So as I last posted I have had some doubts based on my diastasis recti diagnosis. My doctor says I need the surgery (basically your stomach muscles are split apart and weakened from pregnancy). They say one of the symptoms is lower back, hip, buttock pain-but is this really the case? Since I have been thinking about this, I have felt more pain (which is telling). I see a lot of info in the books and on the wiki addressing things like bulging discs, but I have not read anything on the wiki nor heard a TMS-oriented doctor address this particular (diastasis recti) issue. Someone suggested I consult a TMS-oriented doctor. Is there a way to post this question on another TMS wiki forum (like ask an expert) to see if a doctor or another TMS wiki user has experience with this? I am very ready to get back to the TMS work, but am stuck on this and need some more info. Thanks all!
