Again, hernia was my first thought as well. I hope he is feeling okay and the doctor can fix this up really quick and it is not a big deal. Don't worry until you see someone. I know it is hard to do, but try and have a good weekend, see a movie, do something relaxing with him and take your minds off of it until Monday.

Let us know.

It sounds like an epigastric hernia, which is more uncomfortable than dangerous. It's good that you have a doc's appointment, but I wouldn't be unduly concerned. He'll probably be referred to a general surgeon who can fix it in an outpatient procedure, if he wants it fixed.

When I was a surgery resident, I repaired dozens of them.

I am glad you've made the appt for him. I know with my bf (practically a dh considering our years together), I would have to do the same. It could be one of a hundred (maybe thousand?) things. The good thing, it seems it's an early catch of whatever it is. Hernia came to mine for me too, so here is to hoping that your husband is okay and that you start off your week with comforting news.

Try to relax this weekend and know that whatever can be done to this point has been (you've recognized the problem and made the appt). Good luck on Monday!

My husband had his appointment today. We are still not really sure what is going on. He has been scheduled for an ultrasound. Our doctor believes he may have either an ulcer or gall stones. We are hoping for the ulcer! lol

In any case the doctor said that the "lump" was really just a normal protrusion that most people are unaware of until they have pain in that area. He told mu husband that in all likelyhood most of the soreness is caused because my husband keeps poking at the spot!! I have personally witnessed a deep pre-occupation with rubbing and poking that spot so I believe the doctor.

In any case the news is better than bad. Its a big relief to me!

I wanted to say again how much I appreciate all the well wishes!

You guys are all really great!! :D
