Episode 5 - Stockton
35 year old Helen visits the clinic to see Dr Dawn about her enlarged stomach, which first appeared after she had a baby 21 months ago. Helen’s bowel is so close to the surface of her skin that she can see her food digesting. Dr Dawn diagnoses a muscle divarication, meaning her stomach muscles have split and not healed after pregnancy. Dr Dawn refers her to a plastic surgeon to repair the damaged muscle. When Helen returns to the clinic following the procedure she tells Dr Dawn she no longer has the back pain she used to, and she is happier with her appearance.
