I plan to get diastasis recti and a belly button hernia repaired. I've had these conditions since 2001, after the birth of my first child. Second child, 2005. It has gotten so bad that I look between 5-8 mths pregnant, depending on whatever. My 1st doctor consultation to address these matters will be later this month. As of today, I'm just learning what diastasis recti is and it describes my appearance. I also have the constipation problem too.
*Should I get repairs done before or after I have more children? Assuming there is no hernia strangulation or other significant issues regarding this condition. I don't want to get all that tummy work done, just to have it reoccur after another pregnancy. What should I do?
