Distended, sore abdomen. - August 30th 2010, 12:10 AM

So, my stomach is pretty distended and hard. It hurts to move and it's sore to touch.
Upon calling Planned Parenthood's 24/7 hotline, they told me they CAN'T tell if it's anything serious because I haven't taken pain meds and to simply take ibuprofen and Tylenol because my uterus might just be trying to push out the rest of my lining.
Problem is: I had a ultrasound that showed it already shed the lining. There's nothing to push out. I really hate this Planned Parenthood and they don't listen too well.

So, TH, can someone try to reassure my mind?
SHOULD I be pretty concerned on this?! I mean... Everything else is normal. It's just my abdomen that's the problem. Upon my sister touching my stomach, she said it felt like a tennis ball. It's NOT tennis ball sized though. It starts at my lower abdomen and goes up to just below my belly button. I already sat in a hot bath and used a heating pad to try to ease the swelling down a bit to no avail.

My nerves are haywire with this. It's not too painful where I can't bare it, it's just extremely uncomfortable and weird..

Do you think I can make it until the 13th? That's when I have a doctor's appointment scheduled... Or should I make an additional one for this?
I know you guys aren't doctors, but I need reassurance.

Personally IMO I would say make an appt with your GP and get it checked sooner rather than later. It could be nothing, but on the other hand it could be something. Have you had any injuries or trauma occur?
