I could not imaging how these people get on with their life, having to carry huge things in between their thighs. How did they hide this from other peoples? Once I saw a man in a 'kenduri' who had to adjust something in his sarong in order to sit down and eat; and the way he did that, it must be a huge thing.
Almost the whole bowel, from the jejunum to the sigmoid colon were in the hernia. X-rays taken before operation showed bowel shadows lie near the knee joints.
Is there a way to make patients come early?
Probably the goverment (Ministry of Health) should start putting billboards on the highways with a picture like the above with a caption " JANGAN TUNGGU SAMPAI MACAM INI" or "MACAM MANA NAK BUAT KERJA KALAU INI MACAM!"
