Belly incision pain and itching

So the last two days my bellybutton incision and both other tummy incisions have started really hurting by 8pm. The only thing that makes it better is icing the area and putting pressure on it. (I used one of those abdominal bands that are supposed to make you sweat to lose weight over a tanktop). Both days I have taken it easy. Today I sat on the sofa and watched my husband clean the fishtank, then sat on the upstairs sofa and watched him clean the kitchen while i worked on crocheting hats for xmas gifts for a freinds children. At no point did I do anything I shouldn't have been doing. The only thing different between these days and other days has been I didn't lay down at all during the day for a while like I have other days. I am wondering is this my body telling me I need to lay down during the day for a bit? Also these same incisions are reddish and itchy...but the ER doc saturday said it was a reaction to sutures dissolving. ANyone delt with this before?

Re: Belly incision pain and itching

I'm itchy too... I'm hoping its just healing. It's not unbearable but I'm very aware. Mostly the belly button and one almost 2" incision to the left
