Hi I read your concerns very carefully and you should go directly to the ER because incarcerated hernia is a medical emergency.

Brief Answer: Go to ER as soon as possible... Detailed Answer: Hi, If the pain is on and off, it means that hernia is moving following the movements of bowels. Being constipated and burning sensation is worrisome as it might indicate any obstacle to emptying the bowels. Therefore, I strongly suggest to go to ER immediately to get treatment as soon as possible. If you wait for the appointment with surgeon, it will be too late as progressive damages could derive including incarceration of hernia. All the best! Dr.Benard
