I noticed a new entry in the littany of things that are wrong with my body-- while changing my wafer this afternoon I noticed there was a thumbprint sized DENT in my stomach about 4-5 inches straight down from my umbilicus. I have been putting on a little belly fat and the dent is inline with where some people get a little fat fold, but it's not a fold, it's very definitely a dent. I don't think it was there even this morning. I vaguely remember having a weird, short-lived pain in that area maybe a week or two ago, but nothing looked wrong at the time. Last night I helped a neighboor move and carried boxes around for several hours; I've also been going to the gym and doing resistance training for the past month or so.
Does anybody have a guess as to what might be going on? I'm really worried because I know people with ostomies are at risk for things like hernias, but nothing's sticking OUT. I think I had a laproscope incision in this spot from at least one of my surgeries, though, so I know that's the kind of thing that predisposes you.
I scheduled an appointment with my doctor but I'm really freaked out at the moment. No pain though. Idk. Just please let me know if anyone has seen something like this before.
