    Ab Surgery Recovery

    January 8, 2019, 7:24 pm

    Let me preface this question with I had laparoscopic surgery and had an unexpected 1 1/2" incision on my upper right abs.  I was told that they did not cut through the muscle but went between the muscle fibers.  Its been over a year and its a "soft spot" where it seems like the fat was removed.  Every time I do anything with abs (Beginner Work-out Program for Weight Loss) it feels weird and uncomfortable.  I am afraid that something adverse will happen even though my Doc says to start with light workouts.  

    My Question:

    Has anyone ever had this type of experience and does that part of your Ab muscle/body get stronger again... where it doesn't feel weird?  Or will I forever feel the muscle wall there and have an indentation?

     

    Gross Side Note: They found about 8+ golfball sized Gall Stones that they could not crush hence why they had to make a larger cut to get them out with the Gall Bladder that usually is paper-thin but mine was inflamed to about a 1/2". They also had to remove 4 smaller ones that were lodged in the duct with what they described medically as "black tar".  Heh

    @enygma I haven't had that experience before, but if your doctor has given you the go-ahead then it should be fine to start training your abs lightly again. Definitely start with body weight. It's probably like any injury or surgery - the first few times you go back to training things will feel slightly off, but it's probably a matter of adjusting to the changes in your body.

     

    The sounds terrible! But glad they got them out!
