Worried about my husband..
« on: April 06, 2014, 09:41:48 AM »
I've been on this site for years and have gotten great comfort from you guys. My H.A. is relatively under control. It rears it ugly head during certain times of the year but for the most part I am able to deal with it.
Right now I am worried sick over my husband. He is 49 and two weeks ago started having pain in his back and right side. He went to a few doctors who said it was a pulled muscle. He is an 18-wheeler truck driver. Last week a new doctor found a considerably sized mass in his abdomen under his ribcage on the right side. He is going for further testing on Tuesday. I'm a wreck, but won't show it, because I don't want to upset him. I've been googling like crazy however. He won't talk about it at all. He doesn't want to talk about what "it could be", especially because we have a daughter graduating college in a month and a son graduating high school. He doesn't want them to be upset.
I'm so afraid for him. I've worried myself to death for over the 24 years we've been together and he's always been my rock, now he's actually the one who might have something. I find this so ironic.
Please  tell me what benign things this could be!!!

The doctor found it when she examined his abdomen. She is sending him for an ultrasound on Tuesday.

It could be a very large cyst....I know a blogger who had a benign cyst the size of a basketball.

When u say back pain, did your husbands back pain hurt to touch or was it deep inside like it was out of reach?

He thought he had twisted his back at work. When it wasn't getting any better at all he went to the orthopedic who said it was a pulled muscle. He said that this wasn't like any other time he had hurt his back at work before.  He was looking at himself in the mirror and noticed that he looked lopsided. He started feeling around and thought he felt something. When nothing was helping with the pain, we went back to the internist who did an abdominal exam and felt an obvious mass. I thought maybe it was a hernia, but she said that she didn't feel the hole.
I'm hoping that maybe the intestines have come through and blocked the hole.
I don't know how he can just be so calm!
