I had an emergency section 3 weeks ago and really hoped to be back on my feet by now, but am still resting. When I was in hospital, the physiotherapist had a feel of my stomach and said that my stomach muscles had separated. I thought nothing of it, id just had a baby and assumed it would fix itself. Three weeks on, my belly still looks like I'm 4 or 5 months pregnant (I usually have a flat stomach and fairly good stomach muscles) and I just feel so unattractive. With a baby now it is hardly at the front of my mind, but I was googling stomach exercises to help and noticed that split stomach muscles is actually fairly serious and bad for you, especially causing chronic back pain in later life. Has anyone had any experience of this? I don't know of I am getting worked up over nothing. Thank you!
