Bellybutton Hernia Repair
hey guys - any of you do this? i just got it done a week ago and it looks aweful! Im all bruised and swollen, have a real "paunch" belly and a totally flat navel! No innie, no outie. Abs/core have been weak for last year because of this, but now I feel like jelly belly.
Anyone been through this? Only 8 days so i am being super careful in the gym. did calves and biceps - that's about it. i hope it works out....

thanks for the info, bro. It's 2 weeks tomorrow and it feels really wierd now - totally flat, not innie or outie. I have about 1/2" of belly fat so got to get rid of that. I sure hope it shrinks, cuase bellybutton is about 2x the size it was before - oh well - there goes my modelling career....lol

That looks better than mine did.
My entire belly was blue/purple for a good long time. I think it took me a week before I even walked around the block. I'm sure I took at least a month off from the gym.

hey guys - so guess what? doc took out the stitches yesterday and drained 5 CC of fluid from my button! I am back down to an innie! he said i should tape a marble in there so that it heals as an innie, so i have done so. it is less deep again this am (20 hrs later) so i am thinking i may need to go for additional drainage in a week. We'll see. i am dying to do some core exercises. i'ma wait it out tho...

Hey bros - its been 3 months and my abs are totally weak. i did an ab & Core class at the gym which felt (hard as hell) pretty good, but I\1 day later i felt like i ripped out some stitches so i backed off again. Any one have experience with this?
