I Had Abdominoplasty to Repair Diastasis Recti and Hernia, Why is My Naval Still Herniated? (photo)
I had abdominoplasty to repair severe diastasis recti and umbilical hernia after a twin pregnancy. My doctor and I both noticed that I had a minor umbilical hernia again about 4 weeks after the surgery. He felt that it would improve. Now, nearly a year after the surgery, it has gotten a little worse. He noted it at my last check-up a few weeks ago and I declined to have any further repair. I am now reconsidering. It is mildly painful. I worry the tear is spreading to my abdominal muscles.
