Default I have a hernia

After some mild discomfort these last few months and then sleepless nights this last week worrying, I had my scan today and was told and all credit to the doctor for guessing overt the phone, I have a hernia.

Have to wait to hear from the doctor as to what happens next. Only mild discomfort, I can do everything so not too bothered.
I may have done it at the beginning of first lockdown moving 8ft concrete posts by myself. I lifted keeping back straight and bending at my legs to try and reduce injury, I thought all had gone well.

GD is correct Ian - the ops are simple and very effective. I had an umbilical (belly button) hernia since I was a teenager. Never gave me any problem so every medic that looked at it said not to mess with it.

Then one day a few years ago I was helping my son lift some old tonne bags with old thatch into the back of our trailer and we forgot (never actually even thought about it) that it had rained heavily and the old mushy straw was as much water as anything else.

It was really, really heavy - and as I lifted it I felt a tearing sensation like undoing a zip behind my belly button - no pain - just a feeling that I was strangely “loose”.

GP was brilliant - sent me to A&E next day having arranged a second opinion Appt with the duty surgeon and I was operated on a few weeks later. I now have an internal mesh and a small scar.

I’m so much better now it is amazing.

Had a double hernia of the crutch when at sea and had a happy couple of weeks in the Dreadnought Seamans Hospital in Gravesend for op and recovery. After the op done laugh! (It hurts).

well NHS efficiency, had a ext a little while ago from the doctor to say a hernia and I should phone to discuss. No waiting a week for results and as it was gone 7.30 in the evening someone was working late.

Not worried about the op. I'd be happy to watch, more embarrassing having the ladies
running the scanner down there.

I got mine in 1990 from a coughing fit, it was four years before I did anything about it. I got the surgery in 1994 and had the mesh and Internal suture, you must ask for internal suture as it leaves a neat line that heals fast and has less pain. I still lift out engines and carry heavy things and I've never had a blip in the area of the surgery. I will tell you one thing, when you get the date for the surgery you should eat soup for the few days before it. After the surgery, eat soup for a week because you won't be able to push down without pain, solid foods make harder work.

Did they tell you what hernia you have Ian, any operation will depend on where it is and how much it effects your daily activities. It maybe a case of watch and wait Ian.

I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia 10 years ago, thankfully it doesn't give me any problems. They recently thought I had an inguinal hernia, but decided it wasn't, this would have explained my other problem.

As for the embarrassment, don't worry about it. I've bared all many times now, female and male doctors examining my bits. It's when you wake up from an
anesthesia wearing tight netting see through pants, and then you realise the nurses must have put you in them while you were asleep, sort of put's a smile upon one's face.

Yes - damn sporting of you Wes given your obvious discomfort. The way you displayed the problem was wonderful. Not sure I could get my leg up on the table like that!

SWMBO and I were most impressed, as was everyone else in the restaurant I am sure.......

. LOL!! Get well soon! And let’s keep laughing!

And on a serious note - if just one of us gets something “odd” checked out rather than ignore it, because you have been brave enough to talk about it, then we all owe you one.





(Not literally of course.....not sure that transplant has been done?.....)
