Is it normal to feel muscle tightness 1 yr post op from a Tummy Tuck?
Compression Garment

This tightness is worse with exercise. It feels kind of like wearing spanx (girdle) that is too tight. My muscles still feel sore and is worse when I try to work out. My PS says I should be completely healed by now. I have consulted my MD to rule out other issues as well. Could I be a slow healer or is this how I will feel from now on?
