April's Newest Diagnosis

Well, this post isn't about the is about me. I have been having pretty bad back pain and stomach pain (around my belly button) since the boys were born. My OB had told me it would go away, but it just hasn't yet. So Ben convinced me to get an appointment with my regular doctor, so that is where I went this afternoon. She did her exam, talked about the pain and all. The final diagnosis...ventral hernia. This will require surgery to repair! So I have to schedule an appointment with a general surgeon now and see when it needs to be done and what the recovery will be like. I know that I won't be able to pick up the boys for the first 2 weeks at least so the timing for the surgery will have to be done around when Tracy (best friend) is out of school and back from her honeymoon or when my mom is in town for Tracy's wedding. Hopefully the surgeon will say it is OK to wait until then (July). I will update when I know more.
