My stomach looks like I'm 6 or 7 months pregnant. I have had several x-rays, ultrasounds and ct scans. I've had 3 children but have never had this issue until after my third child. I've been to an GI dr. and had a colonoscopy which turn out fine. Now they are telling me I need to lose all my baby weight. I'm losing my weight but everywhere but my stomach. Something is not right but I cannot get anyone to give me any answers. My stomach is enlarged and hard. It's not soft and flabby like I would expect after giving birth. I didn't realize there was anyone else out there with the same problem until I went online. I don't know what to do next. I am considering a tummy tuck since that seems to be my only option but I do not want to go down that route. Not to mention....this may not be the right solution. What do I need / or should I do next??
did you also have a colonoscopy? I would think something like that would have been found during that procedure but I'm unfamiliar with what diverticulitis is? I don't have pain. An occasional pain if I push on my stomach (left mid/bottom side) but everyone thinks I'm crazy. I'm am losing weight which makes my stomach look even bigger. The funny thing is that I feel the best in the morning and my lunch time (even if I haven't eaten anything but a banana for breakfast I take one bite of something and my stomach immediately expands. By the evening is when it's at it worse. Did they do all the other test that I mentioned above on you as well. What were your symptoms and what kind of dr. performs a Barium enema (GI dr).
