    future of inguinal repair and PT

    I agree with what you are saying. I haven’t had my surgery yet and am worried about the side effects from the surgery being worse than the actual hernia….But I feel that I am not moving forward because my small inguinal hernia could get larger and could strangulate. If it strangulates it is immediate surgery and could be an unknown surgeon. I try to just remember that all surgeries have risks and this one is no different. I am currently doing PT to strengthen my adductor muscle and then I can schedule my surgery “any time”…I have been told there is no rush. I am very anxious though…I wish there were clearer guidelines for such a common surgery. Something in my gut just keeps telling me to hold off…I haven’t heard back about the yoga exercises yet.
