Hi everyone! I am new to the site. I am writing because I just got a bunch of news from my doctor and I am also in a great deal of pain. I just had my baby 8 weeks ago. A bit after that I started getting pain in my sides and lower back. My lower stomach has also been hurting a lot. It sometimes feels like someone is crushing me or something. I at first thought it was my kidenys cause I had repeatable infections during my pregnancy. But I was wrong. I was told yesterday that I have an embilical hernea. I may have spelled that wrong lol. But I was also told that I have enlarged lymphnodes in my neck,groin,stomach,and possibly my back where my sides are. My doctor said he doesn't think it's lymphoma but he wanted to set up an appointment with a surgeon to check me and to possibly do a biopsey. I also have to get a chest x-ray cause I think my doctor said something about swelling there. So of course I am very worried about all this. Is there anything else the swelling could be besides lymphoma? I am in so much pain that I am going to the hospital tomorrow to see if I can get help cause I am not supposed to see the surgeon till the end of May and they didn't give me anything for the pain. If any one can offer any helpful advice or their opinion for my symptoms that would be great. Thank you so much for reading!
