Fat containing umblical hernia from a previous surgery recntly start getting pain above my navel area but my pcp ant takin it serious hurts thoe hlp?

Pain at the site of a hernia is an indication for repair. When standing or exerting, it is possible for other organs/intestines to protrude other than simply omental fat. Ask your doctor for a referral to a surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My daughter took omnacortil 40 on dr's advice just one month back & now she is having an acute stomach pain in just above her navel area. She is 17yr ?
Likely NOT related: Omnacortil is branded steroid called prednisolone, a commonly used medication which has powerful antiinflammatory effect. Typically it used for a short period of time, 3-7 days range. It has a relatively short half-life and thus out of the system quite quickly after last dose. As a result, i would not pin this med as cause of her abd pain. Get her evaluated as soon as feasible. Good luck. ...Read more
