    Trying to Get A Hernia Diagnosis

    Thanks for your response. The bilateral repairs were done laparoscopically using mesh and, according to the surgeon were successful. She is up and moving, although as expected, not comfortable. One side is virtually pain free, while he other is quite painful. She has a script for Naproxen that she used for the pain prior to the long attempt to get a diagnosis.

    I do intend to call the surgeon to follow up, as she requested I do. Additionally, we have a follow up appointment next week.

    I just didn’t understand why one side is sooo good and the other side is equally not.

    I do know, though, that she is absolutely on the path to recovery and being without pain.

    Thank you again
