Injury from banding on your garment?

It sounds as if you has some skin reaction or injury to your skin from your postop abdominal compression garment.  Please see your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.  Remember, compression garments should not hurt.  they just need to be snug yet comfortable.  Hope this helps.
