    Probably a surgical repair. It was no big deal for me.

    20 years ago I got the (verified) flu, it gave me pneumonia and bronchitis, and I coughed so much/hard I blew my abdomen wall out.

    I have a 2" x 3" piece of mesh in there now...IIRC the size. I had surgery in the morning and walked out of the hospital later that day.

    Was supposed to take it easy for a month, got bored after a week and started building patio furniture.

    Good luck.

    Edit: See a doc at your earliest to verify exactly what's going on. Many times that bulge sticking out is intestine. It pokes through the abdomen wall, then the wall squeezes shut and could result in "strangulation."

    That's bad juju and you don't want that to happen.

    Had double hernia 5 years ago. 2 things. you need a laxative after surgery. Didn't crap for 4 days. Second, your ball sack will be full of blood. Good luck.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the info. I really am not wanting to go to a Dr office now but I don't want this thing to create some other issues. Wonder if this would fall under the "elective ' surgery thing? And I also don't want a scar that will jepordize my lucrative modeling career!

    If your bowel becomes strangulated, there won't be anything "elective" about it.

    Go see the doc and let him decide.

    Doing my best to get in tomorrow to see the Dr who did a gall bladder fix for my wife. He and I workout at the local gym so I hope to get full consideration. It is on my right side, no way I could kick start it.

    All elective surgery cancelled till further notice. Have to wait till it pops really bad with extreme pain of bowel function is affected by "strangulation", then it could be done if a Dr is available. The two guys I would want have checked out till at least May. Not even taking appts to look at it. No riding for me till this is fixed which may be a while. If it ain't one thing its another!

    Yea I think there is a bunch of us getting put into the que for elective surgeries. I hope for everyone's sake that this corona virus calms down sooner than later. Please take it easy as you don't want to make things worse as you wait this out.

    I rode with a hernia for a season using compression shorts. Got fixed when season wound down. This is very common, I have to think of who I know who hasn't had one. I had traditional open surgery rather than lapro, because of scar tissue in the abdomen fron prior adventures. Doc told me this is the best way anyway. I do know a guy who had a lapro fix fail and had a traditional redo. First couple days getting up sucks then it's no big deal. Back in action in 5 weeks.
