Done tummy tuck with muscle tightening. Ball in abdomen, painful to bend

I had a tummy tuck with muscle tightened about 2 months ago. For the past three weeks I noticed a pea size ball on my upper left adbomen about 2 below my left breast . It gives me pain when I bend over and specially after I eat. I saw my surgeon about a week ago and he says that is probably a loose stitch . The pain feels as if something (pea size ball) sharp is cutting thru my skin. Please help!!

Hi and welcome to HCM

Pea size ball on my upper left adbomen could be due to muscle spasm or tight muscle.Doing hot fomatation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful. You can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation.
If you don't find any relief with the above measures, a detailed clinical examination along with appropriate investigations are needed to establish a diagnosis.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
