    Hi Rip & the rest off the forum,

    I have gallstones and am about to have them (and then my gall bladder) removed.

    One of the side shows of the scan which confirmed the gallstones was identification that I have divarication of the rectus abdominus in the midline (by up to 6cm). Not something that I'd noticed before but, on reading up on this, I recognise the symptoms. I have no discomfort and feel no weakness in my lifts.

    Just wondering if anyone else on the forum has come across this ailment and, if so: 1). Did you do anything about it? and 2). If so, what?

    This is a midline hernia. They will repair it after they get through with the gall bladder. You will wear a velcro belt above your regular belt to support the repair.
