I had my Fallopian tubes removed, could this procedure possibly have affected my Tummy tuck procedure? (photo)

Sorry you had these troubles. Your surgery on your tubes was done using a laparoscope. When this is done a large amount of air is pumped into the abdomen so the surgeon can see what he is doing. You probably also have swelling due to the nature of the ruptured fallopian tube and ectopic pregnancy. Your tummy tuck should not be permanently affected in any way by your recent surgery, and the swelling should resolve in time.
