What Alternatives for Repair of Large Rectus Abd Diastasis, Male, 60y? Symptoms Worsened After Strengthening Upper Abd Muscles.
Repair of BIH left the diasthesis pushed up under high pressure. Now the pressure exerted on upper abd organs is becoming a significant problem. Abd wall muscles have been rehab'd with no good luck. Made symptoms worse. GERD increased with episodes of nausea and digestion problems due to pressure affects on peristalsis. To be honest, it is not an attractive physical attribute for an old athlete. Tummy tuck seems like a frivolous alternative for my situation but may be the only option.
