I have permanent stomach bloating 8 months following giving birth- is this a factor of ibs or not?
I still look pregnant 8 months after giving birth and have also been getting high rib pain front and back on an intermittant basis. My stomach protrudes in an abnormal way on a constant basis.
I have no other symptoms.

My Doctor diagnosed me as having IBS and gave me 'dom perigon' drug which then gave me acid heartburn indigestion and didnt really ease the problem.  A friend told me about peppermint oil capsules which seem to work and i now use.

However my stomach has not gone down and i now believe I have another problem internally with my stomach.  The doctor ruled out hernia after examining me.  Could it be due to the difficult birth (internal turning of the baby during labour then forceps)?  Could I have damage to stomach muscles/other organs which is causing it?

Anyone else had this problem post birth?

Hi, just want to let you know that after having 2 babies, my aunt has the same stomach as you describe, protruding and hard, her doctor told her that her muscles have gone lazy and caused this.
