User rating for this question
I have a harder upper stomach. My stomach is hard even when I lay down. When I feel it layingdown the hardness has an oval feeling shape. It never hurts. I have been on the XXXXXXX diet since May. I have lost approximately 20lbs. I am 52 and still overweight. I do not smoke and do not do drugs. I do drink alcohol. I have high blood pressure that is under control with medication (7 years). I had pancretitis 6 years ago caused by high blood pressure medicine side effect. My gallbladder was removed and the pancretitis went away.
