Tomorrow I finally have surgery on my hernia. For those that don’t know, 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my son I sat up in the bed pretty fast and popped a muscle in my stomach. I literally heard it and felt it but it didn’t hurt at all. It was just kind of like “Oh, that’s not good”. I was HUGE when I was pregnant and thought maybe Kimoni just pushed something outta place. Last year I told a friend about the round spot in my belly and she told me it sounded like a hernia. After lots of research and calling the advise nurse several times, I was told it was definitely an umbilical hernia and would require surgery.
Umbilical Hernia is a congenital malformation, especially common in infants of African descent, and more frequent in boys. An Acquired umbilical hernia directly results from increased intra-abdominal pressure and are most commonly seen in obese individuals.
I have been sitting here most of the night looking a photos of it. I am so fucking scared!! I obviously have procrastinated for long enough and jus need it to be over with. I am just not ready for his at all! I do not like the doctors office. And it’s freaking me out that I will be put to sleep during this procedure. I haven’t been this scared in a long time. I’m just hoping all goes well and that I recover quickly and without any problems. *sigh* Tomorrow is going to be really rough for me. I can see it now….smh!
