If the hernia is small you might have just not been told about it. Was the endo done by the same doctor? Did you ask whether it had ever been seen previously.
More importantly, is the hernia very large? Is it causing problems? Older adults often have hernias and never know it.
And Sarco, yes they can be caused by accident. Mine was. After a high speed collision I had to have surgery to pull my stomach out of my chest.
Different drs. each time,its possible the 1st two drs. missed it,thanks for all your replys.
