Nope, but you can get a free Tribal for every hernia operation. Think about it. Cinco de Mayo special, runs through the 1st of next month.

I was doing sit-ups on Sunday, during Army Reserve Drill and I felt a sharp pain. I then had a very hard time running, and after the run was feeling around my belly button and had a big lump. I went to the medic and he said it was a hernia and we went to the ER right then. It's an "umbilical hernia" the intestine went back in, so no emergency surgery, but I'm getting the corrective surgery scheduled very soon, waiting on the army to put me on orders for it, since I hurt myself during training.

that's the real story, just being weird in the OP...

Yes, I have had said surgery.

Tell your friend to expect that it will be very difficult to pee or poop for a long while after the surgery. It'll be painful to get up and back into bed but he'll need to force himself too very carefully so as to not to re-open the incision. He wont be able to lift anything over a few pounds for a while either. It's been a while since I had mine, but that's what sticks out in my mind.

I heard a good prank to pull on the garbage man. Every week for 6 months put out a barrel with one real light bag in it. He'll get used to just flingin it into the truck. Then week 27 fill the barrel up with cement blocks. Watch him jump off the truck grab the thing with one hand and rip apart his groin in one motion.
Great fun.

Did you ever see that sketch where he and Martin Short were a couple of janitors, and Crystal kept talking about all these things he was gonna' do and use, and every time Short would guess an item, he'd guess wrong, and it all culminated with utterly ridiculous shit like "sticking a corkscrew up my nose"etc?

Classic skit.

Yep, that's the one. That WAS the best post-original cast they had the first time around.

Troost is a street in KCMO, east side, about 8 or 9 blocks east of Main Street.

I used to live about 4 blocks west of it on 35th/Armor Blvd. No big deal. No big deal at all.

Coff: very ironic post. I am going for my INGUINAL hernia surgery consultation on Friday. It's a bit similar but lower, and tearing of a hole that's already there (leading into the top of your scrotum) I had the right done five years ago.

You cannot lift anything over like 5 Lbs for up to 6 weeks. Depends on the type of hernia, how big and how invasive the repair is. Many do it laproscopically nowadays (1/2 inch incisions). THing I remember is I was on Vicodin and that constipated me. NOT good trying to poop a duraflame out yer arse with a hernia just fixed. So be careful. Ask him if he;s putting in mesh. They usually do. It will reinforce the repair and sometimes the whole area. Some men are genetically disposed to them. My dad and brother have had 'em, so I can sorta believe it is genetic.

Good luck.

Yeah, I think I had to, like, fold a PEOPLE magazine in thirds and press it against my lower abdomen and just lean forward for like ten minutes. Lucky I didn't get a hemorrhoid the size and shape of Florida

One other thing to watch out for with the Vicodins.... I was in a lot of pain one afternoon and took an extra half of one with my pill. I was killing time on eBay, just checking out VW camper vans (I have always wanted one). Well, I saw the PERFECT one, all stock, same year and color as the one our dad had when we were kids.

Well, I thought that would be rad to have that, I mean, I was feeling VERY optimistic! So I threw down a pretty low bid amount on it. Next day I woke up to find out I WON.

Still have it, it was actually a good deal, but be careful about using the interwebs under the opiates! :)

I had a tooth pulled a year ago, and they loaded me up with Codeine. I walked out of the pharmacy, popped two of those fuckers, and decided to walk home like 4 miles instead of taking the bus. I was just floating along, MP3 blasting in my ear, all the way back to the crib.

Its probably a good idea to have your circumcision in the summer. That way, your ears will have time to adjust to exposure and will be less likely to frost bite.

Umbilical hernia surgery should be a piece of cake. I had what I thought was an "outie" belly button (about the size of a 1/2 marble) my whole life until I was admitted for a broken leg a couple years ago.

Turns out the muscles around my belly button never grew in. It's never bothered my one bit and it's gotten no bigger so I've never had it fixed but from what research I've done you get knocked out, lay around for a week while the muscles fuse and start getting back on your feet quickly. Now if you have a softball sticking out it's gonna be different obviously.

Take that for what exactly its worth however, hearsay from some guy on the internet.

EDIT: come to think of it what else could an "outie" belly button be but a slight hernia?
