While this sounds pretty handy, I would still prefer to speak with a medical professional in person about matters that involve my health. There may be questions that the app won't be able to answer right away. There are also other sources of information over the internet. I came across some articles at that discuss bladder problems and treatments in detail.

It's amazing to know how technology has shaped our lives in so many ways. While an app for hernia patients sounds convenient, I would still prefer a live discussion of my health or medical issues with my doctor. There is also added information at for people concerned and interested.
