My Dad is having surgery this morning for a very rare hernia in his abdomen. It took over a year for a doctor to diagnose the problem. A year of pain, a year of several emergency room visits, a year of doctors saying it was "just his imagination", a year that his belly has looked like a huge rock was in it. The doctor who finally diagnosed him said that if Dad would have come in a couple of years ago (with the same problem) that he would send him home because they wouldn't know what to do. The doctor also said that the surgery will be very painful afterwards.
Please send good vibes to him today.
Edit: My Dad was out of surgery around 9 this morning. He is recovering at home and in alot of pain. I hope they gave him some good pain meds! Thank you for all the well wishes!
