  • 2nd inguinal hernia scheduled for Thursday 0800

    I was right. It is a hernia. My 2nd this year. I am scheduled for surgery on Thursday.

    I asked the surgeon why he went with an open repair.

    he said because I am a deputy he felt it was a more secure repair. Open, stitched then mesh. He is doing the same on the right.

    ugh. 6 weeks light duty again.

    Take care.
