Hi Fellow Spineys,
I have to make an appointment with my GP regarding this, but I was just wondering:
Anyone develop a hernia due to their weak core muscles while recovering from surgery? My core was/has been weak before the surgery, then brace for 3 months, then still chronic pain from prior fusion making it difficult to do much strenghthening. Now I've noticed this protrusion in my upper belly (no pain) and think its a hernia.
Just another wonderful thing to have to deal with! Like I said, I am calling my Dr. for him to check me out, just wondering if any of you have had this; did you need surgery to repair it?
Thanks for any help,
