I have an abdominal hernis that makes me look pregnant. I have even been asked if I am. Although I am over weight. My Dr. said it's from being pregnant my muscles have seperated nothing to worry about. I'm not worried I don't want to look pregnant at 54. He said a surgeon wouldn't touch me until I loss weight, and I have tried, I also have 7 slipped discs, frybro, osteo and rhuematoid arthritis, depression, two torn rotator cuffs. It would be nice if I could look a little better in my clothes. It's a little hard to exercise with all these issues and I have dropped my caloric intake,(still look pregnant). HELP!!!
