decision or maybe if I would have told my doc not touch touch my abdomen muscles, I would be ok.
