Just call me Dr. House

Because I'm a brilliant diagnostician and I'm on Vicodin!

Yes I was right about the umbilical hernia. My doc was a little worried about it because she said I shouldn't be in as much pain as I was so she ran some rush labs making sure I didn't have an infection or anything. She tried calling her surgeon friend but it was already too late in the day on a Friday for us to get anywhere.

Hopefully I'll be meeting with the surgeon in the next day or 2 and getting this over with fast. I've read different things about the actual surgery but methods vary based on the size of the problem so I will have to get the full scoop from the doctor (imagine that!!)

I'm not too worried about it but I'm not sure if it's really sunk in yet. I've never had a single medical problem in my life. Ha! Welcome to 40.

I will keep y'all posted and thanks so much for the good vibes!!

  4. Hi Tina - I'm on Vicodan too! Have only had one dose in the last 24 hours. So sorry to hear of your situation, but my understanding is the surgery is relatively cut and dry, with a pretty easy recovery. Still - surgery and anesthesia are a big deal under any circumstance. I hope this is all easy and speedy!

    BTW, be aware of a MAJOR side effect of Vicodan - constipation. I've already dealt with this fun little deal this round - but I now remember why I stopped taking it so fast after my first knee was done!
