Muscle Spasms after Tummy Tuck
Dear RPMsMom, Thank you for your question! I agree, I cannot be certain why this is occurring. If patients have muscle spasms after abdominoplasties we typically recommend a muscle relaxant or benzodiazepine such as Valium. 5 mg before bed may be enough to minimize your discomfort and help you to sleep through the night. Good luck!
Problems after Tummy Tuck
It sounds like the nerve to the abdominal muscles is irritated for some reason.I'm not sure why this is happening either, but a muscle relaxant before bed may be helpful to try. Most likely as the healing progresses the symptoms will go away.
