I've had three (all different types) hernias. My last one was repaired in February of this year.

I had bulges that would pop out at certain times. The second one was a femoral hernia which is pretty rare, and I had to undergo emergency surgery for that one because it was strangulated. Surgery was something like 30 minutes and I missed two weeks total time from work.
