    Need Hernia Surgery

    I have a small hernia that needs to be repaired.
    I have to choose a hospital and a surgeon.
    I've never done this before.

    Any suggestions?
    What do I need to watch out for?
    Vacuum Technology:
    CRUD = Contamination Resulting in Undesirable Deposits.
    CRAPP = Contamination Resulting in Additional Partial Pressure.

    Change your vacuum pump oil now.

    Common surgery I wouldn't worry much. I just would want to know if a mesh was used and make note of what kind in case a problem arises with it in the future.

    This is helpful in explaining the types of repair. I have heard too many mesh stories to use that method....

    A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.

    Best of luck for a speedy recovery. I'd recommend a place that handles athletes if it works for you and your insurance.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Ask your doc, "if you needed this, who would you have do it, and where?"
