CarKiller just called and told me that the surgeon advises against surgery at this time. He is sure that CarKiller will need surgery at some point, but the hernia is very small and has no bulge, so the risks associated with surgery are not worth it right now. He told him what to watch for and sent him back to duty! I am glad he doesn’t need surgery (and its inherent risks). I was kind of looking forward to the possibility of him spending a long time here with us on convalescent leave, but I am really glad he doesn’t need surgery.
Now if they can just figure out what is causing all the pain!!!!
