      This is another recurrent reading: hernias cannot get smaller, they always get bigger with time….the argument is often used to sell a surgery sooner rather than later. The idea behind is that a broken wall cannot get back to being unbroken. Or that a something loose can only loosen more…but is it really so with a part of the human body?

      @alephy
      Worry more about symptoms.
      If the hernia is not causing any trouble, it does not need repair.
      Also, work on getting the body in shape. Stop smoking. Get Skinny.
