When should a hernia be operated on?

In the uncomplicated case, it can be done at a time of your own choice. Allow for a total time away from work of about four weeks. If you have had any urinary problems, it will be necessary to check your prostate in advance to be certain that you will be able to void easily without pushing and straining the operated area.
 It is unwise to repair a hernia if there is prostatic interference with urine flow. If there is a prostatic problem that requires treatment and it is not treated first, you may be unable to urinate after the operation and it will be necessary to remove the urine by means of a rubber catheter. It is best to avoid this problem by anticipating it.
