Please can someone help?? Out running just over a week ago, I experienced some very sharp lower abdomen pain. Had to stop to massage as it was a bit like a stitch, but still finished the brisk 5 miler.
By the time I drove home from my gym, my lower stomach was seriously distended (usually flat as a pancake), rock hard and very hot. Hubby immediately thought of a hernia, but I dismissed it . However serious pain over the next few days forced a visit to the GP, who confirmed the same. Seems it's along the site of a previous op. so quite likely that the old scar in the abdomen has opened.She's referred me for an urgent scan and surgical appointment, but said not to stop doing anything if it doesn't hurt. However, I constantly have such a strange sort of pain - feels like a nasty wound is exposed and it stings like mad.(?) Sneezing, coughing and laughing- not an option! Will this get better?
I've booked and paid for a trip to Florence this November for OH and me, and I have a place in the Marathon. I can defer my place to 2010 and, as our flights have been altered, I've just received an email asking if I want a refund, but I will lose some of the hotel booking fee if I postpone.
I've no idea when I'll see a consultant- or how long it will take for the op if needed, but if it's next year, I'd rather try keep to this year's plan. Will running it be a possibility or am I totally delusional?
