I had to go and develop a freakin hernia. I started having some pain on Monday, yesterday it was a little more noticeable and by today, every time I coughed, sneezed, laughed, etc it would hurt. So I found myself a new primary doctor since I hadnt seen one in a while and was able to make an appt for lunchtime today. She confirmed my worst fear. Based on my symptoms, I had a feeling that was what I had.
Unfortunately, there is no other option then to have surgery. One of the advantages of working in a hospital, including working in the OR for awhile, is that I had worked with many of the surgeons. One of the better general surgeons is also a triathlete so I went ahead and made an appt to see him on Tuesday. I will let you guys know how it goes. I suspect I may not have to immediately have surgery, but I think I would be better off doing it before it gets worse. Until I find out, I am going to limit my training to swimming, though I will still do the Peachtree RR on Saturday since I was looking to take it easy and run with Cathy anyways.
