I had my annual physical yesterday – which is a laugh in and of itself because I have so many doctors, why bother with the physical?
I have had this hard spot in my stomach for a few months. It doesn’t hurt, and my colonoscopy was normal, so I wasn’t worried about it. I pointed it out yesterday. It’s a hernia.
Yup. Do I need surgery? No. Thankfully. Just a binder. It doesn’t bother me. My doctor couldn’t figure out why I had it, but I explained to him that I have had two pretty extensive abdominal surgeries (gastric bypass and open hysterectomy). He said my hysterectomy shouldn’t have contributed to it, but then I explained to him that they had to open me up all the way to my chest because I was full of cancer.
His reply? “Yup, that would do it.”
I swear if it isn’t one thing, it’s another.
