HELP…Reducible or Incarcerated? How to tell?
I may be being paranoid but since getting a hernia I find I’m checking it frequently.
I’m not sure if it’s got slightly bigger or if it’s because I have put a bit of weight on, 4 to 6 lbs. Not even sure it has got bigger or if it’s just fear.
But the main worry is…. I’m sure when I used to lie down the bulge went almost immediately, now it seems to take some seconds. Maybe up to 30 or so.
Is it still classed as reducible?
How long should it take to go down when lying down?
How do you know when it is incarcerated?
Im not getting any extra symptoms I’m aware of – can it be painless and incarcerated?
Any answers please, I’ll be grateful as it’s very worrying. Thanks
