Is it normal to have stretching skin after a tummy tuck?

It has been 2 months since my tummy tuck and I currently still feel sore where the incision was made. When will this feeling go away? Whenever I eat, I feel my stomach skin stretching. I’m concerned that my stomach will go back to how it was! Is this normal?

It is normal to feel discomfort after a tummy tuck. This may take up to 6 to 8 months to fully go away. After eating, you stomach is expanding and pushing on your tight abdomen. This feeling will go away in 4 to 6 months.
