I have a beautiful perfect little girl who is 6 months old. I never thought I would ever have my own kids. adn than I got pregnant with her which was a surprise that I am so thankful for.

Since I was a teenager I've battled with sever pelvic pain, not thinking anything of it because most people including my mom thought it was in my head.

Now 8 years down the road from when it all started. Ive had 2 Drs. suggest endometriosis. however my primary gynocologist still wont help me. He tells me the pain is in my head. Im tired of being put down by my doctors. and im tired of living in pain.

And im at the point of trying to find someone to do a laproscopy and in the end probably have a hysterectomy.

Im 21.

Thats a young age to decide that I dont want anymore kids. Expecially after a God send like my Nova baby. And I know once it is done it is done and I can never change my mind. But 8 years of pain and that after childbirth having the pain magnify? - I am ok with that decision. So why cant my Dr accept it too?

    I agree that you should go see another doctor. Being in pain all the time is not acceptable. Sadly some doctors are in a rush to push you out the door, especially if your concern involves pain.

Endometriosis is a very real disease that can be diagnosed. There are potential treatments as well, that would be less permanent than a hysterectomy. Don't give up until you get answers. A second or even third opinion is completely reasonable.

I hope that you find the perfect doctor for you that will help you. I know it's discouraging, but hang in there. emoticon

    I suggest that you go see another doctor. It seems unethical that all he has to say is you're imagining it. Get a second opinion and hopefully someone will help you.

In the mean time, be at peace and enjoy your beautiful little girl! emoticon

How do you loose weight when the Dr says no exercising!?

Friday, May 31, 2013

How do you loose the baby weight (especially around the tummy) if your told not to exercise due to diastisis recti (in my case) I'm not supposed to do anything with my core muscles. no planks no crunches not sit ups no twists no contractions or extension movement.... its a wonder that i'm allowed to leave my bed!!

feeling discouraged and frustrated. emoticon

    The good news for you is that all those crunches and things won't do what you want them to, anyway. Weight loss is a total-body process, so to lose that baby tummy, you have to lose fat overall. Do be aware that your body is different now, so it won't be exactly the way it was.

In order to lose weight, you eat a calorie-restricted diet. :) Exercise HELPS, but it isn't the key. As Jenstress already posted, great abs are made in the kitchen... not the gym. So focus on your diet for now, eating whole foods in moderate portions whenever possible, and make sure you weigh and measure so you KNOW what you're eating, and not just guessing!

You can do this. :)

Also ask your doctor for a referral to a physical therapist; diastasis rectii can be corrected with specific exercises designed to do that, but you need a PT to guide you through the process.

    Sorry to hear that you are restricted from exercising. Just like the previous posters, walk and eat following the spark guidelines. Wishing you luck and hopefully you can get to do some light workouts soon!

    First, abs are actually made in the kitchen. SO start making changes there. Eat whole foods, fresh veggies, lean meats, and cut out as much processed food as you can. FOllow your SP calorie guildelines and really track your food. The weight will come off that way.

Then, LIke TLG71567 and SHEENADEE, start walking! Don't push yourself too hard if you are in pain, but just walk. Walk as far as you can for as long as you can.

And as far as weight in the middle goes, that is determined by genetics. I have pretty good genes and don't carry my extra weight in my tummy. (My hind end and thighs however, ugh!) That being said, I still have a small little chub section from having my daughter. I know I will get it off, but it is going to take time!!!

    I would say walk. Put the baby in the stroller and walk, walk, walk. emoticon

    Hi! Sorry to hear about your restrictions. I hope that is a temporary issue. Did you ask your doc if there are other types of exercise you can do? I understand that core exercises that you mention are not allowed; but what about walking or bike riding? Those don't focus on your middle of course; but, any calorie lost is a good thing and you can burn them through other means hopefully.

Best wishes!
