He is going to try to do it as an outpatient, but due to some other problems, they may have to move me to the hospital to stay a few days (doing it at a surgery center). My question is, how big would the incision have to be? How long of a recovery should I expect. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I am having surgery to repair a Hiatal Hernia. Has anyone had this done recently? What can I expect? Is it in and out surgery, how long were you out of work, what could you eat, etc.?
You may leave the same day but if the hernia was large you may be asked to stay in hospital for aday.After surgery your vital parameters will be monitored and depending on the parameters you will be discharged. Once back home avoid lifting or strenuous exercise for at least the first two weeks, light exercise like walking can be done. The recovery time varies person to person and depends on your general health condition and extent of hernia.

My friend has to go into hospital for a benign tumour removal shortly. As he and I have never been in hospital he is wondering what will happen when they take him in for the op. He knows he will have to change into a hospital gown. He is wondering if they will examine him first, want to see him naked etc. Any help for my worried mate would be appreciated. Thanks.
I had two surgeons working on me, one being the chief of surgery at the hospital. These rupture quite frequently, with the fluid remaining in women's abdomens for months/years. So, I actually considered myself lucky; if the silly thing was gonna rupture, why not do it while two doctors are looking at it, knowing where all the fluid was going and washing it out as it happened? So far, so good. A little over two years later...
my daughter had hernia surgery at 24 months and my nephew at 18months. We were terrified but she was in and out in an hour and really only miserable for that 24hr period. She didnt even stay the night at the hospital. THe hardest part was keeping her activity level down for the first two weeks, which was the doctors request. Good luck to you I'm sure everything will go fine.
Hi, If they are done laparoscopically, recovery would be faster. The hospital stay would be shorter, scar would be minimal and pain may not be for a long time. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.

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.
My brother in law had hernia surgery 5 weeks ago as an outpatient w/ no hospital overnite stay. (he is currently in jail in Texas) over the following weeks he had fever and severe pain which he consistently complained of, but no doctor followed up on his surgery procedure. A week ago his stitches ruptured due to infection and the smell smelled like rotten eggs which means it was very infected. he had to have emergency surgery to rectify the situation.
This may have been asked before but are there any essentials that people took with them for the hospital stay after surgery? Also how important was it after hospital stay, for you to have someone be with you at home? The only person I have that can stay with me, is my mother. Problem is, she has hypertension, diabetes, and a hernia. Often times she spends at least half a day barely functioning so I'm not sure how much help she would be. What kinds of help did you need at home?

Hello, You can get a tummy tuck from a good plastic surgeon when the hernia repair is done but the hospital stay may get prolonged. ‘It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I ignored my doctor this time and forced my brother to take me back to the hospital. I went back to the same hospital that did the surgery, for I figured it would be best, since they had all of my records and recent history of the operation. I waited for three hours in the waiting room and when I was finally put in a bed, I waited another hour for a doctor. The doctor was very arrogant in her response when I alluded to the fact that something was wrong.

Some infants are placed on ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) which is a heart/lung bypass machine which gives the lungs a chance to recover and expand after surgery. If a diaphragmatic hernia is diagnosed early in gestation (~24 to 28 weeks), fetal surgery may be an option to be considered. Expectations (prognosis) Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a very serious disorder.
He is bright and beautiful. He had a surgery at the children's hospital in NY and was there for 2-3 weeks. I helped his mom take care of him that summer. He ate like a little hog and still does. He did not go through his milestones like his daddy did...walking talking...but neither did my other grandson. My kids did everything early but I was with each one of them for the first 5 years.
I believe and operation could be done but your friend would need blood transfusions to replace the blood he lost during the surgery. Some people say that if hernia explodes inside the body, it will kill the person. No, not true. If his intestines get twisted in the hernia that is what your relative needs to be concerned about. See information below as to what danger signs are. Hep C is not the problem.
Fortunately, I got mom's genes and have a healthy heart - just a wacked stomach. I'd really like to find out if laproscopic surgery to correect the hiatal hernia will make all of this go away. I had a friend who did it and is fine now, but others who say it's a bad move - that you're never the same again in eating habits, pain, full-feeling, etc. I'm 34/m and sick of this ****. By the way, don't forget to remember our Marines fighting in Iraq!! It's my old unit!
Every other surgery he has had within 10 mins of the surgery he is up and awake and ripping open his stitches, which is what we prepared them for. I personally think the arrogant anethetist gave him a sedative of some sort which is risky cause of his heart. The theatre staff in recovery were lovely. It took 5 hours to wake him up and we couldn't get his oxygen sats up so they said he had to stay in over night on 2litres of oxygen.
IS IT NORMAL TO HAVE ALOT OF ABDOMINAL SWELLING AFTER THE SURGERY ? HOW LONG WILL THE SWELLING LAST ? I AM NO LONGER GASSY BUT STILL SWOLLEN AND FEEL SOOO BLOATED IN THE ABDOMIN AND ABSOLUTELY HATE IT !!!!!
I am 5 days post-op from an incisional hernia repair. I too have a stomach that has blown up and rock hard. My feet and legs are edematous with 1+ pitting edema. I am to stay on a clear liquid diet till I see the surgeon again in two weeks. By the time I see him, I will have been on a liquid diet for 20 days.I talked to him today and he says "it is all normal and will take time to heal" He says the fluid is from the IV I had. I have never heard of this.
Currently my grandfather who is nearing 100 years of age has a hernia near his groin and has made 2 trips to the emergency room to massage it back in. He says that he ails in pain when the hernia pops out and is nearly immobile. Apparently after having a long talk with my father, he has had this problem for about a year and has been pushing it off to see what it leads to.
it has more to do with my present circumstances of recovery time and not having anyone to stay with me after surgery. Again, I am very sorry if I seemed cold and callous. I did not mean to at all. Please delete this thread if you feel the need to.
He had to stretch my esophagus several times and then found I also have a Hiatal Hernia as well. This had been putting extreme pressure on my diaphragm/stomach for awhile I think. Lying down after eating always made it better. So now, I will have to live with episodic esophageal dilatations in the future. It was absolutely no fun and it has taken me about 4 days for the inflammation to go down in my throat. I will also have to stay on OTC Prilosec in the future.
