I picked a heck of a time to break myself. Apparently I have a left inguinal hernia. I know this because about 12 years ago I had a right inguinal hernia and what I’ve got going on now is identical. At least now I’m symmetrical.
It is very unpleasant, but the recovery is arguably worse. Don’t worry, I’ll have plenty of time to think about that and dread it because in talking with my doctor, nobody is gonna touch this for at least a month or two.
So in the meantime no heavy lifting or strenuous activities. There goes all my wrenching and house work plans. I also have to try to sleep on my back so everything relaxes, which is weird to me.
Bizzarrini P538 for your time.
