I had another attack yesterday AM, excruciating pain in the entire abdomen, NV, sweats. I went to the ER and had blood work and a CT scan done.
The result is that it's my 2 hernias causing these attacks, one of them pops out next to the navel and is hard and the size of a golf ball. It takes time for it to reduce back to where it should be.
So, Tuesday I'll call my doctor and get the name of a surgeon and finally get them taken care of before they become a serious problem.
My oncologist had said that when I was on chemo, he couldn't clear me for surgery because we couldn't stop chemo for surgery and recovery time, and my body couldn't withstand the additional trauma. Now is a good time since I'm on a chemo break.
If anyone has had hernia surgery, I'd like to hear if you had it open abdomen, or lap. and how long was your recovery time?
It's always something.
Enjoy the cool fall day!
