My husband had hernia repair in Oct 2006, and is still experiencing pain, numbness and pins and needles, along with excruciating pressure near his incision. We have been to see several dr.

They also previously checked me for celiac disease and I don't have it. I have to have surgery for the very large para-esphogical hernia. The pathology report on my breast abnormality came back cancer free as well, so I have have much to be grateful for. However, I did not do as well in the recovery room after my minor surgery. I was in there for over three hours and they had to put me on oxygen and cover me with heated blankets. My hands were icy cold and I could not stay awake.

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.
I have had disc surgery twice and my neurosurgeon agees with my neurologist's diagnosis. I have numbness in both feet and legs with the left being worse than the right at this point, but the numbness is gradually moving up my legs. My finger tips are now becoming numb. Is there any new treatment for cidp? I really don't want to take steroids because ofr the side effects which seem to be worse than the disease.
Hi, I had a left inguinal hernia repair done approximately 1 1/2-2 months ago. After the surgery I noticed that my left testicle hund a lot lower than it did before and it was causing considerable discomfort. i soon realized that I was able to draw up my right testicle at will but the left one would not move at all. i brought my concern to my surgeon who said that some numbness is common and he wanted to see me in a month.
(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!!!!!
HI, I'm 30 years old. During my pregnancy I had an abdominal hernia surgery. 2 weeks after I gave birth my hips went out. For a period of 2 weeks I couldn't stand, walk, anything. This went on for a bout a year. On to my question: About 3 years ago I got food poisoning. Since that day, My upper right thigh has never been the same. Pins and Needles. Numb. Hurts to touch. This morning I woke up in severe pain, the worse I had ever felt. It hurts to sleep! I don't know what to do.
It gets you out of their surgery, dosn't it. Think of all the coffee and French and Italians drink, much stronger and lethal than ours, and yet they drink it all day. Also think of Turkish coffee!!!!!!!! We only consume a small amount (mostly instant) of coffee - it is a natural products, whereas drugs are not. It's like when we were told that butter was bad for us - but manufactured spreads were "good" - pull the other one - please!!!!!! I was once told by an older doc.
A prostate ultrasound (done rectally) will give an idea of the state of the gland and whether it is enlarged. Feelings of numbness following surgery can be present for several weeks and even months but it is unlikely that the problems detailed are due to surgical intervention. Reversal of the vasectomy will not really help in this situation as the surgery will only cause further trauma and scarring.
I have numbness,burning and stinging in and around my bellybutton after umbilical hernia surgery six months ago what do you think the problem is?
Is it normal to experience numbness and tenderness almost 7 months after a tummy tuck/hernia repair. I also experience mild swelling on a weekly basis. I'm concern that this may be an infection or I'm just not healing properly. Any advise or insight would be great.
Can this be related to the Barretts or small hietal hernia or did they miss something on my cardiac workup? I was placed on 3 20mg Prilosec a day 2 weeks ago for the Barrett's but I still get this discomfort. I never really had any acid reflux to speak of. I am getting concerned that maybe it is my heart after all since the Prilosec is not working. I just dont know where to turn.
My scalp was still painful for a week, and I noticed a slight numbness in my skin of my upper legs (top of thighs and bottom). The next day, the numbness had spread to my torso area. Over the weekend, this numbness had spread to my fingers, hands and arms. My doctor checked out my reflexes (ok) and booked me for a blood test, to check for vitamin B12 deficiency, etc. 2 weeks later, the blood test results were normal. I am now waiting for a Neurologist appointment, which may take a while.
It has been almost two years since my husband had hernia surgery. Since then he has been very ill. He has pain from the surgery in navel area with shooting pain down his right leg. It has been discovered he has diabetes and is believed to have autonomic neuropathy. He has pressure in his head, a overall sick feeling after he eats with a flushed face, forgetfulness, numbness in his left food, tingling in his hands and feet, light headed when he stands up. He has not driven since.
If this is a permanent side effect of the hernia surgery is there any type of surgery to repair this? This concerns me because i like to play sports and i am very active which is why i opted for the hernia surgery in the first place and the way i feel now is very uncomfortable. I just hope i havent traded one problem for another...thanks for any answers and help you can give me, thanks.
I too have the same problem with my right upper thigh. Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in front...no numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Surgery and Illness History Have had some gastrointestinal problems (constipation/diarrhea/IBS), allergies and repeated sinuses/throat/ear issues for as long as I can remember. Still battle with sinusitis and ear problems which is acknowledged by GP as "wicked allergies" but ENT says he sees nothing wrong with ears which remain chronically painful and crackle as if pressure changing most of the time. 1971 Tonsillectomy.
Hi, I also had this problem after gall bladder surgery. How long ago was your surgery? Did you have any stones in your gall bladder? I started taking digestive enzymes to help with the digestion of my food and that helped with the excessive gas and burning for a while. Things progressively got worse. My doctors couldn't tell me why this was happening or what was going on. Six months after surgery I developed fibromyalgia.

A related discussion, <a href='/posts/show/540563'>epigastric hernia surgery</a> was started.
I have heard this condition is called meralgia paresthetica and can actually be caused by damage to nerves during hernia surgery. Since I know hydrocele is similar to a hernia I was wondering if this is why im having the numbness in my thigh. However, the incision was not made in my groin but rather directly in my scrotum. Do you know of any reason as to why I would have this numbness? I am not obese (i weight only 115 pounds) nor do I wear tight clothing.
