Red Hot Chili Peppers- Scar tissue

Yeah, no hernia, just some scar tissue. It was quite interesting when I went for the ultrasound yesterday. The tech asked me to show her where on my abdomen I felt the area in question. I lifted my shirt and showed her, she saw my scars and said, "so you had surgery?" My reply, "yes almost 7 months ago." She starts with the ultrasound and suddenly this look comes accross her face and she's trying to look calm, I can tell. She moves the wand several different ways, she turns the screen away from me, then she finally says, "what kind of surgery did you have?" I said, "I have a Lap Band." She then makes a huge sigh and says,"Thank God, I thought they left something in there after surgery!" It was funny and then the Radiologist came in and looked too, my port was cool looking and she said she's glad to know how well it shows up on ultrasound, because they usually do fills under x-ray when they have trouble locating a port, but she said this would be so much easier. Hmmm. Anyway, my port was attached perfectly flat on my abdominal wall and there was no scar tissue on my abdominal wall, actually it was between the fat layers and the muscle. Strange, but I'm glad it's nothing.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Big Hugs!
