    The doc is the one who diognosed me, & he recommended the band! He also said that the surgery was a nasty proceedure, with having to add a some sort of mesh over the problem area. And then if re-agravated, the surgery would need to be done again! So . . .
    Thanks CARLA, I quickly looked at the link through half closed eyes, & quickly then shut it off. I can't look at that stuff, especially if it involves me! I've never had surgery, & will do whatever it takes to keep it that way!

    I understand, I on the other had have had more surgeries than I can remember.
    I know its hard to look at but being informed and aware if you decide at some point that it's to uncomfortable and your ready you will have the knowledge you need to prepare for it. If nothing else go to WebMD - Better information. Better health. and learn about the procedure.

    Re: Abdominal Hernia

    I had it over 6 years ago and it is not that bad. Why risk it getting to the point where you have no choice?

    Was the abdominal band the answer for you?

    Well the problem is I'm a chicken, I've never had surgery to date, & I just can't bring myself to do "elective surgery"! When/if it gets unbearable, I'll have to rethink it.

    Anway, I was told I would need a mesh screen inserted over the area to fix the problem. Did you need a mesh screen to fix you up? Was it a major surgery, or were they able to do it Arthroscopy ?

    Cars, as long as it is not causing you problems, you will be okay not having the surgery. But if it starts becoming painful and interfering with digestive process, then you will have to get it fixed. Now the question to ask yourself, is if it is better to just do it, or wait till you have a strangulated gut. And no, mesh isnt always used. It is quite an individual case by case thing.

    Yeah, that's kind of my way of thinking. It's wrong I know, My motto has always been: If it ani't broke, don't fix it"! Right now, it is damaged, when it's broke, I'll have no choice! It is very purplexing for me, cause I know it would be better to have it done now when I'm younger, then when older!

    They used the mesh on me. It wasn't arthroscopy. That was over 8 years ago and things improve. If I had to do it over again, yes I would and surgery terrifies me too.
