Reply To: Need advice whether to have surgery or not.
Waiting just does not make sense.
Your hernia will eventually get bigger and bigger.
Waiting is only delaying the decision time.
It is understandable that you are concerned about complications after a hernia repair.
Obviously it is important to have a surgery with few complications.
If so, it is better to search for a hospital or doctor who has a low-complication hernia operation, not just delaying the operation.
In general, tissue repair is safer than mesh repair.
So try to find a doctor who is good at tissue repair.
I think that’s what you need to do at this point.
