PATRICK SWAYZE'S DOUBLE HERNIA

PATRICK SWAYZE GOES UNDER THE KNIFE

"DIRTY DANCING" hunk Patrick Swayze won't be doing his legendary sexy hip moves any time soon -- not after undergoing surgery for a DOUBLE hernia. (O-O-O-OW!!) The 48-year-old actor checked into LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in late November for an operation to treat the condition, which can become serious if left unchecked. "Patrick had been having severe discomfort in the pelvic area and was concerned so he had it treated," a close pal revealed. It hasn't been a very good year for the star -- in June he crashed his small twin-engine plane in Arizona.
