User :   my daughter (40 yrs old) has a groin hernia growing daily - she is scheduled for surgery late june but in a lot of pain and it keeps popping out. Should she try to get it done sooner
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   If the pain is a continuous pain, and the swelling does not get reduced, then she needs the surgery as soon as possible.
User :   We live in a very small town so all hospitals are 25 miles - is it dangerous to wait
Doctor :   If they are not, that is the swelling is reducible and the pains are only when the swelling gets herniated, then she can get the surgery as planned.
Doctor :   The more you wait, the more the chances that it can get complicated.
User :   What is the complication - does it burst?
Doctor :   The siymptoms of complications are explained earlier and it needs immediate surgery.
User :   Thank you
Doctor :   The complications are irreversibility, obstruction, gangrenous formation.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   No - I'll pass the information on and hope she can find someone in the area
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me. Bye for now. Please refer your friends to our service.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
