Today I went to get my pre-op work did for my surgery next Thursday. I picked up a 5 gallon water bottle at work and felt a pop behind my belly button. No pain, just felt strange. Then, my belly button started "filling in" and would pop out when I cough. Went to the Dr and he confirmed that it was a hernia. Thursday the 13th he's going to poke holes in me and turn a robot loose on me. He says he can fix me up as good as new. I'm going to ask if he can liposuction some of this gut fat out while he's in there.
