Hi, the surgeon is sending me for a scan to see if he can determine which way to do the operation, he has the choice of a quick cut and stitch up, keyhole inserting mesh, or full frontal! e.g. open up and stitch everything on the way out. I'll settle for the first one as this means minimal intrusion and a short hospital stay, of course as it doesn't give any problems I could opt to leave alone, but it has nearly doubled in size since I saw him last.
