My whole abdomen was very tight for quite awhile. I could hardly eat anything without it being uncomfortable. I thought, great, I'll lose weight if that keeps up. Guess what? It stretches! LOL I couldn't stand straight for 3 weeks and it really hurt my back. I think it was about 4 weeks that the PS said I could start walking a little at a time. I don't really remember exactly. Once I did start, I made progress every day. I went back to work after 6 1/2 weeks.
It's still uncomfortable if I eat too much, so that's good.
The tissue will soften as time goes on. I was kind of disappointed at first with how it looked and felt, but it gets better. It felt very tight against my chest at first and was rather uncomfortable. Now I could actually shape it into a bra, but I'm still wearing sports bras. After I get the other one fixed, I'll go buy myself a sexy bra! LOL I'm anxious to start showing some cleavage again!!!
Do you have skin pain on your abdomen? I did for several months and that was miserable. It was from the tightness of being stretched and the nerves reacting.
Take it easy and don't over do anything.
