Having difficulty taking deep breaths at times. I've already ruled out blood clot. Is this normal after tummy tuck?

There are other causes of shortness of breath after surgery which must be assessed. You have already ruled out a PE. Call your PS and let him know of your concerns. Your PS will evaluate worrisome causes of difficulty breathing.
I hope this helps.
