I have just discovered a hernia about an inch from my pubic bone. I also have a little of burning in my right middle abdomen. In addition I only have 1/2 of my colon & post ok back surgery 23 days. How fast should I consult with a doc?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

A day & no other

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don't think so. The reason I had a colonectomy is due to intersuception. I am 57

Hernia need urgent consultation, if there is pain at the hernial site and associated with bloating, gas, abdominal pain, inability to pass gas and tenderness.

Otherwise it can be evaluated in a routine consultation.
