I read somewhere in my poking around through all this that up to 40% of those needing prostate surgery also need a hernia repair. The recommendation was that all urologists doing a RP check for hernia problems and fix them at the same time.
I asked my doctor to fix my hernia as long as he was in the neighborhood. Took him an extra 20 minutes for the surgery. I'm sure it wouldn't have happened if I hadn't brought it up.
Any others get a twofer?
