It's been three months since my kidney surgery and I too have this bulge in my side. My surgeon tells me it is not a hernia as does my internist, however my cardiologist and my back doctor both tell me that it sure looks like one.
How does one find out if it is a hernia for sure or worse, as Coni has now described, or just a weakness of the abdominal wall following the surgery as my surgeon tells me. If it is a hernia whose advice does one follow, where does one go?
I have four doctors, two opinions and discomfort.
