Is that one of those ones that go into your ballsack like they always showed us in health class?
I had a friend who had a normal hernia once. He worked for this shitty near-slave-labour company (Teletech) so he couldn't afford an operation until his full medical kicked in. He was just taking lots of pain meds while "holding his insides in place" (his words). Finally he got medical coverage for a surgery and asked for time off. The company denied it, so he said "fuck you" to them and left. Moral of the story: never work for Teletech. Unless it's a choice between that or prostitution (or Wal-Mart).
fortunately it didn't go in to the sac, and I have a high threshold for pain. also, fortunately, I work at a hospital and I'm a member of huge healthcare union, so I was fully covered and had vacation time accrued so I wouldn't have to go on disability. also means I don't have to pay for the lovely tylenol 3. gotta love codeine.
