Hubby has a hernia that is growing and surgery is not imminent...is there anything that will reduce the hernia??? It is causing him great discomfort and he is thoroughly miserable.............anything he can take???
There is nothing to take for a hernia that I am aware of. Hernia is a structural problem. As long as he can reduce it, that is push it back in he is OK. The concern is that it can strangulate which is life threatening but if he can push it back in - called reducing a hernia - he is ok. But if he is miserable probably a surgery is best. Usually not a big deal, if he otherwise is generally healthy.
