However, there are many other possibilities, and can only be diagnosed from an in person physical exam.

Possible Hernia: By your description it sounds as if you may have a ventral hernia. I would like to know if you ever had any surgery in the past, including laparoscopic surgery. Frequently, with laparoscopic surgery a small incision is made around the umbilicus (belly button) and it is not uncommon that a piece of omentum (fat from inside the bell) or bowel could get caught. I would recommend a surgical evaluation ...Read more

Hernia: Perhaps the most serious problem would be an hernia that is being pinched by the abdominal wall. If the bowel is pinched one can become constipated as food passage is delayed. With severe pinching and blockage, digested food can be regurgitation. If symptoms persist then see a doctor; sooner than later?

Abdominal lump: This can be an infected insect bite or an umbilical hernia. Either of these can become an emergency. If an abscess is created by a resistant strain of bacteria, it can become a deadly infection. If, on the other hand, it is an umbilical hernia, that can become incarcerated and also become a surgical emergency. It could also be a fatty tumor, benign and harmless. See a doctor ASAP to diagnose. ...Read more

You: You are describing pain where people with appendicitis localize their symptoms. If you were seen early on in the process, a ct and blood count could both miss the diagnosis. Since you posted your question 3 days ago, I assume things have gotten worse if you have appendicitis. Sometimes the appendix is located posteriorly behind the cecum and a ruptured appendix seals off creating an abscess. Patients with retrocecal appendicitis are often difficult to diagnose and the diagnosis is missed on the initial evaluation. If you are still having pain, you need to be re-evaluated. If examination is suggestive of a surgical abdomen, you should have exploratory surgery regardless of the ct results.
Physicians have become too dependent on imaging results and surgeons may wait too long to go in, resulting in a more complicated post surgical course and more morbidity. ...Read more

AnticlottingBleeding: All anti-clotting agents slow blood clotting, needles puncture blood vessels, thus significant possibility of hematoma at location of injected anti-clotting agent because vessels oozed longer around needle tip with high local concentration of anti-clotting agent. While impossible to answer your question with such limited information, what you describe is not surprising. ...Read more
