Patient :So I am a 33 you old male who works in the furniture moving business while working when I am taking deep breath so I felt this sharp pain lower abdomen only when breathing in at the end. When I got home I was in a little discomfort and noticed that my belly button wasn't as much of an inny as before so I when to the ER and the doctor pushed in on it took him a little bit but then I felt this really odd feeling and he said I had an umbilical-hernia it took him a few seconds to get it pushed and it came right out so he told me to go to my primary doctor and not to lift anything heavy so I go to doctor she doesn't even touch the area has me do an x ray cause I hadn't pooped in 2 days and an ultrasound she says everything is fine and probably a bruise so what should I do go back to work or go to another doctor
