Reply To: Researching surgeons – what questions to ask
Thanks! That’s great info. Most friends who’ve had the surgery always say ‘sooner rather than later’ but perhaps they simply weren’t aware of the possibility of ‘watch and wait’ or had very symptomatic hernias. I imagine if I DO get surgery I should find someone that seems aware of all the things you’ve mentioned and have considered them. Must be some knowledgeable and experienced surgeons aware of these problems and care enough about their patients to discuss them. But I’ll be sure to bring this up. And perhaps try and steer clear of any cutting-edge, latest-and-greatest mesh products and ask for something tried and true if possible. Will find out tomorrow hopefully what’s going on and start considering what to do.
