Yesterday my wife had to take me to an urgent care place because i fell. the doctor came in and checked my ribs and said that i broke 3 of them. while she was talking to me i told her that i think i may be coming down with a stomach virus and i was having pain in my left side she examined me laying down then standing up in which she confirmed that i have a hernia that needs to be operated on. when my wife called to set up the appointment with the surgeron they asked her about my diabetes and my last a1c (which was 12.8) they told her that i will have to go and be admitted in the hospital at least a day before and after the surgery i will have to stay at least 5 days after. has anyone else hear of this and if so why? and what should i expect? me and the wife are worried since hernia surgeries are usually done on an outpatient visit.
