Diastasis Recti: Part 1

Split Abs Surgery...Why Me?? Why Now?? Those are the questions that plummeted through my brain when I found out that I had diastasis recti. I’m on day 14 of my recovery and it has been HARD...I think the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. To even share hard!!! But do you know what helped me make the decision to do the surgery and know in my heart that somehow it would be ok??? Because a friend of mine shared her story and I found it!! Just at the right moment God wanted me to ❤️. What is diastasis recti? When your abs split (the linea alba) during pregnancy. Most of the time they go back together on their own...and sometimes they don’t. I didn’t know I had this for the past 2.5 yrs - had I known I most likely could’ve repaired it through therapy. More on that later.... Today I’m here on pure FAITH. I had a double surgery with 2 surgeons on the scariest day of my life!!! I prayed I was doing the right thing. The recovery following was indescribable...I have been in bed for 2 weeks, walking only with a walker, living upstairs bc I was petrified to attempt the stairs, screaming for pain meds on the highest dose....thank God my husband has literally been my angel through all of this! 🙏🏻 I don’t have to share this. In fact most would be scared to be judged. I have just gone through hell and back and I’m fighting for ME right now. I never intended to share the photo I took and had to block some of it out 😣 Moms I don’t know why this isn’t talked about more? So we can prevent it! Or in the event we have it. We can treat it before it gets out of hand! I feel compelled that is what I’m suppose to do with all this pain. I’ll be sharing more...thank you for your support as I do ❤️
