    Can anyone recommend a good doctor in the SLC area to repair the baby alien trying to squeeze out of my abdomen?

    Thanks!

    OMG.

    Laughing still pains my 40 years - ago scars from how they "used to repair" (double) hernias. :cry

    They opened ya up like a friggen deer.

    :deal A serial killer would have used more finesse.

    Now days, most of em are fixed with a little mesh and they only CARVE a rather smallish hole in yourself.
    Much like patching a tubeless tire, sort of a plug-kit for your, uhh, mid section I presume.

    A final "ride report" on this would be great, but you can spare us the pics, unless there are slutty nurses with red hair.

    Yup...had the old style big slice when I was a kid...and just a few months ago a double repaired via laproscopy and mesh. Was pretty much a breeze...except I got shingles a week after the surgery. THAT was no breeze! Lasted 6 weeks!! :huh!

    Ask your primary care doc for who's good. Worked for me in Denver anyway.

    Good luck!

    Sounds like it could be the next big medical break through.

    ........... for a guy to get a 'hernia'........ seems to me like it should be called a HISnia.

    That's a damn clever observation :puke1

    I remember that laughing, or uhh, wearing pants or a belt for like a year hurt like a bass turd.

    Or lifting anything heavier than beer or a bag of jerky.

    Thanks for the excellent advice and lovely lady :beer

    In December of 2011, a dude in my Krav Maga class broke my tibia and fibula. Surprisingly, recovering from this damn hernia seems worse :dunno
