Had a 2 week cough, went to the Dr, found an inguinal hernia. I tell myself it's from coughing but I tend to push my limit heavy lifting.
Anybody with experience please help. Dr wants me to get the surgery and mesh implant. Never mentioned the much higher percentage on post operative pain. 20-30% have serious pain years after.
Post herniorraphy pain syndrome;
Surgical correction of inguinal hernias is called a hernia repair. It is currently NOT recommended in minimally symptomatic hernias, for which watchful waiting is advised, due to the risk of post herniorraphy pain syndrome.
