Even vigorous exercise can aggravate the condition.After a hernia surgery,you can resume average activities in 3 to 6 days, your professional activities within a week after surgery, driving within 3 weeks and heavy and strenuous activities within 6-12 weeks.Anal sex can be resumed after 3 weeks but it should not be too vigorous. I hope it helps.Take care and regards.
In many cases a GI doc wouldn't be the one to do the surgery on this form of hernia, although I could be incorrect on that. From what I know correcting a paraesophageal hernia is something that is handled by a thoracic surgeon, but please check with your doc on that portion of your question.
physician's assistant were no less than awesome, but still this positive experience has not been able to supplant the fear I believe is associated with my dad's death after hernia surgery. My hernia is a bulge in my lower left quadrant. If I lift things or have a bowel movement the bulging increases. There is occasionally an ache when this happens, but with a light push the bulge disappears back inside.
You don't mention where the hernia is exactly, but that can be when there is a tear in the muscles/weakened muscle wall and the intestines bulge through that. Sometimes nowadays, they try a very conservative approach. And if it's a hiatal hernia, I don't believe they tend to do anything surgically unless it is very large. Chronic cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder) can be a cause of diarrhea. With diarrhea, you can have electrolyte imbalances and dehydration.
Weight loss will be the easiest way to alleviate the symptoms, as it will reduce the internal pressure, but the hernia (tear in the fascia) will remain, and symptoms could certainly recur, unless we have surgery. If any of you has surgery to repair the hernia, I highly recommend a patch. if they just sew it up it will usually recur.
I haven't any idea about hernias but I just had 3 MRIs a couple months ago and my doctors found that I have a hernia between 2 vertebrae in my neck, upper back, and in my lower back. I was told I wont need surgery; as of right now anyway. My doctors think I got hernias from my accident. I was in a train/car accident 5 years ago, New Years Day. I was front seat passenger as a train hit my side of the car, driving across a railroad crossing.
(Did no good) The uroligist checked me out and said it was from the hernia repair surgery, more pain meds. I don't want no more pain meds - Just fix me!!!! The PAIN is bad, a dull pain on the right side in between my testicles and leg, bad pushing pain when I deficate and inscruciating pain in my testicles. I don't know where to go or what to do!!!!!
Four months ago I had a sudden very strong pain the the chest; I was driving anf thought it could be a heart attack except it was on the right side of the chest. Two weeks after that episode I started feeling short of breath; I expected it would go away but it didn't happen. A month after that I went to see a doctor, he checked on my heart, lungs, kidney, liver, one test after the other; at last (as I had at first told my doctor) they checked on my stomach and found I had hiatal hernia.
He had wanted me to do as many Kegels as possible--to strengthen my muscles, but it hurts my sacrum and coccyx area....so it's sort of a problem. I do understand the delay in surgery...I know that I'm not rushing to the table, but I want a timeline....I want him to tell me....."We will wait until xxxxxx days pass, and then schedule the surgery"... As for my latest MRI on my tailbone injury area....I have severe inflammation of my sacro-iliac joint...and it's a sort of arthritis.
Can a person with no active sports activity get a sports hernia? But I do a lot of house hold work like cleaning, moving things around etc. Is surgery the only remedy for this. Can this be cured using medication and may be physiotherapy am a student now and I am joining a company in another 2 months. Is it possible to get this resolved during this 2 months. I am once again sorry for such a long post. Please I would be really grateful if somebody can help me with this. thanks, suzie.
It was hard to stand, and typically just thought of it as my Hiatal Hernia, because sometimes if my Acid Reflux disease acts up, and I turn the wrong way, I have Hiatal Hernia attacks where It's hard to stand, and I get a lot of pressure in my side and trouble breathing... but it got so persistent! I fought through it the next two weeks and while at work, one day, I started getting these cold and sharp feelings under my ribs on my left side.
I am a healthy person, but this heart/hernia thing is driving me nuts. My lifestyle has completely changed in the last 5 months since the AFIB episode since I started getting these PVC's. Would love to hear any advice or feedback anyone has. I know there are many people who explain similar stories on here and I'm just wondering if there is ONE success story out there of anyone at all that has come back from this and figured out what to do?
E and a really lovely doctor sat with me for an hour ruling out things i was worried it might be and assured me it sounds exactly like GERD or either a hiatus hernia or ulcer - I had an endoscopy booked for 15 July... until he then got the results of my urine dip back and told me I was pregnant!! (over the moon as been trying for over two years). So obviously couldnt have the camera down my throat after all.
OK 2 weeks ago went for another ultrasound, when she pressed done in the middle under ribcage, it really really hurt, also hurt under right but not as bad as the middle. Next day dr's office calls, you have to go for surgery NOW to get gallbladder out. So I go see the surgeon he pokes me more looks at my slides, and tells me a little about the surgery. He did say if there was alot of inflamation I might have to go for open.
For 8 mths now I've been suffering with pressure, burning, feeling like I can't breath right & those are just the primary symptoms. I have had other bizarre symptoms like dizziness, feeling like I'm going to pass out, burning up into my throat & left ear, & I could go on but I'll cut it short there. I have a small hiatal hernia & several have told me this could be the very thing causing my problems.
I have to have laparotomy surgery on July 10th to remove my left ovary and tube. They found a cyst over 3mm but, doctor says its not a ovarian cyst. Its some kind of fallopen tube cyst. Anyway, he said I have to have the left ovary removed with tube, also I have very bad scar tissue from other surgeries, along with a mesh in my stomach from a herna repair. All this seems to be twisting together. I have to have two doctors in the operating room.
I had complications rsulting in open surgery in May of 1997 (the wrap had slipped up into my chest and an accompanying paraesophegeal hernia resulted. I am currently having problems again ... but surgeons are unable to diagnose since symptoms and anatomy do not seem to correlate. The procedure solved my reflux. I needed it and would make the same choice again, but I am having problems yet unsolved as a result.
Should I be concerned or is this a common symptom after this type of surgery and if so, how long until it goes away? Thank you very much for any help that you may offer.
The head pain yes............the surgery no..
RECENTLY I HAD LAPROSCOPIC NISSAN FOR GERD AND A HYATAL HERNIA, THE SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS, BUT MY QUESTION WAS; WHERE CAN I GET PROFESSIONAL ADVICE FOR HOW LONG RECOVERY FROM THIS SURGERY SHOULD TAKE?
IT ALL STARTED AFTER INGUINAL HERNIA SURGERY. IT FEELS LIKE AN AIR BUBBLE THAT WON'T BURST. IT HAS CONTINUED FOR ALMOST A YEAR. I HAVE SEEN MANY DOCTORS AND BEEN TESTED FOR MANY THINGS BUTTHE DOCTORS ARE DUMBFOUNDED AT THE SYMPTOMS, MAINLY BECAUSE THEY COME AND GO LIKE CLOCKWORK. THE PAIN IS WORSE WHEN LYING DOWN AND IT IS PAINFUL TO BREATHE OR BEND. IT'S LIKE SOMETHING IS CUTTING OFF MY BREATHING. THEY THOUGHT IT WAS MY GALL BLADDER AND IT WAS REMOVED BUT THE SYMPTOMS HAVE CONTINUED AS BEFORE.
Anyways, my question is this...I NEED to get back into surgery, my hernia is driving me crazy....so I want to be sure that when I go the hospital this time and the go through the whole process again, that I get it done. Has anyone had this issue with going into surgery and SVT's popping up? what do they do for people with SVT's heading into surgery?
My surgery was a little different than these other people. I also had a hernia repaired during the same surgery! My symptoms started during my pregnancy with twins which was six years ago(1994) . I had frequent lose bowel movements and cramping with each meal. I pretty much lived with the symptoms thinking that I just had a change in my bowels since having the twins, not knowing that this was abnormal. My attacks got worse until I finally went to see a Doctor(1999).
the worst part about this and the part that I hop will help you is that the specialist after the surgery when I spoke to the doctor who performed the surgery and he told me the size of it I said to him "I guess then i made the right decision in terminating the pregnancy considering the cyst was so big" he then said to me that he would have performed the surgery on me pregnant.
Almost four months after surgery, I am still experiencing massive swelling and excruiating pain with inflammation. I was having a great recovery for the first ten days, then BAM! My leg, knee and ankle swelled to gigantic proportions. My doctor has said only that I have arthritis in my knee and I have to be patient. On at least three occasions, I have been in tears in his office and asking what to do about it. He still tells me be patient. This is surely not normal.
Discomfort from gas between shoulders, nothing bad just did not expect that. Waiting for the surgery was worse then the surgery...Best of luck to you!
then the skin on my neck had never adhered after my original spinal fusion so I had that repaired in 2006. Somewhere in the midst of another surgery I also had a hernia repair which meant reopening a small potion of my abdominal tightening. Anyway I am no stranger to surgery :) Recently my forearms have had periods of weakness. All the pain comes from the top of my forearms just before the bend in my arm. Both sides. I can feel the pull of the tendon there and the nerve pain.
I wonder if the GI doc thought you were just a hypochondriac, but finally paid attention when another doctor noticed something. Very unimpressive. Sorry to hear you need hernia surgery. Surgery can be very hard on a body, and many Lyme patients reported feeling a lot worse afterwards. If it isn't an emergency, you might want to put it off for a little while to let Lyme treatment knock the infection back a bit first.
Hi Niki I am only about 3 1/2 months post op so I can't really tell you but I am curious about this also as I have heard from different ppl that symptoms seem to come back around the 5 year mark. For me, many of them didn't even go away but the ones that did have stayed away for now. I'm really sorry to hear that you feel they are coming back...after 3 surgeries you deserve a lifetime of relief!! I wonder if it would be good idea to contact your NS and get it checked out?
