Its been awhile since I have been on here but I am wondering if anyone has severe back pain from muscle separation in abdomen. My core is so weak and I know surgery is not my best option but my back pain is so severe that I am considering it. I’ve gone through physical therapy and it helps a little then the pain comes back. It is causing bowel incontinence. I am so worried. I just don’t know what to do. I think the surgery is very invasive. Like 14 hours and my skin could die while they have me open. Any advise would be so appreciated.
