I'm post-op for an umbilical hernia. And currently battling bronchitis

I'm post-op for an umbilical hernia. And currently battling bronchitis and a sinus infection. I had a really bad coughing fit a little bit ago now I'm peeing blood. Can this wait until tomorrow for me to call the doctor or do I need to go to the emergency room?

I have an umbilical hernia, wondering if it is better to live with it versus the risks of complications with the surgery and especially complications post op with hernia repairs. I also feel it is best, if possible, to avoid foreign or man-made objects internally. Eventually it might get to bad I will have no choice. I don t know if these generally enlarge, or get more uncomfortable, painful.?

Although this really isn t what this is here for I m super desperate for help and hoping this may help me. Trying to find a plastic or general surgeon who accepts Blue Shield PPO (not covered California) in the Los Angeles County. I have been to 4 ER s in the past week in desperate pain trying to have surgery done on a EXTREMELY painful hernia. It is a umbilical hernia that is not incarcerated/strangulated or otherwise considered to be an emergency surgery however I absolutely cannot deal with the pain any longer and need it done as soon as physically possible, praying this week, as both mentally and physically I cannot go on any longer because of the pain. I m having some hesitation because I am a previous head injury patient and suffer from chronic pain as a result, and on 10mg Oxycontin 2x/day and 15mg of Oxycodone 3x/day to manage the pain. Because of the high amount of pain meds, ER doctors have been unable to manage the hernia pain at home until the current surgeon can do it (April 28). I also am 290lbs, making it also a little more complicated. The hernia on CT is considered to be small umbilical hernia with adipose tissue praying someone reads this and is compassionate to my situation and willing to do surgery on someone with the above issues. I can of course come in for examination, but because I ve seen so many people already, it would have to be someone willing to do it this week if they are comfortable with the exam, and be willing to do it in hospital as post-operative pain control likely needs to be managed by pain management for a day or 2.

Hello, I am 11 days post op for umbilical hernia surgery. I have been having red blood on my tissue paper after bowel movements for days now. However today the bleeding was so bad, I thought I started my menstrual cycle. It was all in the toilet bowl and on my tissue. I don t know what to do.
