Default I have to have surgery

I noticed a lump in my pelvic region several months ago. I had my doctor appointment on Monday. I have an inguinal hernia, google it if you wanna gross yourself out. This is very strange to happen to me, considering I rarely do any heavy lifting. Anyways, this couldnt really come at a worse time, considering I cant' do ANY lifting and I plan on moving August 1st. 90% chance I will have to have surgury to correct the problem. I will probably be out of work for a week. I swear my Bonneville will never get done.

Good luck with the surgery. Do you have health insurance?

Ya, that'* not pretty. I have had an umbilical hernia for a couple of years now. They say they can fix it, but I really don't want to have the surgery. It'* not one of those that require surgery though. The good thing is, they will put you out, and you won't remember it....the bad thing is it looks like it'* near the boys, and that might hurt.

I have insurance, so I'm not worried about that. plus I know that they can settle for very small payments.

I am not worried about the surgery. I was completely at peace until I told my mom and my girlfriend. They were all freaking out, and I'm like, "what" This will be my 3rd surgery, I have had my tonsils out in 9th grade, and my appendix ruptured in 11th grade.
