I too have the nerosis of the skin after my tummy tuck Im pretty upset, I no smoker no drinker,33 years old I worked hard to lose wt 70 lbs total worked out and ate good. I have three kids and was hoping to be back on my feet I am 4 weeks after and now I am gaining wt and I am hurting the only part that hurts is the nereosis. My PS sees me every week says its healing I put silvidine on it and wash it with wound wash and I tape gauze that feels like sand paper, no charges but my black part chips away and all I see is raw painful under Im sick of this! What is a wound vac? does it help I have a life I need to live and I am gaining wt sitting around on my butt. My PS said he would redo it if heals ugly that is somthing I have to think about I paid 8,000 would like to have my results good but I am scaredthe same thing might happen.
