Right need advice guys as you all know I had emergency gallbladder surgery in July 2016 as it ruptured and I ended up in intensive care. Two nights ago in work I found a lump just above my scar the lump is painful to touch and the pain is going round to my back. I'm wondering if this is normal as I'm thinking it could be a hernia? I'm too scared to go to the Drs as every time i go to Drs I end up in hospital. So guys if any of u have any swellings around your scar I just want to know if u were me what would you do?

    Hi, I understand how you feel. I don't like going to the doctors because of gallbladder problems and now nerve entrapment causing similar pain. 

    I Know you don't want to go but please go to your doctor's and just get it checked out, more for you own peace of mind otherwise you'll worry and stress even more if you don't. 

    Let me know how you get on. Take care x

    The thing is if you don't go to the drs, you can't have peace of mind about what this lump actually is. Is being admitted to hospital that bad? Nobody in their right mind LIKES hospitals but sometimes it's just necessary. I had open gallbladder surgery this year followed a month later by a liver resection as they found a growth when the labs tested the tissue removed after the gallbladder surgery. I am truly sick and tired of hospitals but I grit my teeth and go. You should see a dr asap. X

      Well, I hope that your surgeon repairs it.  Any kind of hernia isn't good, in my opinion.  I was diagnosed with a small hiatal hernia 8  years ago.  They usually leave these alone.  Now, it's a medium sized one and is causing me some problems...

      Please let us know how you get on! xx
