No alternative: Surgery is the only way. Early is best b/c then can be done laparoscopic, if you wait too long, you may no longer be a candidate.

Inguinal hernia: Sadly, the standard of care in today's world for a symptomatic inguinal hernia would be a surgical repair. First, an evaluation by a trained health care professional to determine if you really have an inguinal hernia. Then, and honest assessment of your symptoms. Pain, limitation activities, change in bowels. If the hernia is not symptomatic, there is no rush to surgery. You could try a trusse.
