Hey Matthew - when he told me his symptoms I thought of you immediatly. He is the stoic type as far as me not "seeing" his pain but he is not afraid to say "ok, hospital time" and we have done that a few times over the years due to his athletic injuries or abdominal pain. The pain is fairly localized so he is doesn't think it is his kidneys as it is not radiating into his back or down the front. I will let him know about the hernia suggestion and I am sure he will call his doc in the AM. He was just nervous that it could be something serious and I knew I could make him feel better by getting suggestions on here. In my opinion if he was grocery shopping, grabbing wood from the shed, and cooking dinner, he probably didn't need to go to the ER but we all know we push ourselves sometimes even when we are having an emergency.
(and yes ladies, I know I am blessed to have a husband who does the "wife" chores all the time!)
