    Pagkatapos ng surgical procedure, may mga bumabalik, just like with my late Grandpa's case. Twice siyang naoperahan because of this. Is it congenital or hereditary? Nakakatakot!

    bakit daw ba sya naoperahan ulit?
    kung parehong site ang 2nd oreration - baka naman hindi nagclose yong incision ng first operation kaya nagka hernia ulit
    kung magkaibang site- siguro nga congenital at baka masyadong mahina ang abdominal wall yung grand pa mo.
    ito ay nursing openion ko lang. ang doctor lang mismo ang maka-kaalam sa kaso ng grand pa mo at sana inexplain nya bakit maoperahan ulit. ask ko lang? ang first operation ba ay gumaling? nainfection ba?
