I have recently noticed some mornings when I just wake up that I have something bulging from by abdominal area, a little on the left side. It is kind of large, does not hurt, but when I get out of bed and try to lay down again to feel it, it goes away. I originally thought it was a tumor (cause I am a hypochondriac) but when I noticed it dissapearing I figured, well a tumor won't dissapear. Could this be a hernia? At first I thought it was a gas bubble, but it's always in the same area.
It does sound as if you could have a hernia. You should go to your family doctor for a check-up and bring this to his/her attention. If it is a hernia, please locate a surgeon who is able to repair it with out mesh, there are a growing number of people who are suffering from these mesh implants. The FDA does know that these mesh products are of a concern, but they are afraid to do anything about it and have been trying to cover it up.. Depending on where you live, I may be able to put you in touch with a premium surgeon that has been helping many of us, with complications from mesh surgery.
my wife has had 2 surgeries last summer and fall , vertical incisions spaced 3-4" apart and now after 4-5 months her stomach is bulging out as if she is 5-6 months pregnant she's 57 yrs old]. It is very hard to the touch and make her uncomfortable but more to the point she is worrying a great deal as to what the problem is..She was in the hospital for 2 weeks in February but was released with no diagnosis just prescribed pills for stomach spasms. She is lined up now with a gastro specialist next week .Things have gone painfully slow in her getting the treatment she should .. Any information would be appreciated ..Thanks andy
I think I might have a hernia, last night I woke up to a bulge in the upper middle part of my stomach. My stomach hurt when I tried to stand up straight, but the pain went away after about 10 min. Does this mean I have a hernia or tumor? (I lift weights) =/
