Fund the NHS to provide free diastasis recti surgery (abdominoplasty)
I would like the Government to fund the NHS to provide free diastasis recti surgery for people who have done physio, had scans, travelled to other hospitals, wrote an impact statement after being told you may get it on the NHS and had to jump through hoops to then be told NO!
After having my 3rd child I was in a lot of pain with my tummy and hips and have been diagnosed with recti divarication. I have had months of physio and seen other doctors, had a scan, x-ray and all confirm my condition. My son is now nearly 3 years old and I'm still very much in pain and suffering the effects of living with what I call a pregnant belly, it restricts me from simple things like putting my shoes on, laying on my tummy, what I wear, it's destroyed my confidence, I can't afford surgery.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
