I had my TT done 4.5 wks ago along with hernia repair (above belly button). Took me almost 3 wks for a fully straight standing position. Then I started feeling better, swelling decreased and it was not too painful anymore. About 5 days ago I started feeling a weird tweezing like movement inside, and I thought "I pulled a stitch". I have felt it a few times now, always on same spot. Today it is swollen again and a bit painful.
Is it normal or should I go back?

-Most likely everything will end up being just fine, but it's always a good idea to discuss your concerns with the plastic surgeon who performed your operation.
-He/she is really in the best position to be able to carefully examine you and reassure you.
