I am 71 years old; I have a 8 inch diastasis recti in my abdomen. Should I be concerned with the pain?

It depends on your degree of pain
Make sure no other problems before surgery

In general, the perception of pain is more severe at a young age. As we age, pain is generally more well tolerated.
To be sure what is right for you, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
