    Had surgery!

    Thank you so much for your response.

    I know I have the diastasis but that was one of my questions if it didn’t show on the CT scan or MRI or during the surgery is that something I can still fix? It doesn’t cause pain but instability, prolapse and it caused the hernia. Fixing the hernia which was “tiny” immediately relieved excruciating pressure and pain in my abdomen and pelvis. I can stand a little longer now but if I stand too long my abs pull apart my belly button stretches into a horizontal line and I feel a “tearing” at my hernia site and prolapse/ pressure in the gap where my vagina rectum and pelvic floor meet…it actually starts to prolapse down and i have to shuffle walk. All different but connected problems.

    I can’t use my abs at all I use my arms to roll over in bed etc…

    I’m frustrated but hopeful because of how much hernia surgery helped. I didn’t even need pain meds my hernia hurt more than surgery did.

    Laparoscopic diastasis surgery? Tummy tuck? Too dangerous after just having surgery? Just want to be able to walk again.
