Customer Question
statins. She takes aerobic classes...
My 84 year old mother is in good health; taking only statins. She takes aerobic classes 5 times per week and enjoys a fairly active lifestyle. She was recently diagnosed with a hetnia and eas told by her GP that there was no need to have it repaired. I assume he is saying this due to her age.
I assume that there is a chance it can cause complications down the road if not tepaired and as my mother's parents lived well into their 90's - and my mother is in good health now, wouldnt it make sense to have it repaired?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
