I can't answer any questions about post pardom symptoms, i have never given birth. I trying that this time around. But i can tell you that my nephew had a herneated belly button when he was a newborn. The Dr. let it go...said it was fine. It got very big and blue and purple. The Dr. still said it would probably fix itself. Over time, it did get a little better. The Dr. eventually put him on a medication containing a steroid. And it repaired itself. No surgery required. I'v also heard of other babies having it for the first year or so of life and it repairing itself. I would see the Dr. on Friday jsut to insure that nothing it severely wrong. Good Luck!
I would think if it's getting larger and turning color that the Dr would want to see her sooner than the end of the week. Did you list the symptoms she has and actually talk to the Dr or nurse or was it just the receptionist?
My son had a testicle that didn't drop on it's own and the Dr. said that usually with that problem a hernia is always present. What was odd was that the Dr., along with me and My husband, didn't see any sign of it before his surgery. When he came out of surgery we found out it was actually quite large. They did the surgery when he was about a year old and there was nothing to it. He was actually up running around that very same afternoon.
