I THOUGHT I DID, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE AN ABSCESS
Post Script: This post got mistakenly posted before it was complete. I will write more in the near future. Despite that it is not complete, I have decided to keep the post up anyway.
My story is not one I really want to share for a number of reasons, but I decided to do so anyway. Hopefully, what I write here may help someone else.
There was a time when I looked for information on how to heal a hernia.Over the years I have found very little that was helpful. Almost nothing. My experience is not one that I will probably be able to tell in great detail. One major reason is that there are so many parts to this puzzle that I have not been able to connect together yet. Also, it has been a very painful experience both physically and emotionally. Some of the details are ones that many people may not want to hear in detail. Some that I do not think I am able to share. Why? Well, some of the details are pretty gross. My most recent experience is pretty fresh. It is hard for me to believe I was able to handle it. I did have help from Jennifer Daniels, MD. I also had the support from my husband, who despite being pretty freaked out by my situation, was extremely helpful to me. I will be eternally grateful for his love and encouragement while the worst of it was going on.
Again, sorry for not having more information here. I will write in more detail sometime in the next month or so.
