So as many of you may know I went to the doctor and found out that I have a hernia. I went to a surgery doctor and she sent me to get a CT scan, and low and behold not only do I have a hernia, but I have a BIG hernia. The size of the hole is around 3 to 4 inches and 1/4 of my intestines and some of my bladder are through that lovely hole. Weirdly enough she doesn't suggest that I get the surgery right away. She suggests that I wait around 6 months and continue to lose weight as I have been, then go to a hernia specialist and get the surgery then. My BMI is high enough right now, that if I got the surgery now I would have a 50% chance of getting another hernia, and have a worse recovery from that one, because of all the scar tissue from the one I have right now. Losing weight will help my recovery time, my surgery, and help me to not get another one later down the road. So, unless I start feeling lots of pain, I am to wait 6 months to have my surgery. Good or Bad..............I am not sure what this news is, but I am going to continue to do my weight loss stuff and hope that it helps me to get this hernia taken care of.
