What causes pain on the surgical line of tummy tuck?

i had a tummy tuck 2 yrs ago and my skin died which made me have to use gauze and pack it for over a yr. after the scar was smaller my plastic surgeon did a revision. I have been in pain ever since the 1st surgery. It hurts all the time. I also get muscle spasms and every time I eat my stomach bloats like a basketball. I never had these symptoms of bloating until after the tummy tuck. Could something have went wrong in surgery for me to have these symptoms?

Dr. Hanif warmly welcomes you!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I want to assure, I will take care all of your medical concerns.

It happens as a complication of tummy tuck and usually the surgeon discusses it with the patient prior to surgery.

The pain on scar can be reduced to almost zero by applying Capsaicin cream and Dermarest cream, both to apply on the scar.

Take Omeprazole before every meal to help for the bloating issues.
