    I have one from newborn DD. At the moment we (Dr and I) are just waiting to see if exercise will help the tummy muscles rejoin or not. I'm guessing not as I don't often have the chance to do them!

    Mine hurts too if I sit forward and put pressure on it or wear things that are tight.

    I felt the lump while pregnant but just thought it was a weird pregnancy thing or the cord. Wish I'd told my Dr as they could have fixed it when I had my elective!

    Yes I had a very large one. I got it during ds2 pregnancy. My surgeon was going to fix it when he did my sleeve but it was to big to do than.
    Than during ds3 pregnancy I started to get bad pain. The first time I went to hospital I was kept in and watched for 18 hours. I sent home with a appointment to see the specialist in 2 months (i think).I didn't make it, only 2 weeks later I was back in hospital with extreme pain, I was given heaps of morphine and a few scans and it was decided that my bowel was trapped in the hernia and I needed surgery there and than. I was 19 weeks pregnant and my dh was away. The was a huge risk to bub. Something like 40 percent. Without the op we both would have died.

    I had the op at 2 am and I was back on the ward by 5am and I was home by 3pm. I couldn't move much for that first day after that it was sore but OK. I ended up with a 11cm long scar and a new belly button. I think they do laparoscopic if your not pregnant so you would have such a big scar.
