Okay, so i am new here. I have googled my heart out and found nothing so i wanted to ask someone. I will try and keep this short.
So, my husband has strange bumps on his side. They go all the way from his ribs to his hip. They are kind of greyish, and warm and soft to the touch. I asked him about it when I first saw them and he said they have been there for years. He claims they don't hurt or anything. My first thought was a hernia, but i have never seen one so large that looks like lumps before. So, recently I was talking with his dad because my husband has had quite a few surgeries in his life time. His dad said when he was about 18 months old, they took him to the hospital because he was in pain and they found out he had intestinal malrotation, and they also discovered his hip was dislocated, and he has something called perthes disease. He had a surgery to correct his hip, but from what he can remember, the malrotation was not corrected. When he was 8 he had another surgery to correct an undecended testicle, and he also had two more surgeries in his teens for his hip and legs. But he says he has never had any surgery to fix the malrotation. Now, I have read about this and it can cause life threatening complications and is usually fixed as an infant soon after malrotaion is discovered, so idk why they didnt fix it then, but I am wondering if maybe thats what the bumps are? Nothing i have found states that the malrotation should be visible from the outside though. He is reluctant to go to the doctor, but i am trying to get him to go. Until then I am really hoping for a clue as to what this could be.
