extreme pain in upper abdomen

Well, I had the usual lower abdominal pain for a few weeks, a lot of trouble with my bladder/bleeding that resolved in the third week, was pretty much off my pain meds...until 5 days ago.
I was feeling good and thinking about getting some light excercise. Here is what I did: a little jig in the kitchen, tightened my abs while leaning over the sink brushing my teeth, and walked around pulling in my stomach muscles as I have been losing weight without trying.
I am in horrible pain now just above my navel, above the big incision where the camera went during the surgery. This part didn't even hurt before until now!
I have gone back on my pain meds and can hardly move or reach even slightly without it causing a lot of pain.
This is a big setback and I am trying to deal with it as I work full time. Spent most of the weekend resting, but today it's still very painful.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is it a muscle strain or did I rip something? I go to my follow up in one week.

You might want to call your doctor and see if you can get in earlier. The fact you are in so much pain is concerning. I hope you feel better soon. Please keep us posted.

Call your doctor or go to ER - that happened to me and it was a strangulated hernia..... ( tissue caught in the opening of the muscle)

Oh dear that is serious. Well it's a few days later and I am feeling much better, although I was pretty worried it was a lot of pain in that 1 spot. I just rested a lot and didn't do anything. Thank you for your concern and advice
