A 43-year-old member asked:
Supposing you're operated on for an inguinal hernia and it's done under general anesthesia, is there a chance of permanent paralysis?

What??: What paralysis are you speaking of? Inguinal hernia is the most common surgery done today in the us. I have never in 20yrs of practice heard of anyone ending up with permanent paralysis.
