      I think it’s right that Mike M is Korea bound soon, for Dr Kang repair. Hope it goes well

      Thanks William!

      I am heading out soon and should be done with surgery sometime early next week.

      Craziest thing started to happen about 2 weeks ago. I went from medium symptoms to nothing at all as of today. It all started when I started laying on my right side at night. I still know it’s there but it is 110% better.

      Going to update as soon as I can when the operation is completed!

      The symptoms come and go in my case. Do you still have bulge? Which side is it on?

      Mine is my right side and I usually lay on left side. I could try lying on the side the hernia is.

      I did once read flat on back is best but I cannot sleep like that!

      I never had a “bulge” that you could see or even feel except when I coughed.

      It feels like it is popping out to the left towards my upper thigh near the top of the hesselbach triangle when I cough then retracts immediately.

      I am pretty sure when I was having “symptoms” it was lower than that spot which makes sense? I am speculating that laying down on my right side (opposite of the direction I felt the hernia was moving) allowed the hernia to retract or regress?

      Who knows though it could have had nothing to do with it just really saw a dramatic change when I laid down on my right side 2 nights in a row.

      I am babying myself until I get to Seoul and so far it is working! lol

      Brilliant Mike M, looking forward to reading it. Thank you.

      Hoping you’re not feeling too sore also.
