    I've been feeling some discomfort in my lower left abdomen...no pain, but just getting a little worried. What were your symptoms?

    i had one this past spring. sucked. what are you feeling? if you are feeling a bump in your abdomen then most likely it's a hernia.

    if you exhale really hard or cough and feel discomfort and the lump then yeah, that's a good sign of a hernia.

    i have a pretty bad pain in my left abdomen. gotten it checked out about 3 times and its not a hernia. no bump or anything. i think its some sort of ab/hip flexor strain

    I don't feel any lump...just a wierd discomfort. I've also been a little constipated, so maybe its just that I'm feeling.

    constipation can also be a sign of an impinged intestine not to get your worried but usually youd have some sort of lump somewhere in that case

    what exactly is hernia? isn't it something to do with the spine discs?

    damn how did it get so big? did you just let it get bigger and bigger before operating?

    i didnt get surgery til a few months after i got the hernia, and i noticed it got only slightly larger. mine was a little smaller than the size of a ping pong ball.

    i ignored it for about 2-3 years, i know it was stupid. By the time i had surgery it was just unbearable, when working out i had a friend put a foot on it so it doesn't pop out. Everytime i tried to jump half my intestines would pop out.

    holy :ugh: and especially about the part with ur friend putting his foot near your croch :ugh:

    man your intestines could have twisted up and gotten pinched, meaning that they would have had to cut part of your intestines out! :eek3: :nono:

    yeah i know it was stupid, even though recovery from a hernia surgery is supposed to be only like 2-3 days, it took me almost 2 weeks to even be able to function by myself.
