Hello,

I suggest you to go with your doctors advice. I would like to see your Ultrasound of prostrate and how much this is causing trouble to you. If you undergo hernia surgery first, while straining for micturation it is going to hurt you more. First get rid of prostrate then go for hernia surgery.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameen Bin Naeem, General & Family Physician
