Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
When was the last operation done and when did you first notice the recurrence?
Please enter chat and use reply to respond.
Done about ten years ago. Recurrence first noticed after losing weight on the 5&2 diet perhaps just over two years ago, eventually had it examined this autumn, had done some heavy garden maintenence in two years prior to losing weight.
With groin hernias, it is usually best to be careful.
Recurrent hernias have a tendency to get obstructed.
It is best not to do press ups with a hernia.
But I would also like you get this checked with an ultrasound, if the hernial defect is a wide one then the chance of obstruction is less.
An ultrasound can be used to evaluate the hernia defect accurately.
Ultra sound was used in diagnosis, details not explained to me other than confirmed hernia.
Alright, usually the sonologists write the defect size in their comments, so you can check your report for that.
Guess this chat is over now thank you
