As long as you are not currently experiencing bowel entrapment (incarcerated hernia) or a bowel obstruction, then you do not need an emergency hernia operation. If, on the other hand, you were in the hospital for 4 days because of incarcerated hernia or bowel obstruction, then your hernia should be repaired as soon as possible.
