    I had an inguinal hernia years ago. Not much to getting it taken care of, really - it was outpatient surgery so I was pretty much in and out of the hospital. I was a bit sore for a couple of days afterwards, but it was nothing serious. Good luck! [​IMG]

    Given that the surgery is relatively minor in terms of most surgeries, my advice would be that unless it is moderately bothering you, I wouldn't have the surgery. Why take the risks if nothing is bothering you with regard to the hernia?

    What EXACTLY is a hernia? i read up on the net when that other hernia thread popped up, but i still dont get it. Is it when like sections of your intestine pops up through your abs? Thats as clear as I saw it...
