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 described graphically. There are some aspects to this crisis that I do not think I may be able to share. Why? Well, some of what I experienced has been pretty gross. What happened is pretty fresh. It is still hard for me to believe I have been able to handle it. I did have tremendous help from Jennifer Daniels, MD. Her directions, insights and support kept me out of an emergency room. I also had the support from my husband, who despite being pretty freaked out by my situation, has been extremely helpful to me. I will be eternally grateful for his love and encouragement during this entire highly traumatic event.
Again, sorry for not having more information here. I will write in more detail sometime in the next month or so.
