If hernia is giving problem and there is the age factor as well. Then it can be operated under local anesthesia. An experienced surgeon should do it. So better take opinion of a well reputed experienced surgeon at your area or in Lahore where I belong to.

The treatment of hernia is surgery. It's true sometimes because of age and
other factors it's difficult to operate upon.
However when hernia becomes complicated and surgery is required this is
possible in a proper set up where anesthesia facilities and surgical
expertise are available .
Proper patient evaluation is very important.


Hernia can always be operated regardless of the age
It can even be done even under local anesthesia

When hernia becomes painful, it means it has become obstructed, is an
emergency, which if get strangulated, (next stage of obstruction),if not
operated immediately can be life threatening , therefore you should contact
some responsible Surgeon for definitive advice
