I thought I would just give quick update on my case. I just got home from a stay in hospital due to my hernia. They were tossing up on weather they should operate today or not. I pleaded with them to let me have today out of hospital as it was really important that I go to my dd1 final assembly this morning. They let me out with seconds to spare. I going back in the next two weeks to get a date to fix even though I currently pregnant. Apparently the hernia is 10.5 cms long and the whole 3 cms wide. So has to be fixed soon.
