          Jesus. Autoimmune diseases like psoriasis have been figured out long time ago. Just fix your microbiome and get high levels of d3 (with all the cofactors like magnesium, boron, k2). Get some sunlight or buy infra red lamp. Doctors won't tell you about that since they can't profot from it and it will decrease their profits and profits of big pharma.

      I got mine repaired through an outpatient clinic. Tell your physician it impacts your well-being, causing great physical pain with even light lifting and severe mental distress by impeding your ability to exercise. Might convince insurance to not treat it as an elective surgery.

      Did hours on the bicycle til it got repaired. Find some way to stay sane.

      I’ve got psoriasis, balding, hernia at 26. Still getting girls, what’s your excuse? You have your entire life to make money and buy solutions to your problems, quit complaining and get started.

      I’ve been having pain right under the center of my ribcage for the last week and a half. I suspect it could be a hernia. The pain is mild and gets worse if i tense hard or stretch. What do?

      Hernia pops out, you’d be able to feel it

      Doc said its only a minor case and "dont need fixing at this point". On the other hand I cant lift at all, or I have to do it extremely carefully. Thing got sore today again, probably for picking up a dumbbell. I could go to private clinic though, that would cost approximately 3k

      Escalate the issue, see another doc, or just go str8 to clinic with money in hand. Not being able to lift is not a “minor issue”

      oh yeah I want some intrusive plastic mesh in my cavity forever that'll start to degrade overtime.

      Back in the early days of mesh repair there were some substandard materials used, but they haven't been used in decades. Today's mesh lasts a lifetime. Would I prefer not having mesh in my body, sure, but who wants their guts spilling out, lmao.

      People dont usually know this but there is a tendon right there under the right rib. People often mistake it as a liver problem. You can massage and release that pain by using your fingers and GENTLY going under the rib and massaging that area. Like wise it could also be an intercostal muscle that is inflammed.

    If you have health insurance, just get it fixed. As soon as I got diagnosed with one (I had an inguinal as well as an umbilical, saw a little bulge when working out that looked and felt suspicious so I got it checked) I scheduled the surgery immediately. I'd never had surgery before so I was terrified, but I knew if I didn't get it fixed it would only get worse over time, and it would always be in the back of my mind.

    Truth is if you get laparoscopic surgery it's very minimally invasive. I was able to ease back in to working out after 6 weeks by pushing through the pain (surgeon said it was okay) and after 3 months post-surgery I'm back to my usual weights and very rarely feel the repair anymore. I also did NOT need prescription pain meds amazingly. I did take one once, since I was prescribed it, however it just gave me terrible constipation and very little pain relief in return, so I never took another. Ibuprofen and Tylenol alternation were all I needed. It hurts but unless you're a little b***h it's so, so easy to deal with.

    Just get it fixed, now, the sooner you do it the quicker you'll be able to stop thinking about it and the quicker you'll be able to get back to working out. Just don't rush things, listen to your doc, and eat enough while healing.

        Was your doc a general doctor, or a hernia surgeon? Based on the answer you gave, I'm guessing it was a regular doc. Regular docs are basically antibiotic givers and good at telling you what you have, but they're useless beyond that - and referring you to people who know their shit.

        Go to an actual general surgeon that does laproscopic hernia repairs. My surgeon told me mine is minor, but will need fixing at some point. If your doctor is telling you it doesn't need fixing at this point, what he means is it's not an emergency, however it's beyond silly to not say a hernia needs to be repaired, because it will only get bigger over time.

        Is there a possibility that you'll go the rest of your life without needing it to be repaired? I mean yeah, I guess, but who wants to live life knowing that their intestines are spilling out, and have to tiptoe around everything because it might make them spill out even more?

        Its not cosmetic and it does cause issues and there's the small chance of it going necrotic.
        Get it fixed, they sometimes refuse to fix them for elderly people for whom it really doesn't matter but for a young active man its important for your quality of life to get it fixed.
        Escalate if the doctor refuses to take care of it, say it causes pain and make it clear it is bothering you.

        Though do keep in mind that there are different way to correct it and choose the one that appeals. For me the mesh was okay but it did cause pain (which did go away but lasted almost 2 years and even needed opiates to dull it sometimes) and the surgeon told afterwards that its the most common complication other than the mesh failing outright.

      Mine was small too. When you push it does it feel like water is squooshing around? Like it should feel like the sound your stomach makes when it's digesting food.

          it's an easy surgery and an easy recovery. Go get it checked to make sure. He'll tell you how big it is and if you don't have insurance whether it's safe to wait. Hernias only get bigger over time, they cannot self heal unfortunately. You don't wanna be caught in a situation a few years from now where it strangulates or whatever, which would mean emergency surgery as it can be fatal if not caught in time.

And it's very small and simply just an inconvenience. I've done little research and they said that unless you feel discomfort or it's very sizeable then it's just minor.

                You're over reacting. That's like saying your finger is going to fall off from a paper cut. There are different stages of hernias and some are mild with 0 discomfort. Are you really going go get surgery because of a mild issue? The doctors will tell you to wait until it grows or you show signs of pain. Surgery is not something you want to go through, especially highly invasive surgery. You're more likely to die on the table, than you are from a mild non discomfort hernia

                I was responding to some idiot who says he "did his own research" on the web and determined his hernia was minor, not an issue, and didn't need to be looked into by a medical pro until he was feeling pain. I never said "dude, get that repaired NOW or you're going to die!"

                You're absolutely right there are stages. My own surgeon told me I'll want to get mine fixed, as it will continue to get worse over time, but he also said at this point, and at my current age, weight, and health, and based on the very small size of it, I could safely take a wait and see approach if I wanted.

                However, I had no way of knowing that until an actual fricking surgeon takes a look and gives that determination. What if I thought it was minor, but it wasn't? What if I woke up in the middle of the night in severe pain and needed a rush repair job? Now an otherwise boring easy procedure becomes far riskier.

                My thinking in getting it done despite it being minor was: hernias need to get repaired at some point. I'd rather do it in my 20s when I'm in very good health rather than when I'm in my 60s when recovery is going to take way longer and the risks will be greater. And when it's done, it's done, I don't gotta think about it or baby it anymore.

                Also, laparoscopic surgery is not highly invasive, it is considered minimally invasive. They go in through tiny little incisions. In like the least risky area to perform a surgery. I didn't even need stitches, they just put some Dermabond liquid bandage on it. 60 minutes after waking up I walked to the bathroom and took a piss all by myself.

                I agree that surgery isn't something you want to go through, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. If you have a hernia, at the very fricking least, don't listen to dumbasses on the internet. Pony up the $60, go to an expert, and then make an actually informed decision from an expert who has actually diagnosed and repaired likely hundreds of these within a 5 year period.

        I have a weird bump on the upper right side of my abs but it isn’t lumpy and just feels like a single hard muscle that’s popping out which also hurts whenever I do the lightest ab exercises. I’m hoping it’s not a hernia since it’s not soft and squishy but it’s weird nonetheless. As if a singular “ab” just decided to become strained or something.

    I've had two of them. It's an easy surgery but depending on how much muscle they gotta cut through, your recovery time varies.

    There's nothing you can do except patch it up. In the meantime, you just need to find different lifts that don't impact the area that much. Machine movements are perfect for this because it isolates the target muscle and holds everything else down.

    Your only option is to just patch it up, frick what the doc says. They don't repair on their own and they only get worse over time. I had a big one and I avoided surgery for a long time and even thought wearing a belt would delay things... nope, i remember being unable to walk around a Walmart to shop one day. I had insurance, each surgery cost like 700-1000. Well worth it.

      As a Canadian, doctors don’t operate on you unless the hernia is larger than a golf ball.

      Imagine going years without being able to exercise.

      You wait over 1 year just to be SEEN by the surgeon. Just to have them say “can’t do shit atm”. If you are cleared for surgery, you are waiting another year for the operation.

        Here in the US I called my doc, told him I thought I had a hernia, I didn't even have to go in - he immediately referred me to a general surgeon. I went in 2 days later, he said I had one, and could either get it fixed, or wait a little if I wanted since it was very small, but he recommended getting it fixed. So I signed a form and scheduled the surgery. 3 weeks later I'm in and out of the whole process in a couple of hours. Insurance deductible was $2.5K. I fricking love America, fellas.

          I know that the NHS has gone to shit and is an overall crappy system more concerned with saving money than actually healing the sick, but ambulances are busy dealing with people who are actually in an emergency having heart attacks and strokes and shit, and not the ones who could just get a lift to the hospital. When my son broke his leg we just drove him, we didn't call 999. Part of the problem with the whole mess is that people take zero responsibility for anything related to their health and just assume the state should sort it all out for them.

          >I'm in and out of the whole process in a couple of hours. Insurance deductible was $2.5K
          You can go private in the UK as well, you'd not pay much more than that for hernia repair. The whole 'muh NHS' mentality winds up with people suffering in pain for months on end or losing their jobs because they can't conceive of the idea of paying to fix some basic medical issue quickly.

    Op, get a surgery as soon as you can. Your intestines can be jammed in hernia. In the best case it will prevent food from passing and you will bloat as you never did before. In worse case scenario, the blood will be blocked from going through your intestines and part of your digestive system will die within hours. You will be slowly dying from starvation and doctors won't be able to help you.
