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

Abdominal exercises: Many times after delivery many women have a lot of tissue as a result of the abdominal stretch during pregnancy.It seems you are doing good aerobic exercise but might need more of what is called strengthening exercises. Probably a nice routine of sit ups can help to give tone to your abdominal muscles.Be patient because it might take some time depending on many factors. F/u with your doctor too. ...Read more

Wound infection: The smell may not just come from trapped moisture and wound secretions with skin-skin contact, but from a wound infection in deeper layers of the incision. Have it checked out and don't wait until you run an elevated body temperature. ...Read more

I had a baby 4/14/14 via cesarean&have this hanging flap of skin&or fat on stomach.Can you tell me if its skin&or fat&if its fat how to get rid of it?

It's left over: expanded flab from the pregnancy. Sometimes it is called baby fat, but whatever it is called in order to get rid of it you will have to do some aerobic and stretching exercises, along with isotonics to "tone" your rectus abdominis and latissimus dorsi. There is no other way around it. Unless you want a "tummy tuck" which does not guarantee to keep it away forever unless you exercise too. ...Read more

Nutrition/exercise: A good nutrition plan (diabetic diet is good) and aerobic exercise is going to be your best option. Having an 11 month old can certainly tie up your time and energy, but start finding those times and increase to 4 or more times a week to exercise and eat healthy. You should eat a minimum of 5 time a day. I like the 1500 calorie flat belly plan. ...Read more
