The surgery for your hernias can be done in one sitting- but it will depend on a few things the nature/ size of your hernias Ideally you should be able to get the surgery done in one sitting it can be done under spinal anaesthesia. If you are covered by your son's company insurance and it has been 2 years since your coverage- that is if it is in the second year of coverage then hernia will be most probably covered
