Doctor:First, the diagnosis of hernia is done clinically not through an ultrasound scan.
Doctor:Unless and until a surgeon has examined your mother and confirmed presence of hernia, we cannot diagnose her with this entity.
Doctor:So if you haven't seen a surgeon yet, she needs to consult one.

Doctor:surgery alone will provide permanent cure.

Doctor:There is option to treat it through laproscopically.
Doctor:However the best approach shall be considered after examination.
User:right.. doctor... i will consult th surgeon soon.
Doctor:If cost is a concern, you may opt for regular hernia surgery.
User:yep.. but the healing in regular surgery will take long ?
