    Unhappy Protruding stomach after surgery

    My stomach, besides my belly button going sideways, is protruding and I look like I am 5 months pregnant. At 60 years old it is not a pretty site. Has anyone else experienced this after the surgery and has anyone had a tummy tuck AFTER the surgery.

    Hi Bonnie...

    Is the protrusion on both sides of the belly button?

    Dear Bonnie,

    I would have that checked out by a medical doctor...Are you in pain? If so, when does it hurt? Have you ever had abdominal surgery? This could be signs of a partial obstruction or hernia..let a doctor check it out...good luck
