TT pain without Muscle Repair?
tummy tuckliposuction

I had a full tummy tuck and breast reduction with liposuction to my hips/love handles on 5/1/13. My breasts are tender obviously but not bad, and haven't been at all, and I literally have no pain from my TT!? I have pain from my liposuction and that's the worst of it. I feel tight when I stand and that's about it from the tummy tuck but I can stand straight up if I want too. I am 22 years old and I freaked out when I heard I had no muscle repair and called my surgeon, but he assured me I didn't have any separation to correct. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it normal? I haven't taken my dressings off as I am not supposed to until this afternoon. One of the guys my boyfriend works with at the police department is also an OR nurse for my PS so he's coming over to help with my dressings.
