The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
“I myself would opt for immediate emergency room care in the case of abdominal pain, and otherwise letting it alone. Anesthesia would be my worry.”
My aunt indeed has stomach pain. That’s the point.
Non-painful hernia: not dangerous. You can leave it alone.
Painful hernia: dangerous. You can still live with it and be lucky: it might not reach the point of strangulation.
Anyway, we’ve decided against preventative operation.
I prayed all night last night.
Things are much better today. My aunt, full of energy, no pain. (Yesterday a lot of pain from the hernia).
We’ve decided against preventative operation. The plan is: if in the future, the hernia gets closer and closer to strangulation, then I’ll try to make an appointment with a surgeon. The rate of success of hernia operation is higher by appointment, than in ER. When you’ve made an appointment, you try to choose a surgeon you trust.
