I saw my GI today because I have been having a lot of issues lately. She looked at my tummy and felt around and found a nice lump in my upper right abdomen. I felt it yesterday and it just felt like a knot, but she thinks that it might be a hernia. If not my GI's think that I could be having another flare in my colon and duodenum. So pretty much I just had some of my ileum removed and it has moved around...good times. Has anyone else had a hernia and if so what did it feel like and how was it fixed?
