    #2 - Pretty sure a clinician is not going to “just touch your balls”. They are going to perform a physical exam, namely looking for palpation of the painful area, or common locations of hernias to elicit a “bag of worms” feeling. Trust me when I say this, I sincerely hate doing this shit more than you hate having it done to you. I wonder if people realize that this type of attitude by patients is why clinicians fucking hate their jobs most of the time.
    If I am thinking about this correctly, it seems hernia aggravation correlates with ΔP/T rather than total internal P. Additionally, we can be pretty sure the clinician doesn't just want to touch my balls, but not completely sure; We'll peg it at 10%. Does this seem right?

    In reference to my above comment, P = pressure, T = time (should have used lower case t). By "aggravate", I meant "increases awareness of, pain or discomfort from the hernia" (not an increase in the severity of the hernia or a further increasing of the size of the aperture).

    Simply put, does a rapid change in internal pressure aggravate a hernia, while a slow change in internal pressure may not, even if total internal pressure far exceeds the transient increase? This is probably a question ony those who have experienced hernias can answer.
