Tummy tuck 4th day post op, burning, hot sensation

I have a burning hot sensation on the skin closest to my pubic area on my thigh. Don't remember having this yesterday. Is this normal?

The only person who should be addressing this concern is your surgeon at this point after surgery.

This could just be normal healing of nerves.  If you have skin changes that suggest infection though, you should follow up with your surgeon immediately.
