In the past few days, the pain from my hernia was worse than I'd ever felt before. It was my fault for not following my very own hernia mitigation guidelines, particularly the diet-related ones. The biggest culprit was my binge-consumption of dairy products, especially ice cream and condensed milk, which we use to make "coffee treats." Once a coffee treat is made, I drink it down in one breath. They're usually twelve ounces. So on Monday and Tuesday, I completely eliminated all dairy. The hernia no longer hurts, and my weight and waist are noticeably lower.
