    Probably just a bad bruise. If it still hurts after few days then might be wise to check it out.

    Hmm, the pain could be from initial nerve response.
    The nerves around the stomach lining I believe is called postganglionic neurons.

    But judging from where you circled the photo, it seems likely that you've hit near your intestinal tract.

    Note that I am no medical professional. There are common sense in how to deal with injuries you do, the basics.

    The first thing is what you just did, assess the situation. Does it hurt to the point you can't walk without difficulty? Are you able to sit down? What is it you do that might increase the pain?

    Don't stretch it, some people think that stretching makes it feel better and relax "the muscles", but in fact it does not. It tends to mess it up even further if it is serious.

    Usually when it's a minor injury but does not involve immediate medical attention, you should apply ice on it for a good amount of time. 30mins on the injury. A couple more times the next few days. You can never go wrong with putting ice on it. But you CAN go wrong putting heat on it.

    And to quote Dr. House "It's not lupus. Nope, it's never lupus."

    Sorry to hear those unfortunate circumstances on you. Since receiving a CI, I've been observing others responses in the CI/HA section for awhile. Since you are also a CI recipient, you seemed to make the most sense to me, so I came to know you by your posts. I'm no stalker LOL. Just read what is out in public view, hope you have a good holiday! :D
