  • If you do too much moving, twisting, turning, bending, stooping, basically anything that stretches your stomach muscles, it will pull all that scar tissue. I have the same issue with the scars that are above my belly button and right below my diaphragm, that came from hernia surgery when I was 7. Both kinds of scars still bother me if I turn too fast, or the wrong way.... Once you get the scar tissue all stretched out it should go away. My son is 6 months old, and that kind of pain has pretty much gone away, you just have to be careful how you move.
