Loss of Stomach Muscle Tone - Too late to fix?

Hi there,
Was just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this. I had my TAH 2 years ago and unfortunately, my tummy is not good..more like a donut which I'm not happy about.
1) A friend told me that she used girdles after her babies to help her stomach regain its muscle tone..I'm regretting now that I didn't take care better after surgery...is it too late do you reckon?
2) Regarding my muscles in tummy, they are poor. Even when I cough, I feel it.....no pain, but a funny kind of sensation...hard to explain, but again, I'm wondering if it is related to poor muscle tone in my tummy.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience in this area?
