Hernias And Waist Discomfort
I am 34 and I have an inguinal hernia on my left pelvic area, but no pain or discomfort at all, just a noticeable bulge. Can I live with this? Thanks
Yes I have one too: Inguinal hernias are classified as direct or indirect. They can be congenital or acquired with straining. They can produce pain with standing straining and produce a bulge on one or both groin areas. Over time they can enlarge and descend into the scrotum. They can occasionally "pop out" and produce a painful bulge which means they are requiring repair. Hernias can be fixed as an out patient. ...Read more

Weight gain is achieved if the individual takes in more calories than he/she burns; weight loss happens when calories burned exceed calorie intake. Exercise to improve toning, reduce cravings ; stress, assist in body self-image. Unfortunately, you can't pick where (or not) you gain the weight. ...Read more

Tugging may occur and cause discomfort, but the exact symptom would be hard to predict. A ct scan or us might help define if this were happening. Other organs that might get pulled into a hernia include bladder and bowel. ...Read more
