A lady had her inguinal hernia repair done on 7/5/08 and now has a recurrence of the hernia at the same site or just inferior to it. He has to go back in to fix it again on 8/29/08. Would you use a -58 or a 78? 78 is going to reduce the service as -58 wont. Not sure if it should be reduced or what to do.
