What was it that ripped, and is it bad?

Asked by invic (110points) September 20th, 2009

My brother sneezed and something bursted behind his belly-button, some sort of eploding organ he describes it as. SO what is it?

It sounds like some kind of hernia. He needs to see a physician, not a Jellie.

Hernia, have him see a doctor.

Maybe a hernia, maybe just a pulled muscle. However, as others have said, a doctor would be best able to figure it out.

It is unlikely an organ burst. If it is a hernial tear, however, it will not heal without repair.

and even if he does have hernia surgery, like I did, it is possible to rip it again, like I did. Now I just live with the pain, since I cannot afford to take the time off to recover. See a doctor, and get a REAL diagnosis.

If it was an organ burst he’d probably be close to dead right now. It’s most likely a hernia or, if he’s lucky just a muscle tear. Take him to a doctor.
