If you had a pedicled TRAM flap using the recuts muscle for blood supply, some persistent weakness of the abs is well recognized.  An abdominal binder or girdle may imporve your symptoms.  If there is significant evidence of wekaness of your abdominla wall with protrusion, then repair of the psudo hernia may be required with a natural or artificial mesh graft to further reinfoce you abdominal wall.
