Tummy muscles a year + later....help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all, hope you are all doing well?

I had a total hysterectomy 15 months ago, I feel great in myself but can't get my tummy muscles back to normal, they just seem all floppy and it doesn't matter what exercises I do they remain floppy eek, I have to wear sloggi support pants to control things eekeek!, I never had to wear this kind of thing before, anyone found the same problem or is it just me? and any suggestions on exercises would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks.

    i'm the other way (tummy wise) my tummy is rock hard and sometimes painful from feeling tight. I am slim so when i get any swelly belly it actually pulls the skin and feels horrid.

      Hi neverstaystill, yes my tummy was like yours to begin with, I don't get 'swelly belly' per se though at the end of the day it's similar, this is similar to after you have given birth it's just floppy and horrible rolleyes, I can pull my tummy in, you know, as if you are trying to do up a pair of trousers that are a little tight, and have been doing these types of things but it makes no difference at all and  I have to wear the sloggi's to help.
