Umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia and femoral hernia have swelling which increases on standing, coughing, sneezing or straining. Pain may be present or absent. Mild discomfort is usual.

An hiatal hernia will have;

a) Acid reflux

b) Heartburn.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

I'm back. I had my blood drawn for hiv rna on 31st October
I'm back. I had my blood drawn for hiv rna on 31st October 2017 at the LabCorp and the next morning I breastfed my baby of 5 month. After that I heard that LabCorp reuse needles so I called the lab and asked the woman who drew my blood what kind of needle it was and if it was covered by plastic her answer was I opened in front of you and it was sterile. I tried to remember what I saw during and remembered that there was a red stain between the needle connecting the cap and that scarred me more so I stopped breastfeeding n called my baby's pediatrician's office to get the PEP in case. the nurse there confirmed that with LabCorp we can't guarantee anything but PEP can't be provided without proof. Now since last week after a month and 12 days, I have chills and mild fever and my baby has mild fever. My question is : what are the chances to get through breasfeeding if I was infected with hiv through the needle and what are the chances of getting it from contaminated needle? And how to prove this kind of procedure cause I feel it has happened. … read more
