Hernia

06/06/2008 11:01 AM

What are the existing and potential effects of an untreated and sometimes painful hernia in a man, recently age 59, who is about 25 pounds overweight, considerably stressed and regularly physically active(hiking, skiing, biking, dancing)? I don't know the duration of his condition.

I don't have my MD, so I would highly recommend consulting a doctor, but in part it will depend on where that hernia is. One of the big problems with an untreated hernia is to potential for becoming strangulated. That could become deadly serious affair.

My recommendation is to have the individual seek professional advice from a doctor on the condition and follow that advice.

I agree with Anonymous Hero. This is a site focused around engineers and technical professionals. While some of us may have experience with hernias, we are not medical professionals. You really should check with a doctor about this.
