Hello, and thank you in advance for your help. I started to regain sensation after an uneventful TT about nine weeks post op. at the same time, I feel a pain under the skin on my right side. What could this be? Will that pain be permanent?

Pain post tummy tuck.
Pain a few months following a tummy tuck is common. However, most of these pains should calm down and go away over time. Antiinflammatories are very beneficial. If the pain is worsening, a clinical examination to localize the pain is called for.

Pain after tummy tuck...
It's probably just post-surgical swelling related and normal. Occasionally a dissolving stitch can cause some pain. More rarely a "neuroma" can form on the end of nerve and give some pain after surgery. For now, I wouldn't worry. Let your surgeon know about it and take some Motrin on days or times of day that it tends to act up.
Hope this helps,
