19th February 2007 10:25Since he was born DS has had small hard lump on his abdomen and I had asked in the hospital a few times if it was anything to worry about but they said no so I didnt question it further although have been keeping an eye on it. However it never went away so today I asked my own GP while I was there for an appointment for myself if she would take a look at it. DS is as pleasant as anything anyway and thought she was going to tickle him like we do so started giggling and smiling to the doc and I was so pleased when she said how lovely a baby he was. But she felt the lump and said she wants me to make another appointment as she thinks its a hernia. She did say that it isnt hurting him and to her it doesnt look serious at all and that it is something he will probably grow out of, but Im still really worried even though she was really reassuring. Has anyone else got any experience of hernias in little boys?
