Weird feeling in belly button after tummy tuck.

It's been one year almost exactly since my tummy tuck. Aside from a small dog ear scar, it looks fine. The problem, is that I constantly have a very weird, unpleasant feeling in and around my belly button. It's hard to describe, but almost like a pulling - especially when I'm standing or laying down. Incredibly uncomfortable. Is this normal?

Weird feeling in belly button

No, what you are describing is not normal. Make an appointment with your surgeon to have this assessed in person.

Weird feeling by belly button

This is not normal and I wonder if you have maybe a hernia or a sensory nerve that is entrapped in this area.I would go back to your surgeon and have it checked out.
