Re: [Harp-L] Re: hernia

I have had a couple of hernia repair procedures in the past. My doctors assured me that one was present from birth (double, lower groin area) and the other was caused by trauma from an accident (navel & diaphragm).
I can say from personal experience that both were irritated by playing the harmonica.
The way the surgeon put it was. "The harmonica didn't cause your hernia, it made you aware of it."

I believe Mike Stevens, the fabulous Canadian harmonica player, has had some issues with this.
