6 years post op pain

6 years post op pain

Postby Cindy25 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 2:34 pm

I had my tummy tuck done about 6 years ago and healed very well. I have little to no feeling from the scar up to my belly button, all over my abdomen. Over the years I would occasionally feel a twitch of pain here and there and chalked it up to the nerves misfiring. But lately I have been having a pulling sensation with pain. It has only happened a few times in the past couple weeks, but I'd like to know what it could be. When I stand up it feels like a very tight pulling all across my belly along my scar line. It almost feels like I'm tearing open on the inside even though that's impossible. Any ideas? I've recently started Fasciablasting too...maybe this is from breaking down the scar tissue?

Sounds like you may have developed some scar tissue there, which is common. Try massaging in a circular motion at home in those areas or going to a massage therapist as your budget permits. You can request a deep tissue massage to help break up that scar tissue. I had the same problem. Scar tissue can be painful depending on where it develops. I did massages for a month, starting with 2 a week and reducing them as it started getting better and I no longer have those issues. Good luck! :)
