For quite a while, I suspected that I might have an Umbilical (belly button) Hernia. Last fall the PET/CT Scan for that lung situation (which turned out to be benign) also spotted the small hernia. It is one of those things that had not caused much trouble, but could if it were to get worse, and it sometimes gets irritated. It needs to get fixed. As surgeries go, this one is done outpatient, pretty simple and not deep or risky. I met with the surgeon a couple of weeks ago and the procedure is scheduled for April 2nd at the hospital in Brevard, NC (I also had my cataract operations and the prostate one there.) The main restriction during the recovery time is not lifting more than ten pounds for 4-6 weeks, so I have to stock up on birdseed so I don’t have to wrestle 50 pound bags for a while. Well, that’s what’s up with me on the medical front as long as I avoid the Corona Virus. That thing, even if I don’t catch it could throw a monkey wrench into the plan a number of different ways.
