Had laparoscopic abdominal surgery for insulinoma tumor. Abdominal tension after being hit on the stomach. Is this due to adhesions?

Hello my name is Brandon. I had laproscopic abdominal surgery for an insulinoma tumor 7/21/2011. The recovery went well and I was able to continue my running as I am an avid runner. I avoided lifting and physical contact. After a party in November where I was hit (lightly) in the stomach and slept on my stomach I have experienced abdominal tension when running and standing. CT, colonscopy, and endoscopy inconclusive tests taken in February. Was told to try abdominal exercises and stretches. Those did not help, and followed up with massage therapy which is said to help adhesions. Tension has stayed. Are these adhesions? Would adhesions have arisen after one night? Any reason for this pain which has not gotten any better since November?

If CT, Colonoscopy and Endoscopy are normal it means there is a very small likelihood and anatomical issue. Yes adhesions do form after any sort of surgery and no adhesions do not form in a day (except immediately after surgery when they form). Your GP/Surgeon would be the best person to examine you and suggest a relief.
Take care
