Muscle strain or hernia?

Hey everyone, I’ve had my jpouch since 2020 and it’s been fairly problem free in that time. I had open surgery and have 1 large scar and 1 smaller stoma scare.  Currently I’m travelling in Brazil and after a yoga session plus random twisting, I seem to have either pulled the stomach muscles/scar tissues OR have given myself a hernia… or something else?

The pain is incredible, I’m not super hungry and when I eat the food really hurts as it moves passed the strained area (in between my stoma and longer scar). I can’t see any noticeable bulges, but I did have a bit of fever last night and the pain felt like I was recovering from bowel surgery again. It’s very tender to touch the area, but I can still go to the bathroom, I’m not nauseous and not vomiting

I’m going to email my doctors/STN in australia to see what they suggest but thought I’d see if anyone has had a similar experience they can share/shed some light on what this might be? Before I go to a Brazilian doctor/hospital…

thank you!
