umbilical hernia require surgery? in need of the right remedy for me!!!! please help!I went to the ER about two weeks ago, had a workup there because of severe pain that measured between 1 and 10 at around 8 in my abdominal area behind my belly button that was detected by an abdominal CT scan an umbilical hernia. They said it showed fat protrusion in the abdominal wall and showed impacted bowels, as I had not been moving much, and because of the pain in my abdomen, they gave me morphine only constipating me further. Also had blood tests with slightly elevated white blood cell count. The CT showed the umbilical hernia that has obviously been there for some years but has increased in size. Worse when standing, better when lying down. Worse at certain times. I also have had a history of IBS or IBD showing inflammation of my intestines (likely from the removal of my gallbladder. I have received all vaccinations as a child. Have allergies to codine and wheat products and dairy, and drugs for my headaches like Demerol and ibuprofen irritate my gut further, as well as perhaps antidepressants have caused much inflammation on top of a history of depression and unresolved emotional stress (i.e. family troubles including broken marriage, feelings of abandonment resulting, insecurity, low self image, low self worth, profound loneliness, feelings of being deserted, feeling trapped, betrayal, financial stress and insecurity, sleeplessness, helplessness, hopelessness, restlessness, agitation, anger, frustration, insomnia, w/OCD's,) Have had much family contention even since a child, (ie abandonment by my mother, siblings, feelings of loss, loneliness, anger at my mother, sexual abuse by my older brother, abandonment by my ex husband leaving me destitute, loss of my children recently who abandoned me, financial ruin, feeling destitute, despair, and recently loss of my father in the last 3 years prior to that physical and emotional abuse of my ex-husband who left me destitute. Have a history of past infections such as measles ad H1N1. PTSD's (choking most recent and rushed to the hospital almost losing my life). Lost gallbladder at age 9 and had to stay in hospital after from infection while in the hospital, Have relied on demerol, pherenol, ibuprofen, tylenol for migraines and antidepressants that only contributed to the IBD or IBS now causing constipation from the usual spasmatic bowel causing diarrhea i get that chronically makes me run to the bathroom over anything I eat, even after eating a grape or after brushing my teeth. Also had taken cholestyramine for the IBD. What's now causing the distention and swelling of my belly and now constipation? The CT scan of my abdomen showed a lot of impacted stool and a umbilical hernia behind my belly button. How do I treat this? And how do I treat the hernia and constipation that is presenting now and emotional issues as well as the digestive problems? I was given more drugs such as morphine and gravol causing more sluggish gut motility while ER docs were trying to purge my colon with many oral and rectal fleet solutions to try to purge my bowel and the oral solutions like pico and go lightly that barely did anything. Wouldnt that defeat the purpose of the purge if Im loaded up and doped up with morphine among other drugs? After all the drinks they gave me and fleet enemas, I still am not releasing much bowel sometimes moving out only little sandy amounts of brown sediment at the bottom of the toilet even after all the enemas I didnt go much. Two weeks later, I am even taking lots of vitamin C, like Vitamin C flushes, hydrating myself with lots of water, making dietary changes, increasing fiber with little help. What is likely happening? What would you recommend or prescribe to help the digestive issues and hernia and what is likely causing all this so an effective treatment plan can be drawn up? Is there non-surgical modalties to treat this including the umbilical hernia?
