Diastasis Recti: Part 6

Post Surgery Update....

It’s been 4.5 weeks since my diastasis repair (split abs) surgery and I can’t believe how many women are on this same journey. I’m just now starting to realize maybe this was all for the good...ok, I know everything happens for a reason but I didn’t know what that reason was I guess. So you know what’s crazy, in 4.5 weeks I haven’t had ONE ibs spasm, cramping, bloating, digestive ANYTHING! Now granted maybe it’s because my stomach is numb?? Or maybe a lot of my IBS problems were elevated with this! Because remember my abs were split which means my organs were falling forward and my belly would fill with air everytime I ate anything because it was WIDE OPEN...which resulted in looking bloated, but also feeing miserable. One time I had gas trapped in my chest and shoulder and thought I was having a heart attack and almost called 911! I literally couldn’t move on the floor or I would have!!!! Seriously. So it will be interesting to see how this plays with all my digestion issues.

Another WIN today was my 1st workout ⭐️ I did 25 minutes on the treadmill at 2.8 mph and it felt soooo good!!! Dr. is only letting me do the treadmill and bike for 4 weeks until my wound closes. On the flip side, my swelling is going down every day and I'm able to contract my abs for the first time in 4 YEARS!!!!! (Before I was prego with Skye).
