Hernia update

Nice to have my personal medical issues here for thousands of people per day to see….

Anyway, I don’t have a hernia yet. I have the beginnings of one. I had the really fun “turn your head and cough” exam today… Lots o’ fun. The least the doc could have done was give me a cigarette when he was done. “Was it as good for you as it was for me?”

Turns out a hernia is where your intestine goes through a hole in your muscle tissue and actually sticks out in your….uh… family jewels area. I don’t have this but I do have a weakening of the initial area and if I do any more lifting I WILL have a full blown hernia.


Doc says if I cough or sneeze I need to support the area with my hand. He says if I take it easy for a couple of weeks with no heavy lifting it will heal. He also said that “pushing” is the cause and as long as I don’t “bear down” I can do whatever I want, including GOLF. Whew!
