Can you regain abdominal muscle tone after cesarean twin delivery?

Muscle tone: Abdominal muscle tone is regained by sit-ups and abdominal crunches after the baby is born.

What could be causing sharp pain in my upper left abdomen months after giving birth by cesarean?

What could be causing sharp pain in my upper left abdomen months after giving birth by cesarean?

Pain In LUQ: I bet the pain has nothing to do with the c/s. I would see a GI doc and see if the pain is in their field. If it is from the c/s, it is prob from scar tissue but you would not expect that to cause pain in the upper abdomen. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have had 5 cesarean sections, an appendectomy, 2 laparoscopy procedures, and an abdominal full hysterectomy. I have intense pelvic pain. Help!

Check with your MD: Sounds like you have had a lot of surgery and although the pain could be due to adhesions, or scar tissue which has formed from the surgeries, it may signify that something else is going on.

Make sure the ultrasound was pelvic and looked at ovaries/uterus as well as abdominal and looked at liver, subcutaneous tissues, etc. If no obvious culprit, physical therapy and/or acupuncture can be very helpful. ...Read more

What could be causing involuntry muscle contraction/twitching while sleeping for 4-5sec once runing from upper abdomen to leg post 15days of cesarean?

Nerve damage: damage to the nerves going to the muscles in that region. called fasciculations. Possibly due to damage caused by surgery. this should resolve over time. if it doesn't resolve in a couple of months, I would see a neurologist, specially if you are having symptoms like numbness and twitching in your hands and feet. ...Read more
