I slowly worked myself up and a little after a year PP I could do most of the exercises I was used to doing pre-baby. I still had a small overhang and saggy skin, but I was hopeful that once I burned off a little more fat my skin would pull back in and so would the overhang. Just didn't get there before another pregnancy. Most stuff I read said surgery is the only thing that fixes it, but I won't believe that until I've done everything I can. My only concern is my right side has thick scar tissue underneath along my incision. I'm afraid ill get my tummy tight, then have a nearly penis-sized horizontal bump on one side, lol. I wonder if that can be removed if I have another csection.
They can remove scar tissue if you do have another c section. My first was closed with staples and my right side had a thick line of scar tissue. My second c section was done by another doctor in the practice and she removed a lot of scar tissue and used dissolving stitches and it is barely noticeable now.
