Has anyone ever had a hernia, Inguinal Hernia specifically? Found out I had one in 2007, pretty small though, never really felt it. Though i've felt it a bit more the past few weeks, very slightly bigger. No pain or anything, so avoiding the surgery (partially because I hate the idea of any big surgery unless very necessary, and partly because there seem to be a good number of possible complications with hernia ones from the mesh), but was curious if anyone else has one and either had surgery and what its like or has found other ways to help. (I know they don't heal completely on their own though, apparently). Or if anyone knows someone who has had the surgery, or hasn't had it and is fine. Just trying to find out any info. Thanks!
