Today we had Michael's consult for his hernia surgery. The doctor examined him and determined that he has a small hernia on one side and a larger one on the other side. The type of hernia that he has is a inguinal hernia. The surgeon will repair it with an outpatient procedure. The surgery is scheduled for Friday, July 8th.
Michael is on heart medication to slow the enlargement of his aorta from Marfan syndrome. He will have a cardiac consultation, as well as an echocardiogram, prior to the surgery. That is scheduled for this upcoming Monday and then we will go from there regarding the surgery. Hopefully that will be a good visit and the surgery will simply be a routine procedure.
