Board certified surgeon ended diastasis repair below ribs--is revision needed to eliminate pain/complete repair? (photo)
I'm petite (5'4", 110#), strong & athletic. Had complete diastasis recti occur in 1st of 3 pregnancies. With daily lower back pain, I sought a PS to repair the diastasis for his expertise in this procedure. I was cosmetically happy/functionally compromised and seeking functional benefit/reduced pain. Had a "full" TT to access all muscles but repair only completed to below ribs. Muscles now flare above repair and I have chronic pain at end of repair. Is redo needed to achieve desired strength?
