Is thigh pain normal after an abdominoplasty? What could be the cause?
Thank you for sharing your question and photograph and I am sorry to hear of your recovery issues. Thigh pain is not a routine complaint after a tummy tuck surgery and based on your narrative you may have a condition termed meralgia paresthetica where a nerve has become irritated causing your current symptoms. Ask to be evaluated by your surgeon for this condition so that treatment can be recommended. Best wishes.
Sounds like ilioinguinal nerve entrapment pain. Nerve blocks can be made permanent you should see a pain specialist who may be able to obliterate the nerve pain.
