Hi Rowan2123,

I'm sorry you are ill. I would suggest that you get copies of all of your reports relating to your hernia diagnosis and treatment including the surgery and infections so you can seek a second opinion. Read more about second opinions by using the WebMD search engine to read an archived blog entry from Dr Bill Lloyd about when to seek a second opinion, I think you will find it helpful.
