    Henia Surgery or not?

    have been diagnosed a hernia in the groin ( male ) have no pain and it`s not to big, have been to see the docs who said leave it but in my wisdom i decided to get another opinion, they refered me to the hospital who had a look and recomended that I had it fixed ( this is the uk with NHS ) with keyhole surgery, the problem I have is firstly I have never had an operation before so the thought of having anesthetic feels me with fear and secondly when I was looked at when in the hospital the consultant went though the pros and cons but did say "you may not be in pain at the moment but it has a slight chance of it being painfull afterwards but we can sort that out " whatever that is, on further investigation I have found that there is apparently a concern with the mesh that is used which is what I assume he was referring to, if you type hernia mesh into google you get alot of info about the problems with this mesh, I`m in a real dilemma what should I do leave it for a bit or take a chance? this is really worrying me I just don`t know which way to turn this is not something that I`m a little concerned about it`s on my mind all the time and I don`t know who to talk to about it
    this is the first time I have posted on here in the hope that I can get some advice

    The mesh is really no big deal.I have it from abdominal hernia done over twenty years ago.I never even gave it a though t. If you dont have surgery, the hernia can keep popping and become strangulated. Then you
    need emergency procedure.
