It is a long recovery, you're right! I kinda' just thought it would be quicker, too. I'm 3 mos, and still swell weirdly in patches. Over it!

Thanks! And it won't be long before you can exercise how you want. I'm a little over 3 months, and I haven't done any sit ups or crunches because I've heard that I could herniate the belly button again. But I walk everywhere and I've been trying to do leg and butt exercises and so far so good. I really didn't do much of anything until 11 or 12 weeks because my belly still felt funny. I'm lazy, lol!

Same here I'm walking everywhere and doing leg lifts and my arms with weights(5) pounds .I stopped smoking for the surgery and haven't gone back yet ..but being inactive is making me think of them more .but doubt I will go back to smoking. I return to work soon ..I work at the local ymca ...I will post some of my personal b4 pictures and afters ..the ones on this site were done by a professional

Hi! I can relate to some pain like you are describing. A few weeks after my surgery I walked through a doorway and thought the next step was level ground-but I took a step and it was like missing a stair. As soon as all my weight slammed on my left side, I felt a Bee sting feeling beside my BB and it was sore for a few days. Since it wasn't in the middle of my tummy I didn't worry about it (figured I hadn't ripped stitches). So maybe you pulled your muscle? Is it any better now?
