It seems Stumpy has a new friend ..Lumpy. I think I have hatched a hernia right at my incision site. Thought I had dodged that bullet, but Mother Nature is not finished messing with me yet.. Another ultrasound in the morning. My Dr has promised to call with the results as soon as they have them. Oh well…
Good thing I am seeing the surgeon next week…

Still no word on the ultrasound results. Stumpy seems to be ok so not really worried. More curious now to see how long it will take for someone to realize they never called me. At least the test is already in the system as I am sure the surgeon would have wanted one anyway, One more thing checked off the pre-flight list.

Well, I guess my hernia is not serious since no one has called me with the ultrasound results. The office gal called at noon to say they had recieved them around noon today, but 6:oo came and went and and I know nothing. I guess we wiil operate on the the theory that no news is good news at least til Monday or til I see the surgeon. Sightly annoyed since I was promised they would call as soon as the results were in.

Still have not heard from the Dr about the ultrasound. Don't know if this means they haven't received them or if it is just a busy day and they just haven't been able to call yet. Haven't even gotten an e-mail back to acknowledge my message. It is a very busy office. Patience.

Just came from the ultrasound. The tech pretty much confirmed that it is a hernia…said it was pretty obvious. Just waiting to hear what the full results are from the Drs. office and if it will be ok to wait til next week still to see the surgeon. As long as there is no blockage, I should be all right.

so sorry your going through all this all at the same time. Can they fix the hernia at the same time as your other surgery? I sure hope so. You've got such a good attitude keep it up.

Compared to the rest of this stuff, a hernia is just a bump in the road and more easily fixed.

Girl, by the time this is all over you are going to be an expert in WAY too many things! I hope they can fix them both and send them packing. I do like that you have named them though.

Thanks. I had a colostomy 6 mos ago…Stumpy. Now it seems that I may have a hernia around the original incision site…Lumpy..Gotta laugh at something. Now it's time to send Stumpy home…that's why I'm seeing the surgeon..Still hoping to schedule the reversal soon…maybe get a twofer now
