OK when i got up this morning I was a little sore at the bottom of my belly just right underneith the scar from the drain tube.  I can feel a knot there.  Is this a hernia??? i hope not !!! and if it is , is there anything that can be done besides surgery?  i dont even want to deal with this,  I am sooo dang sick of dr.s . plus my husband just got out of the hospital yesterday from having surgery on his ankle. he's gonna be laid up for about a month.   uuurrrggg!!!  has anyone else had this happen?  it been four month since i had my total colectomy.


 
I Just tell myself, it could be worse !!!

I had the same thing but I am not gonna be much help cause I can't remember what the surgeon said it was. My GI mentioned hernia but the surgeon said it wasn't. It did go away but was kinda sore for a while. (I'm having a sr. moment) I wioll think about it while I'm at work today and if I can remember I will let you know! (gee it's He** to get old!) :)

Oh Cindy you have already helped by giving me some hope that i might not be doomed for another surgery. haha,   i'm gotta make me an apt with my GI, he's only about an hour and a half away where my surgery in 4 hours away, and with school i dont have any free days and i cant miss class becuse I'm not smart enough to figure out physics on my own. 

Dont feel bad for forgetting,  I balme my memory loss on all the meds I used to be on, hahaha, any thing to avoid amitting getting old!!!!  even young peeps have brain farts.

Please let me know if you remember, hopefully I have what you had !

Thank you !!

It could also be just an area that food is having trouble getting through, or some scar tissue. You should get it checked out though because, although less likely, it could be a fistula or abscess. Good luck, I hope it goes away soon. Nancy

Hi, TJane!  It doesn't sound like a hernia to me.  I have a peristomal hernia and I got it when I coughed too hard about 11 months after surgery.  I've had the hernia now for 15 years.  Anyway, when I coughed, I felt the muscle tear and the pain nearly took my breath away.  I KNEW what had just happened.  You might just have a muscle spasm so there is a knot in the muscle.  Maybe try to gently massage the area.  Take a warm shower or bath and relax with a cup of tea.  Getting yourself upset doen't help anything and just makes things worse.  nono   Have it checked out to be sure but it sure doesn't sound like what I have.
