Fat Containing Hernia?
I have been diagnosed with a 'fat containing hernia' that is 'bilateral'. I know that this means there is one on each side, and I am told they are small after they were found in a CT scan. There is constant dull pain that increases with strain. I was told by the ER doc that I will need to consult with a surgeon. I have filed a Workers' Comp claim, and was wondering what the most likely treatment steps are going to be...? Will the hernia keep getting bigger, until there is eventually a dangerous small bowel protrusion or can I expect this to remain more or less stable? I am 41 and about 20lbs overweight. I don't mind the idea of surgery as much as the idea that this is going to be a chronic problem.
