Again, I know this is not a medical recommendation site, but I have a question and can't get a hold of my usual go-to people...lol
I ended up at e.r. today for severe abdominal pain, can not tolerate any liquids, or food with out vomiting ( I know I am dehydrated)...
This is what the e.r. did for me: gave me a contrast c.t scan, and told me I have a bulging hernia. Then discharged me with instructions to follow up with a local surgeon in 3-4 days.
They did not give me any fluids, were not concerned about pain level being high, and apparently thought it was ok that I am having these problems and did not bother to consult my surgeon ( who is at a hospital 4 hours away, which is why I did not go there to begin with)...
SOOOO.... should I be concerned about having my small intestine bulge thru my stomach after all the surgery I have had? ( In January I had a total colectomy with ileo rectal anastamosis with immediate reconnection) My thought would be yes, but how on earth would I go about contacting him on a saturday?????
Any insight on what to do?
