Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, and am not even sure if there is where I should be posting. I have an incisional hernia the size of a grapefruit. I have to have surgery on Wednesday to repair it (he is using mesh). 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.
The doctor examined me and found a groin hernia and I'm scheduled for surgery in sept. I think I want laproscopic but am I going to end up with permanent pain? will the mesh or non-tension method fail to stop the hernia from progressing? I think it's from the gym or coughing from this tracheotomy I'm getting this crippling nausea sometimes and sometimes protonix helps. is it from the hernia or diabetes or GERD? thanks!

Now I look about 3 months pregnant. I am living in Abu Dhabi, but had my surgery in the US before I moved here.

It's been a week since imbilical hernia surgery and my belly button is black with a foul odor. what to do?
I have had a large abdominal hernia since last year after having some surgery. I went to see a surgeon about it in December 2011, he said that I needed alot of mesh with the repair as I have had several abdominal surgeries and he thinks it best to reinforce some of my abdominal walls. I am a little hesitant about the mesh as I have heard some horror stories about developing infection from the mesh. What do you think?
The pain got so bad that I went to see my doctor. Emergency surgery was performed to repair the hernia. In the case of an incarcerated hernia surgery needs to be done as part of the bowel has restricted blood flow that could result in the death of the effected tissue. You would be best of to see your doctor about possible surgery. All the best.
old male) might be experiencing pain from a hernia despite tests that appear to “rule out” hernia. The pain is deep in the lower abdominal area centered around the left abdominal obliques. In the spring of 2005, I experienced left pelvic pain when taking part in physical activity. Today, the pain persists and is exacerbated when I perform physical activity greater than a slow walk or if I sit too long. I have no digestive problems except occasional constipation and gas.
Hi! I think I might have a small inguinal hernia on the left side of my groin above my penis. It doesnt hurt or bother me at all and its been like this for over a year or more since I cant remember. Should I be worried about this or not? I have no pain and everything seems fine. Cough test for physical was ok with no problems but looking into all of this has me a bit worried. Should I post a picture to have a visual? I dont know if thats ok or not, this is my first post.

About three weeks ago, I had laparoscopic surgery for an inguinal hernia. Today, after not having masturbated for about a week, I noticed a trace of blood in my semen, and the semen seemed a bit dark, almost "light tea" colored. Is this from the surgery, clots, an infection or ???? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hello, Redness, swelling and inflammation at the site of stitches of surgery means an infection of the area. First of all get this checked from your surgeon and you may need a course of topical and oral antibiotics. If there is any fluid or pus collection inside the scrotal sacs then it may need to be drained. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Hi, i underwent surgery for Irreducible Umbilical Hernia on 02/09/2012. Prior to that i was having pain at the right side of abdomen as well as at umbilicus area.

1) do nothing and wait, 2) surgery (cholecystectomy), 3) non-surgical options. The standard treatment for symptomatic patients who suffer from gallstones has been to have the gallbladder removed surgically along with its contained stones. Removing the gallbladder may have little or no effect on digestion.
Dear goliath415 , Thanks for writing in. I have reviewed your family history and your yearly PSA (Prostatic Specific Antigen) values. A hernia surgery by itself shall not lead to increase in PSA. However, if you had bothersome urinary symptoms or catheterisation during surgery, it can certainly lead to increased PSA values. You have had a fairly good PSA record and I shall advise yourself to get investigated with urinalysis.
I had hernia, gall bladder, and acheilles tendon surgery all with HCV, get a second opinion.
My mother had bowel obstruction surgery back in January. After the surgery she ended up with a wound infection and was in ICU for 2 days. They left the wound open and was sent home. I had to change the wound three times a day until it closed. About 2 weeks after the wound closed she ended up with a swollen stomach and when I say swollen I mean like she is 9 months pregnant.
It is rare to do an umbilical hernia without mesh these days, unless it is a tiny hernia. While unlikely, after all this time, it could be an infection of the repair. It is also very possible that it is an infection completely unrelated to the surgery, but either way it should be checked out.
I was operated on for an inguinal hernia repair, left side, in 1994. Shortly after my surgery, I developed an infection in the wound. There was a big pimple like thing that had to be cut with a scissor and then pus had to be squeezed out of the wound. The doctors said there was nothing further to worry about. Over the years my complains didn't go away. In year 2004 another surgeon determined that I had to go in for a second round surgery in the same spot. This time around a mesh was inserted.
I currently went to my doctor and he informed me that I have a very slight umbilical hernia. He said he can barely feel it and it seems to him just a small amount of fluid is coming through. He told me that this is very common and if multiple people walked in off the street they would have the same thing. He told me that I don't have to worry about having surgery and I should go about my routine as I normally would (lifting weights, sports etc).
But if there is a swelling or a bulge, you need to consult your doctor to rule out an infection or a recurrence or hernia. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
