Hernia from diverticulitis surgery.

Posted by cwallace2012 @cwallace2012, Oct 3, 2016

I had several surgery for diverticulitis and now have a huge hernia. Mayo clinic was the only one who could help me, so I was told. I have been going since 2012 and had 4 operations there. Well I went to schedule the next appointment and the doctor said he couldn’t help me anymore. And that is what the other doctors at Mayo say also. Geez it may be large but it is a hernia. I am so disappointed in Mayo, and this is the only doctor I have not liked there, and not sure what to do next any suggestions?

Can you share the name of the doctor?


Hi, Wallace. It is difficult to hear that nothing can be done. Our physician experts have likely reviewed your case with their colleagues and determined that Mayo Clinic cannot offer any further treatment that would be beneficial to you at this time. It is our goal to provide the best care each patient needs, however we do not want to have you incur additional costs for evaluation or travel if we do not feel we can offer additional care.

Wallace, perhaps you can explain to us what you understood from the doctor and why they cannot treat your hernia. How was it explained to you?
