I have suffered from lower abdominal pain for years. I have gone thru several colonoscopies and endoscopies, but no results were shown to cause my pain. I finally decided to discuss my chronic pain with my internist and when I told him of my stomach operation, gallbladder, appendix and finally a tummy tuck, he began to nod. Indeed the tummy tuck could be the cause of my pain all these years. The damaged nerves were being covered by a healing process, this in turn was causing my chronic pain to my lower pelvic area. Now I need to discover what I can do to relieve the pain.

Your condition sounds similar to that of another woman who wrote in.

You can find what she had to say here.. Pain In Stomach 1 Year After Tummy Tuck.

She was able to get some relief from a type of muscle freezing procedure and she is going back to her surgeon to see if it can be corrected surgically.

Hope the information is helpful.

Good luck,
