I learned a lot about hernias in the class and office visit, but the most important thing was: I don't have one! At least, not one that the surgeon wanted to do anything about. "An MRI isn't how you find a hernia," she said. "It's way too sensitive." If you can't see or feel anything from the outside, it's not worth worrying about. Since nothing has shown up yet, chances are it won't until I'm at least 4 or 5 years old — if at all. So we'll just watch and wait.
Surprisingly, the only other patient in the class was also a girl. She was born two days after me, but she was a preemie, and is still only a little over 5 lb. She's tiny! I refuse to believe that I was that small a mere 10 weeks ago.
