Late in the fall I had my gallbladder removed about 3-4 days after it , I was trying to get into bed and got a sharp pain in my stomach area ( felt like a pulled muscle) a few days later I noticed when get up from bed and getting up from sitting a large bulge in center of my belly ( at that time it also felt like a pulled muscle and very sore) at the time I thought it was related directly to my surgery and it went away accept the large bulge , now a few month later it has come back , in some ways in feel like a got something stuck in the center of my gut , sometimes makes me feel like i'm gonna gag , sometimes after sitting long periods of time it gets real sore.
Things I have done : Tried to see gall bladder surgeon ( VERY) hard to get in to see him and have had 2 appointment cancelled due to emergencies , 1 doctors says like like muscle reaction to surgery , my main doctor said should have it looked at ASAP , looks like a pretty bad hernia and the fix is worse than gall bladder removal..
Anyone got any ideas / suggestion or same experiences?
Based upon the information that you have provided, you probably have a hernia involving one or more of your surgical incisions. The repair of such hernias involves using sutures or/and mesh, and can often be done laparoscopically. This type of hernia repair is quite routine, and most patients go home on the same day as their surgery.
