Medical help
 
Anyone ever had a hernia before?

Do they come on slowly or hit you like a bus?

Thanks, I've spent too long looking at those sites now, if I take it too seriously I've got every disease going but a hernia is looking likely.

Docs appointment at American Hospital requested. :(:eek:

No, but maybe the latter made the former worse?

As far as I knew it's a tear in the stomach muscle amd your innards are trying to break out.

Best go to see a doctor.

Best go to see a doctor.

Appointment booked for tomorrow afternoon.

It's not too bad when I bend forwards and lean left a bit.

After all this I bet it's just a little strain and I'm being a big girl.

It's a cry for help from your intestines. They obviously need the food and booze.

Clearly. Hopefully the doctor tomorrow will agree.

Had a belly button ('umbilical' is the actual name) hernia repaired in the summer of 2011 (a little lump of what feels like hard body fat under the skin protrudes just beside the belly button). The surgeon basically massaged it back inside (there was a bit of cutting and removing too, of some sort) then inserted a sort of trellis-work barrier between the inner hole and the outer belly button.

No problem since, although (a) you cannot lift anything heavier than a full kettle of water for about ten days, and (b) I can still feel the remains of the work under the skin even today (this is normal apparently and may be detectable there in a minor way for the rest of my life).

The other sort of hernia (down by the groin, near the fold between leg and torso) is the sort footballers get, and can be repaired very easily, then you just need to rest a lot.
