Should i wear a truss for my hernia?

Trusses don't cure hernial protrusions. They do not prevent the hernia from growing. In some instances they cannot effectively prevent the intestine from escaping into the scrotum. A truss can sometimes restrain the bulge of the small "popeye" hernia. But the compression pad can bruise the skin and start an infection in the hair roots. The physician does not ordinarily advise the use of a permanent truss. It often gives the patient a false sense of security. Many patients abandon them after a short time because they don't relieve the pain or restrain the protrusion.
