How Can I Rebuild My Abdominal Muscles After A Splenectomy
Exercise: Usually after you have healed, gradual return to full activities and exercises will usually improve your abdominal muscles. Walking, bicycling or swimming are good to start. Once your doctor approves, regular abdominal exercises and time will usually result in full return to normal.See 1 more doctor answer
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
If someone had a muscle disorder, could it make the abdominal muscles weak enough to have hernias and tears?
Acquired, congenital: Hernias are from acquired conditions or congenital meaning you were born with it. Muscle disorders are rare while hernias are common. See a doctor first to determine if a hernia is really present and not just weakness of the muscle. A muscle weakness can be strengthened by exercise. A hernia can be fixed by surgery. Hope this helps.
Sharp pain 4 inches directly below my belly button. It only hurts when I use my abdominal muscles. Don't remember doing anything to pull a muscle.
May need exam: Pain probably from strain and if it does not go away you need to be examined
Do I have abdominal muscle strain or hernia? I had pain when I was workingout my abs and its been almost 3 weeks now. Pain is better but still there.
Lower right side abdominal pain since my splenectomy has increased more and they did not remove my appendix should I be worried?
29 yo female with two aneurysms in my splenic artery. Short of breath and pain in upper left abdominal area. Chance of rupture? Elective splenectomy?
Aneurysms: I believe your vascular surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and advise you as there may be no need to operate on these aneurysms unless they reach a certain size. I wouldn't expect shortness of breath to be related to the aneurysms unless they're leaking blood, but the left upper abdominal discomfort is of concern and the vascular surgeon's opinion about this is very important.
Sharp pain on r. Side and sometimes l. In lower abdomen/groin when cough, sneeze, stretch. Ct normal. Laproscopic splenectomy in june 2013?
Spot training: Different abdominal exercises will focus some on different parts of the abdomen but best just to do a complete abdominal work out which will hit all areas. One of my favorites is the p90x ab ripper, only takes about 15 min and I try to do this 3 days per week. Great workout.
Resistance training: There are a variety of exercises that will do this better than endless situps or crunches. I'm especially fond of cable crunches. Three sets of 10 reps each of the maximum weight you can handle. Ab muscles you can do daily.
Exercise: A strong abdominal program and core exercises will build lower abdominal strength and "muscles." I would suggest working with a personal trainer but specifically those exercises that bring the legs up while keeping the pelvis stable will work on the lower abs (ie seated leg raises or alternating leg raises.).
Great question: You can do other exercises which can strengthen your abs, there is a jennifer anniston ab exercise video on you tube, which is a great indirect way to strengthen your ab.
Tried scissors?: Workouts that incorporate hip flexion, such as leg lifts, scissors, pulse-ups work the lower abs. Don't forget about your obliques which contribute to your 'v' as well.
It depends: A maylard incision actually transects the anterior rectus abdominus muscles when making a "bikini" type incision. If the surgeon repairs the muscles and layers of the incision properly, it could be anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks to fully heal and if not more time.
Nothing: A certain degree of assymetry is the rule rather than the exception. Chances are this is completely normal.
