    Hernia

    Well, it seems I have a hernia and will be having surgery next week. I'll have to treat Willie and the Boys differently for a few weeks.

    Actually, under my padding they don't really show anyway, it's just the feeling of having nothing between my legs that I wil miss.

    One repair on each side about 10 years apart. Just do what the doctor says and take it easy on yourself. Prayers going out for your quick recovery. - Camilla

    OMG! I had forgotten all about my double hernia operation until I read your post, Krisi! Hope in a year you'll have forgotten yours, too!
    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!

    As others have said, just follow the doctors orders. I've had 3 hernia surgeries over the years. The technology has improved a lot since my first one years ago. One thing has not changed, the definition of "minor surgery" depends a great deal on which end of the scalpel you're on! Take care.

    Thanks everyone. This will be my second, on the other side. I'm a little surprised, this will be in a "surgery center", not a hospital. I'm not clear on what the difference is. The first was combined with removal of my gall bladder.

    The big problem is, we just moved and I have boxes to move and things to han and now I can't do it. My wife is doing her best, but some stuff she just can't do.

    The advantage of a surgery center is lower cost and less chance of infection type complications as you don't have as many sick people around a surgery center. It is much easier to keep infected people away from a surgery center.

    The disadvantage is that you don't have the expertise and equipment available at a full service hospital if there are complications. A surgery center may not have expensive imaging machines found in hospitals.
    A hospital may be a better choice if there is a high likelihood of complications.

    I had my colonoscopy at a surgery center. Eye surgery is typically done at surgery centers.

    Kris, I have had three hernia operations. The first was old school where they cut me open. The other two (one on each side) were laparoscopic which were much easier. Good luck with yours.

    This is a timely subject for me. I had an inguinal hernia repaired about 20 years ago on one side. There was a slight bulge on the other side but the doc said I should just watch it, strengthen my abdominal muscles and I should be ok for a number of years. Sooner or later it would probably give me problems, though. This last week I've been having major pain in that area and the bulge has suddenly doubled or more in size. I'm probably going to have to go under the knife again. Meanwhile I found that one of my old gaffs, which I don't use anymore, works good to hold everything in. Being a CD has practical value sometimes. The first surgery went ok but I had a major complication afterwards. Frostbite!!!! After the surgery, they sent me home with an ice pack for the wound area to keep the swelling down. I was still woozy from the anesthetic and fell asleep in the car with the ice pack on the wound. It froze to my skin where it was touching bare skin outside the bandage. I had to melt the ice off my skin and it took some skin with it. It was VERY painful. The hernia healed in a few weeks. The frostbite took almost a year to completely heal. Not fun.

    You need to find someone to help with the move until you heal. Just listen to what the doctor's say and you will be back to normal in no time. I wish you a speedy recovery!

    June 2020 I had 4 hernias repaired. The surgeon told the anesthesiologist to give me a nerve block. That really helped the first few days.

    Update- I found the truss (I think it's called) that I used for my first one until I had the surgery. I wore it yesterday and it helps to hold everything where it belongs and I did some work around the house. Surgery is on Thursday so I'll have a good excuse to lay around doing nothing.

    I was a bit surprised at the forms I had to fill out, especially concerning prescriptions. Apparently, some people have abused prescribed pain medicine in the past.

    I'm back home and healing. They told me to wear tight fitting underwear to hold my testicles in place. I didn't mention it, but my panties seem to do the trick. Also, the spanx hold the ice pack really well!

    My panties were so comfortable during my recovery. I wouldn't have worn anything else.
