Doctor Answers (2) on Hernia Defects
Hello there. I can understand your concern. So what is your question regarding this? If you want to know if there are any other options available to avoid surgery, then im sorry there are not. The defect in the abdomen has to be repaired. What both doctors have suggested is the same thing. You need to go ahead with the surgery. Kindly consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
