Kati,
I had a tummy tuck 4 months ago.
I, too, have similar problems as you have explained. I feel my tummy tuck is way too tight. I wonder if the tummy tuck can affect my intestines? I have been dealing with bloating, and never ending cycle of diarrhea and constipation. I do not have a sense of well being. A half hour after i eat anything, it passes right through me. I asked my surgeon if the tummy tuck can cause the symptoms i suffer from. He responded that the tummy tuck usually doesnt cause my symptoms. I am so frustrated. Have any advice?Thank you for sharing your story. It made me feel i am not alone.

I have similar issues. Bloating and constipation. TT a year ago. Only started after procedure. Constipation is bad. I have been trying to keep up with what foods make it worse. So glad to know I’m not crazy. I was starting to think so many other things. But my food is not digested the same as before. It has to be due to the procedure.

Hello everyone. I had my to done for my 50th B-Day. I have had constipation for about 6mo. I am 6mo post surgery. I have bloating and numbness. I don't know when I am going to have bowel movements as my normal urge and sensation are not the same. I just have a real sharp stabbing pain deep in my gut. I have the bad bloating too. I am still experiencing numbness to areas of my stomach, just above belly button to the incision site above my pubic area and in general center af abdominal cavity. I see my PS today. I hope to get some answers but he said same, not related to him. I went to improve my looks outside and left feeling bad inside.

Hello ladies! On July 12, 2018 I had a tummy tuck. I was 51 then and had diastasis pretty bad. Lots of people thought I was pregnant. The diastasis was high, above the belly button. Anyway, initially I was happy. My stomach looked flatter, I could wear more fitted tops, I looked way better. However, now as time has gone on I’ve noticed bloating. I’m rounder looking in the belly. In the mornings i seem to look my best but as the day goes on I bloat. A few months ago my plastic surgeon said that I had to either 1) lose weight, 2) exercise to strengthen muscles, or 3) try a colon cleanse. He also mentioned that it must be natural to me. In other words, the way that I am before the diastasis and surgery. After reading all of your posts I have come to realize that it’s NOT ME but rather the surgery did “something!” I don’t know how, or what but I’m very disappointed.
