I am new to this forum, so sorry if I am doing anything wrong. So a little background, I had my cyst for about 3-4 years before having surgery. Im not entirely sure what kind of surgery it was, but it was stitched closed and I had a drain hooked to me for a while. It has been about 5 months since then, everything is back to normal, I have no issues going about my day now, my only problem is that whenever I try to do situps I still get lots of pain. I'm a high school senior graduating in two months, my plan was to join the military and my general surgeon told me I would be fine to do situps again after the surgery. I am just wondering if I will ever heal enough to do situps without pain again because I dont wanna keep waiting to make a decision on what I am going to do in my life. Any help or personal experience would help out. Thanks.
