      I read somewhere that when it comes to inguinal hernia surgery doctors as patients prefer to not have surgery and opt for watchful waiting instead….I wonder if it’s true….hiw many doctors and surgeons git a mesh? 🤔

      Us senator Rand Paul who is also a MD (ophthalmologist) recently had a hernia from an injury and went to shouldice clinic in Canada for a pure tissue repair … obviously he knew quite well the inherent risk of mesh and didn’t want to take any chance …
