Hi all,
I can't find a post I read recently and hope you can help.  Someone posted about her experience in getting her stomach back in shape despite having been told it was not possible - or at least not likely after bowel surgery and I think also an ileostomy reversal.  I wanted to re-read that and now I can't find it.  The post had lots of detail about the type of exercises she did etc. as well as a comment about the feedback from her doctor.
 
Can anyone point me to that post?   
 
thanks all cool

I found it !!!  Figures, right after I posted for help. 
The post I was looking for was from Marsky on the topic "after the colectomy". 
 
Thanks Marsky!!!

Hey that was me. LOL

I'm sure you've read it, but basically what gave me this idea was instead of doing a kegel (which I also did after my surgery but for the rectal area), while I was doing the rectal kegels (I'm sure they're called something else), I thought hey why not pull in my stomach too? And sure enough I could pull it in and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds.

When I showed my surgeon what I did to tighten these stomach muscles he was amazed it was as flat as it was.

Wow, though, I'd love to have that flat stomach back. This was almost 11 years ago! I've been enjoying food more since then.....he he

I am going to try the sucking my stomach in and see what happens. Surely can't hurt. Thanks for the idea. Tracy
