However, reading a number of blogs on this forum, I am beginning to wonder if it's worth while, since the majority of reports are negative, it would seem.
Although I have genuine sympathy with those who have reported failures or frequent repeat operations, I would love to hear from anybody who has had a successful hernia fix. Come on, there must be at least one of you.
NB. I live in France, but have been considering going back to England to a hernia specialist hospital and wonder if that would be worthwhile. That particular clinic, on their web site, say that the stay in hospital would be only a few days, whilst my French surgeon indicates that it would require a "good week". What is your experience? Whilst the operation would be free in France, the English clinic has not replied to my query as to the cost for having it done privately. Anybody in UK any idea?
(I was due to have the operation in June, but it had to be postponed because on the evening before the operation, it was found that I had phlebitis and they would not operate for at least three months, after appropriate corrective treatment.)
