Reply To: Researching surgeons – what questions to ask
Just got another opinion from my old PCP and he says the same as the first – that it doesn’t appear that things have broken through just yet and though there might be some weakened areas in the abdomen/inguinal canal, he’s not detecting a full hernia yet. Very small weak spot that may or may not eventually become a full hernia. So two opinions from non-surgeons saying leave it alone, and another opinion from surgeon saying repair it (and that i likely have bilateral). Very confused at this point. Made appt with another surgeon at another practice to see what he says and then will decide probably one way or another. Would be a real shame to get surgery while having minor or no symptoms most of the time and not have a full blown hernia.
