Hernia???

I found out today I have a hernia!  It's this bulge near my belly button & I have to have surgery to fix it.  Has anyone had this done before?  The doctor said it was no big deal and I'd be able to walk out of the hospital the same day and be fine to go to work the next day.  But really?

Wait, removed or fixed??  Ick, I didn't think it was anything to be removed I thought they were just going to like push it back in or something.  But he was fine and the procedure itself was no big deal??

That was at least 2 years ago and still fine today.

My dh did. We had sex the next day. Don't worry it's not a big deal.

 A hernia is an opening and with where your's is I would guess that it is an umbilical hernia. What they will do is make sure nothing is pusing through the opening and stitch it up(closed). This is usually done as outpatient surgery and you will go home the same day. Maybe a little discomfort for a couple days but,you should be fine.
