What causes an oddly shaped enlarged stomach after titanium mesh placement?

I had breast cancer and had a double mastectomy, I had a tram flap for reconstructive surgery, and they used tituium mesh in my stomack because they used my stomack muscle for my breasts. Well my stomack used to be flat, now it s huge and has a strange shape in the middle. Did the mesh let go. Does it need to be replaced.

Hello dear,welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I think you should wait for some time for your body to get used to it and get normal.
I think it is due to procedure and it will be flat soon.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
