If she has pelvic floor dysfunction she should be working with someone who treats that type of issue to try to resolve it. There are manipulations and exercises that can be done in some cases to try to help.

Hi , I have had the exact same problem for the past year, I have been going through tests at Mayo Clinic rochester,Mn for the past month, it's looking like my diagnosis may also be Pelvic floor dysfunction. Did your wife go through the Pelvic floor dysfunction 2 week biofeedback traing at Mayo for this? that is what they are now looking into for me. They say it has a 70-75% success rate.Please let me know if she has tried this and if so did it help. If she hasn't she should look into it.

I have been diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction and by Mayo and referred to the same 2 weeks program;  I have extreme bloating and have, contrary to my prior nature, become a recluse and avoided people.  
cannot stand only being able to wear "elephant" and sweat pants when I really slim and have no belly.  Am planning on doing the Mayo therapy but if it won't address the bloating I am not interested.   Please let me know if this therapy helped the bloating;
