How long until you feel normal again after surgery??

I had a tummy tuck done on March 22, 2016. I feel fine and have absolutely no regrets, but I'm just wondering how much longer it'll be until I feel "normal" again. My doctor did say it would take a year to fully heal, but I guess I just didn't expect to still feel so different this long after the surgery. My stomach still feels tight (some days it feels extremely tight and swollen right around my rib cage which I always find weird because it's nowhere near the incision). I still have a weird sensation throughout my entire stomach -- the best way I can describe it is that it feels somewhat numb. The last follow-up appointment I had was two months ago and my doctor said everything is healing perfectly. I was just wondering how much longer until I feel like I did before surgery and feel absolutely no effects from the procedure. Thanks!
