Sore: Tears in the abdominal muscle layers can be seen in trauma, sports injury, and due to post surgical hernias from weight gain or strain. There will be a distinct area of soreness. Your surgeon can evaluate your complaints with a manual exam and imaging. Skeletal ligaments are attached to bone, and not a concern in the stomach wall.
