      Thank you for your responses. My hernia is getting a bit bigger every day. I have decided to go ahead and have surgery. Dec. 6th as an out patient. I feel this is a better option than waiting until I have an emergency situation pop up (pun intended). We are planning a month long trip to Europe in the late spring so I want to be healed by then.

      Iwish you success & a quick uneventful recovery from your hernia surgery.

      Maybe and abdominal binder could help? I'd ask about one.
