Full TT W/lipo 6 Months Ago, Results Okay, but Can't Play Sports Yet

Hi, I'm a 32 year old male who had a full abdominoplasty with liposuction about 6 months ago. (I lost a large amount of weight via diet+exercise back in college).

I feel okay and have gotten back to most of my activities, but still I find myself having to be extra careful in the gym, and still am not able to participate in sporting activities (tennis, frisbee, etc). My stamina is not the problem - it's that I can still feel my ab muscles sutured together and it restricts my range of motion uncomfortably, particularly with stretching. My surgeon keeps advising that it's normal and will go away with time, but I get the feeling he might be blowing me off at this point. Just wondering when (or if?) I will be able to get back to my full range of athletic activities as before the procedure? My impression before surgery was that I'd be back to my old self within a few months, but so far this is not the case!

I am only 7 weeks out from my surgery, but I have found--just in the last week--that gentle yoga has really helped me regain range of motion. I still feel some tightness where the sutures are in my abs & obliques, but slow stretching has helped immeasureably. My belly muscles feel warm & flexible afterwards for a couple of days. Maybe give that a try?
