I had no idea. But, it’s true. My uncle died from a strangulated bowel. He had a hernia. His bowel got stuck and instead of calling the doctor, despite his immense pain and vomiting, he dealt with it. That was a big mistake which cost him his life. If he had called his doctor, he would have been rushed for emergency surgery and his life would have been saved.
If you have a hernia or history of hernia, do not make the same mistake. A hernia can kill you. It killed my uncle.
