Is It Normal for Diastasis to Be Painful?
During the birth of my twins 2 years ago, I had a classic c section. I was told I had diastasis 5" from the top of my ribs all the way down. I've noticed I often get pain around the navel area. My stomach is swollen most days, and it feels like there is something pushing through where the abs are separated. Even to have a bowel movement I have to hold the muscles together and it causes pain. My dr. dismisses it and says talk to a ps. I'm 5'2", 120lb, so I guess it could be from extra weight.
