Thanks for the tips. I have tried the hot tub but not floating on my stomach. I wil try it! I live with my heating pad. I don't know what I would do without it as most of the time I am too nausaus to think about taking my pain medicine. I also know the pain when you fell like you are goig to pass out. I have laid on the bathroom floor many a night, not wanting to wake my husband and complain when he can't do a damn thing to help. So frustrating. I have reached my breaking point and have to do the surgery. I suffered for three months now and have lost too much weight, much more and I won't be strong enough to have the surgery. Thanks for the kind thoughts and I send them right back at you. two more >hernias.The pain at times makes me want to pass out.I think I now know
