I just got dx with an umbilical hernia, ultrasound scheduled for Wednesday. But the last couple days I have been in so much pain and then really bad diarhrea..which is extrememly rare for me. Has anyone had an umbilical hernia and surgery..apparently it can get to where you need emergency surgery and surgery is the ONLY way to resolve this anyway. What do i take for diarhrea..best foods to eat? What about the pain. I want to hold out for ultrasound and not be a wimp and bother my doctor, but i can't even walk my puppy..and i live alone so it is just me..
Just not sure what to do? Any input would be greatly appreciated !!
