    The Deviot is going to be put on the shelf next month: Hernia Surgery Christmas Ed.

    Hey all. I don't know why I'm that compelled to mention it, but I figured I'd give everyone a heads up.
    It turns out I have an Inguinal Hernia that requires surgery to fix it. I'll be on the shelf for at least a week
    following it, assuming all goes well You'll see me more again in January. Wish me luck. Going under the scalpel
    in 19 days.

    Been there, done that.

    Best advice I can give you is to get on your feet as soon as is reasonably possible...and try not to sneeze for the first few days.

    Good luck and best wishes!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    I had one of those, too. I healed pretty quickly, but every once in a while I still feel a "pull" in the left side.
    Anyway, good luck!

    I've had two hernia operations -- one on either side. One was seventeen years ago and the other was fourteen years ago -- both from stupidly trying to do squats with more weight than I could handle. I have to say I've had absolutely no problem since with either of them and I'm not aware that they are even there. Hernia repair is one of the most common (and successful) operations done by physicians.

    Thanks everyone. I somehow got over the fear (Hey, 1st surgery I'm allowed to be a wuss ).
    Doc says it was actually a fairly large Hernia, but everything went fine. I am VERY sore though.
    I'm not allowed to leave the house for two weeks although I am cheating on Christmas to see my nieces.
    Just wanted to give a heads up, and thank everyone for thinking about me.
