I can't say I have ever done this before. I'm extremely passionate, but within that passion is a flame that dances.

@Germlat,
Poetry, The Universe, our feelings and our experiences are all very vague, it matters what you do with the shadow play.

@chai2,
Is it because you do not live life to a universal level, but rather, a personal one?

@vonny,
You'll do fine, Vonny. I've had one of those umbilical hernias repaired and am working toward getting scheduled for surgery on three more hernias in my abdominal muscles. One of mine has gotten so big, it looks like I have a volleyball under my clothes.

My mom, BBB also had a hernia repair last year. It was done as an outpatient surgery and she barely felt it afterwards.

The hardest part will be remembering no heavy lifting, bending or stretching for a couple weeks after surgery. After that, it will no longer hurt when you do those things like it did prior to surgery.

I was diagnosed with "at least 4 hernias"
and told to expect long lasting pain after surgery to install a mesh.

I rejected that.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks Butrflynet, that's very reassuring. I've had recurring problems for over six months now but it still came as a bit of a shock when my doctor mentioned the possibility of an umbilical hernia. I hadn't even thought of anything like that. Hopefully I will find out for sure later today.

@OmSigDAVID,
Hi David, does that mean you didn't have the surgery, or that you rejected the pain?

No, but I am aware
of that phenomenon.
I had no pain from any hernia. I have none now.
I have a bulge on the right side of my gut.

I guess I am grimacing and gritting my teeth because I wasted a lot of time today at an unnecessary hospital appointment - but perhaps I ought to be smiling! The specialist gave me an all-clear verdict - no sign of an umbilical hernia!

Grit your teeth and smile. Good news sometimes is necessary.

@vonny,
That's what second opinions are for. The good news is it wasn't a waste if you avoided an unnecessary surgery.

Glad you had the specialist consult.
