After 4 days of trying to find this, I am seeking help from the experts!!

My PT Director wants to know:

1. How long a cut abdominal muscle takes to heal
2. Are there any restrictions on exercise during the healing time?
3. Is there any difference if mesh is involved?

I have searched in PUBMED, EBSCO and GOOGLE with terms like muscle,
abdominal muscle, abdominal surgery, abdominal muscle, surgery, exercise,
abdominal muscle healing time (I was desperate).
I even tried some exercise and physical medicine/rehabilitation texts I have
in the library and the National Guideline Clearinghouse.

I just don't know how to search for this and hope someone has a clearer mind
than I do right now.
