Question ab exercises after multiple surgeries?

Hey everyone I hope that you can help. I basically have no real abdomenal strength due to having 4 ab surgeries. 3 of which cut muscle?? vertically to get in. So needless to say I have like no abdomenal strength. I try to do sit ups or even knee raises hanging from a bar HA out of the question. I can't do them. I can do the plank pose from yoga and it's not too bad but i need to figure out some wy to tone my midsection. I asked the Dr. at my last surgery if they could tighten the muscles up for me or remove some fat and he just chuckled. I don't think they realize that after that many surgeries I have no muscle strength or muscle integrity left it feels like. Am I just that out of shape or does anyone know if surgeries can really diminish muscle strength? Thanks for reading my post.
