Tummy Tuck- Bear Hugged/picked Up, 4 Wks PO?

Was at a gathering and a friend picked me up, bear hug style, off my feet. I immediately reminded him, as he forgot about my surgery. My belly button is now burning a bit- Ok to wait until Monday if burning doesn't worsen? Could this quick incident hurt my muscle repair? bB is only sore spot. Thank you!

Unlikely that any damage occurred, but it is not much reassurance without the benefit of an exam. See your surgeon.

Best wishes.
