Default Any Natural remedies for hernia's?

I have an inguinal hernia, actually now I think I have 2 (one on left and one on the right side. Most of my discomfort is in the abdominal area and mid back, away from the actually location of the hernia. I have a surgery scheduled for next month for it, but it is becoming increasing more challenging to deal with the hernia. I usually try to avoid taking drugs, and do not take Advil at all sine it bother my stomach. Any suggestions?

I had a right inguinal hernia, and had to have surgery. The doctors claimed that it was necessary, because the intestines could break through the muscle and possibly be strangled. A 911 situation.

I had to get a hernia support to hold it in or keep it from sagging even more. I found it somewhere on the Internet. Sorry, I don't remember where, but they are common.

As far as I know there is no natural remedy. Mine ocurred because I was stupid. I was lifting something heavy when I was already tired and sweaty.

TwinDad86, My hubby has had 3 hernia ops 2 on one side and one on the other, you have to have them operated on as they could strangulate, and cause gangerine.
our son got him some Arnica pilules from a homeopath that we know and he took them for the bruising, just before and after the op which helped a lot,he didn't have the keyhole surgery though, and had the mesh put in which can create problems in some people.
