    Not sure what to do – surgery or not

    Hi Norton,

    I had a hernia that a quote expert tried to repair and things went very south and ruined 2 years of my health and enjoyment. It looks like you might have read some of my posts. My quote top surgeon and hospital had a known 25% post surgical pain issue after 1 year. It was published as a medical study and I think I gave the link here once.

    I also recommend the book Unaccountable as a starting point but it seems no one wants to take the time to read it.

    Again if I was told of the 25 to over 30 percent post surgical pain maybe for the rest of my life or a 10-20 percent reoccurrence rate and at your age I would go to a tissue specialist.

    Good luck on you decision.
