Hernia: It is reassuring the CT was normal. Have you had the surgeon examin the area since it is tender? The nause and diarrhea could be unrelated and due to a viral infection. If you are able to keep food down, stay hydrated and symptoms are improving then I would hold off on any further work up and see how things go.
