Hernias and VSG: Help Me



Recommended Posts

Hey all! I am doing my pre-op tests right now, and all the appointments. I am really really scared that my current ventral hernia is going to make me not be able to have surgery or give complications. Any body else has a hernia that got the surgery and it was fine? Or vice versa. Anything, let me know!

Usually, such things are not a problem and are simply repaired as part of your WLS; sometimes people don't even know that they had a hernia until the surgeon told them about fixing it while he was doing the surgery. Give your surgeon a heads up on it so that he can allocate a bit more time for your surgery if it makes a difference to his scheduling (some surgeons really pack their schedules, assembly line style, while others don't.
