A hernia -- any abnormal opening in the stomach wall -- can occur after gastric bypass surgery. If the abdominal wall gets damaged during this procedure, a weakness in the stomach lining may occur, creating an internal hernia.
There are a variety of reasons why the abdominal wall may lose function. Childbirth with its resultant stretching and changing of the structure of the muscles and fascia is the most common reason in females. Other reasons in all populations include obesity and weight loss (from surgery or otherwise), prior abdominal surgery, and prior trauma. Any process, in fact, which changes the structural integrity of the abdominal wall can cause abdominal wall dysfunction.
Have a look: She’s only 1-month post-op and already looks amazing! Maintaining a healthy lifestyle after surgery is so important and #tummytuck is a perfect example of this. At @dr.monishakapooraesthetics, we stitch an internal Corset, repairing the muscle separation to reveal a toned and flat tummy once again. #weightlosstransformations #weightlossurgery #weightlosssuccess #plasticsurgerybeforeafter #plasticsurgeonsofinstagram #plasticsurgey #weightlossupport #snatchedbody #snatchedwaist
Well, the answer is that it greatly depends on the type of surgery you had, open or less invasive. In general, you will know if it’s okay to return to your normal activities if you hear your body. It will tell you when you are all right.
