In brief: Depends
It really depends on the reason why your abdomen is protruding.
Some causes of a protruding abdomen can be quite serious and need to be evaluated by a doctor. Sometimes an abdomen protrudes from a hernia, which may need to be repaired surgically. If the protrusion is from constipation, this should resolve once the constipation resolves.
