Abdominal Wall Tear Symptoms
Is loosing weight initially associated with early symptom of ingenuial hernia? When abdominal wall weakens does blood test show anything?
Hernias: Hernias can protrude with weight loss. The fat that was plugging the opening may shrink and allow fat or abdominal organs to protrude. You should start with a physical exam to see if your hernia can be felt. A general surgeon or general internist can examine you. If it is small, an ultrasound or ct scan can image the hernia. Blood tests will not help. ...Read more
Usually nothing: The opening on the abdominal wall is small and just large enough for the colostomy to fit. The edges of the colostomy are then tacked down to the surrounding skin to seal the area. Rarely does anything go wrong. Occassionally there might be a paracolostomy hernia that then needs repair or a prolapse or dropping out of the colostomy itself that needs to be fixed. ...Read more

Muscular Pain: The abdominal wall consists of multiple muscle layers. Like anywhere on the body, a pulled muscle can cause significant, lingering pain. Since we use our core muscles for most activities, it can be difficult to rest these muscles. Pain from the abdominal wall can be difficult to distinguish from "internal" abdominal organ pain; muscular pain tends to be unrelated to food & worsened by activity. ...Read more
Are there exercises which strengthens the abdominal wall and which can help against developing a hernia in first place?
No: Many people with strong abdominal muscles get hernias, and many people with weaker muscles don't have hernias. There is most likely a genetic predisposition to hernia formation based on the types of connective tissue that any given individual has. Keep exercising though, its great for lots of other things! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abdominal symptoms: The tests of abdominal xray and "echo" of the back of the abdominal wall (probably abdominal ultrasound) are typically used to evaluate abdominal symptoms or concerns.

I coughed so hard i tore my abdominal wall and caused a hematoma.Two weeks later and still in a lot of pain. How long till pain goes away...
Strain: Severe strain with tearing of muscle fibers may take a little longer to heal. Rib fractures can also occur with hard coughing.
