Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Well the pain went away after 3 days ,but I grew like a lump on my side and the doctor said it's lipoma,like a mad of fat, but it does hurt But the thing is I haven't been able to poop for the past 5 days I feel bloated and I'm constipated

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
