I am 26 weeks off as of yesterday. It has been a road with many ups and downs. While I am not totally healed I do feel I am making significant (albeit slow) progress. This summer I have made a concerted effort to eat lighter and exercise. I am frustrated with my belly. I definitely have a rounded (looks like I am 3-4 months pregnant) tummy. This is not how I looked prior to this experience. I know it is from cortisol/stress and possibley GI issues (have been fairly constipated through this journey).
My question is this, does this go away as things dial down and I get better? Or am I stuck with a pooch? I know in the big scheme of things after all the hell I have been through this is small. But still, I would like to return to my former self in every way.
Anyone healed or healed enough to see this improve?
