Today I keep getting a recurring sharp pain on my right side. Should I be worried or is this normal?

I appreciate your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Sharp Pain on Right Side
Mild, shooting pains which come and go can be normal after Tummy Tuck for many months as it does take a long time for nerves to repair. If you feel increasing or concerning pain, let your Plastic Surgeon know.
All the best
