My brother-in-law went to the ER recently with stomach pain and they diagnosed him with an inguinal hernia. He has had discomfort in the groin area for some time now and ocassionally "pushes downward" in his lower abdomen from time to time. Doctor said it is from lifting which he does at his job and he has a few days off to recuperate. What is the prognosis for this? Will "laying off" for a few days fix this? Or is he likely to require more intervention medically? Are there any dietary requirements to assist in the healing process? Any known irritants that may have compromised the intestine lining to be avoided? Any help on this subject is greatly appreciated.!:)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
