I have a bulge (hernia) on the right side of my groin. I can feel the break (tare) in the abdominal wall that allows my intestine to protrude. Some people can have a hernia on both right and left sides (double hernia). It sometimes happens that the intestine (while protuding beyond the abdominal wall, BULGING) will get caught, or pinched, by the abdominal muscle while engaged in some kind of muscular or stressful activity and cause intestinal blockage with severe pain (very serious if left to remain pinched, hence the pain). Lie down, relax your muscles, and push your intestine back in (I don't know if it would work the same with a double hernia (I'm not sure I understand your description very well, but I would imagine that even a double hernia would not go lower than the scrotum). From your description, you might have an ENLARGED PROSTATE (causes uneven and interrupted urination), which is most common over the age of forty. If you've ever had a PSA test (I forget what that stands for), I recently read that they are only 20% accurate at best (doctors will tell you differently because PSA tests, just like 98% of everything else doctors do, keeps them in business and puts the food on the table). Just like everything else known to mankind, there are herbal remedies for Prostate problems (starting with Saw Palmetto) that will not be detrimental to your body or make you a medical industry slave for the rest of your life. I never noticed ANY digestive problems with my hernia. It would probably be wise to do exercises (whether or not it's a double hernia) to strengthen the groin (called KEGELS, using your muscles to squeeze the top of the butt together, but you could probably also do alot for your intestine just by improving your digestion (drinking the proper amount of water for your body weight, proper nutrition and probiotics). Ideally going to the bathroom 3 times a day, or at least once a day, would be the result of proper digestion. As far as I remember, there is a hernia forum here at Curezone.
