Wow, you think you might have found some less dramatic way to get him to believe you.
I've had the hernia now for 2-3 years. It's only lately that it's really been giving me trouble. I go in next week for pictures so my ps can send it to my insurance, and we'll set a date for mid Oct. after Yom Kippur.
I don't know how he stiches me up, but I do know he puts in four layers of stitches. And he's really good. My WLS doc will be doing the hernia, so the two of them are working together, which they've done a lot of.
I'm doing my thighs mainly because of my tap dancing class. I hate watching them jiggle so much when I dance. And I'm looking forward to my pants fitting better and not being so tight there.
