I fell two weeks ago, carring a full just planted flower pot. I feel on the rim of the pot and hit my stomach; plus hit my head on cement sidewalk! I was taken to hospital where the did a cat scan on my head, no concusion. But have been having terrible pains in my stomach. I think I have gastrituis.
