Pain post Tummy Tuck
Thanks for your inquiry and I’m sorry for your current situation. Generally after 5 months, things are pretty well-healed where coughing shouldn’t cause the stitches to pop but it can happen. Sometimes, patients can have very thin fascia that do not hold sutures well. And, when stitches are torn, a surgical revision is usually needed. I hope this helps.
