And The Doc Says...

Chad had his appointment with Dr. Swain this morning in reference to the knot that appeared after a painful sneeze. The knot has grown to a large golf ball sized sac exactly where the hernia was.

Dr. Swain performed an Ultra Sound and while he admitted he couldn't tell if the mesh was still intact by the images obtained, he was confident that it is likely just a sac of fluid/blood/etc., that will hopefully resolve on its own.

It could take months but we have a follow-up appointment with him in two weeks. For now, we're hoping for the best. Chad asked about having it drained but I guess the risk of infection is too great, so we're going to be patient. (I suck at being patient!)

Thanks for your continued love and prayers. xo

  2. Hoping it's just serous fluid that happens often with surgery. No more sneezing, Chad!
