Hi all! I had debulking surgery and chemo in 2013 and more chemo at the beginning of this year (2015) for a recurrence. I seem to have a hernia as seen on CT scans but my belly is looking more and more deformed by the day ... it now looks like a big bubble and it feels like my 'innards' are falling forward when I stand up! (It is not too bad when I lay down). I am generally OK just a bit tired sometimes but I wondered does anyone else have this? I also get a right lower abdominal pain and pain that feels like it is in the ascending colon from time to time ... also tightness under both sides of my ribs ... but these pains go off after a few days if I take peppermint capsules and a simple diet. Strange! When I have mentioned these pains to my oncologist (and GP) in the past all he said was that 'he was not worried' as my abdomen felt soft to him ... I am not unduly worried but just wondered if it was common ... or if I am just wierd?!!! Thanks guys x
