  • Diastasis/Divarication? Have u ever been pregnant? Maybe you have divarication and it is spreading further apart which makes your abdomen bulge out noticeably. I don't know, just a guess. Maybe you have a hernia. Are you overweight or is it all just your stomach getting bigger?

  • I too have am extremely swolen from just under my breast all the way down. I feel and look just like i am 9 mos pregnant. It happened very quickly anout 2 years ago and continues to grow. I have seen several docs but they don't seem alarmed or interested. I am 60 and weighed between 130 & 135 my whole adult life. I now weigh 173 and can hardly breathe. This is shocking to my system. When i look in the mirror i don't know that person. It has put me in a state of depression. I did't realize how much your weight affected every aspect of your being. If you have any answers or ideas please help! I don't know where to turn to for help!
