Post opartum hernia?
I've had a pain about 2" to the right of my belly button since a day or 2 after giving birth 4wks ago. The pain isn't constant, but when I bend over its like a sharp pinching pain. It hasn't improved or gotten worse in time. I did have a uterine infection after birth and have taken a round of antibiotics. The only other symptom I've noticed is gas! I've never been a gassy person, but since giving birth I've passed has numerous times a day regardless of what I eat. I will be scheduling my 6wk checkup soon (for 2wks from now) so I will address it then but I don't know if this requires surgery if I should go In sooner or what. Any experience with hernias or symptoms would be helpful!
