I WAS HOSPITALIZED WITH A SEVERE LUNG INFECTION IN MARCH 08 AND DOCTORS WERE SHOCKED AT THE SIZE OF MY ABDOMINAL HERNIA. THEY DID A CAT SCAN AND FOUND THAT MY GALLBLADDER AND INTESTINES WERE INVOLVED IN THIS HERNIA. I DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE SO REPAIR IS OUT OF THE QUESTION. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT SIGNS I SHOULD LOOK FOR IF MY HERNIA IS NEAR BURSTING. IS IT POSSIBLE A DOCTOR MIGHT TAKE MY CASE EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NO INSURANCE OR MEANS OF PAYING FOR IT SINCE IT IS ABNORMALLY LARGE. THE DOCTORS IN THE HOSPITAL WHERE I WAS ADMITTED HAD NEVER SEEN A HERNIA ANY WHERE NEAR THE SIZE OF MINE, I'D REALLY LIKE TO HAVE IT TAKEN CARE OF BEFORE IT BECOMES MORE SERIOUS. HELP
