Down, but not out

June 24th, 2012 · 1 Comment


Horrible robes...So, two years ago, in Las Vegas for ICAST, I noticed a small bump in my belly button. Never recalled it before. It didn’t hurt or anything, so I really didn’t think much about it. Fast-forward 22 months later, and now things are starting to get interesting. It wasn’t a constant thing, but I was suffering some pretty hardcore pain, usually when at work (you know, where I throw around 100# boxes of fish regularly). I noticed that lil lump would get solid.

Not a good sign.

As suspected, a doctor’s visit confirmed that I had a hernia. For two years, nothing wrong, but, for whatever reason, now it’s getting aggravated.

The other day was my surgery to get it all taken care of. I now have an innie instead of an outie again. My belly button is also reinforced with some medical mesh. Sweet.

I’ll be off the water for a few weeks, but the timing couldn’t be much better. I’ll be ready to fish while I’m in Florida for ICAST. Time to see what this redfish thing is all about…

    Not ideal, though at least you’re all fixed up now.
