6 days post anterior back surgery (after 2 posterior back surgerys) l5 s1 fusion with plate. On 4th day had a hard cough and it felt like my stomach exploded I emediantly screamed for help. My doc was gone they gave me a ct to see if my sturtures were still in place (doc on call said yes I was all right). But now I have extreme pain in groin and abdominal area think I might have a hernia now. Has anyone else had this and what are the signs. I have no big bulges but feels real tight by belly button. Are my suspisions right?
