To cut or not to cut...
Thursday, October 04, 2012
No, no. I am not talking about cutting/slashing myself. Just wanted to clear that up.
But I am considering surgery. Thanks to an emergency c-section, followed by a twin pregnancy and then a singleton pregnancy, I am one of those 'lucky' women with an abdominal hernia. Actually, I do consider myself lucky, because mine doesn't hurt. But it does make me look 6-months pregnant, no matter what my weight. And I hate it.
So I've been wondering whether or not to have elective surgery to fix my hernia.
On the one had, it's a battle wound AND it doesn't hurt (right now, at least). And I am more than just my looks.
On the other hand, I hate looking pregnant when I'm not. And surgery could fix this.
I am not making any decisions soon as I can't have the surgery until my kids are much bigger and don't require any lifting (for hugs, for tiredness, for injuries, etc). But this is ALWAYS on my mind. I mean, aren't most of us here on SP trying to make ourselves more healthy, and isn't one of the perks of getting healthy looking good?
So, what would you do if you were in my place? Just curious. There are no right or wrong answers, just opinions. But be nice. This is MY body we are talking about!
