Hernia surgery recovery groin area

Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery recovery groin area


Hi, How long has it been since your hernia surgery? Recovery time following herniorrhaphy depends on the hernia, the type of surgery (plasty?) and individual factors. The abdominal wall at the site of the incision is bound to be alittle week in the months following the surgery . Any undue exertion, raised intraabdominal pressures due to chronic cough, etc., can result in injury and recurrence of the condition.
A male lower abdominal hernia? I am no doctor, paramedic and I am no longer a combat lifesaver. I work around a lot of steel. At times I have to hand pull 400 foot lengths of cable threw that steel. The big cables weigh in at least 5 pounds per foot. So a lot of people around me tend to get a hernia in the same place amoungst all the other straining injuries. I have also got a straining injury myself, from not wearing the proper underwear of all things.
Hello - I had an 8cm endometriosis removed along with my left ovary through laparotomy (vertical incision) at the beginning of January. It was my first surgery too, and while I was nervous about it, I must say having that monster out of my body was worth it. I was in the hospital overnight, went home the next day and was in quite a lot of pain during the first week...it took a lot of coaxing from my mom to get me to stand and walk, but everyday was significantly better than the one before.
So Maks had his hernia surgery today. He had 3 hernias 1 one each side in groin area and 1 umbilical. The doc said the one on his left groin was so big that his intestine was moving in and out of the hole (hernia) she gave me pics of what the hernias looked like and you could see his intestine. Doc said cause the hole was so big and it was there for a while that it weakend the muscle there so since they did alot of repair to the area that his groin area will be swollen for a few months!
Doctor advised me to do surgery. My report is found negative and I feel I don’t have hernia but I know I have some problem. Looking for second opinion 1. If this is hernia then should I need surgery? 2. What kind of doctor I need to consult now. 3. Can I concern a specialist doctor for Intestine?
Six days after the procedure, I started to get very strong groin pain on the left side of my groin. The pain often radiates up the left side of my penis and into the head sometimes and also radiates down the inner portion of my left thigh. There seems to be some sensitivity in the testicle as well. The overall pain is much worse when I am sitting than when I am lying down or walking. It does seem like bending or activity will make it worse later.
Since the hernia surgery I also have pain that radiates from the surgical area down the inside of my thigh to my knee. As with the left testicle, sometimes this pain is also more noticable during sexual activity. My general health is excellent. I'm 28, normal bodyweight, athletic, don't smoke ,dont drink, and have never had a major illness, but this problem with pain and performance is really getting me down.
I have read plenty of testimonies of those who suffered from scrotum/testicle pain after an inguinal hernia surgery. Many of you have described the symptoms that seemed so similar to mine, but seemingly you all wound up fine, or perhaps the same thing happened to you, but I'll never know, because the majority of testimonies are never followed up.

It's a very unbearable discomfort since it's chronic and unmanageable. However, I do have actual pain in my right groin. After doing my own research, I would call this my spermatic cord or my inguinal canal. The pain is usually dull but I do have some sudden sharp pains that quickly come and go. The other main source of discomfort is my lower right back on my pelvis area right above the buttocks. It feels like this ache that I need to constantly massage to make it feel better.
I am going to request a urine test and abdominal ultra sound for similar pains in right groin area, pubic area, lower and upper abs and sides. Weird strange pains, nothing too harsh but still worrisome. Also I notice a slight burning sensation after peeing and maybe after ejaculation sometimes so I thought maybe it's related. There is one spot on my lower right abdomen area which is tender when I press it a little.
in early February, 2011, at about 2am one night while away on a business trip staying in a hotel, it was like something slipped in my groin area and I was in terrible pain for about 4 or 5 hours. It was bad enough that I was considering going to the ER but decided to tough it out until I could go to a "doc in the box" walk in clinic in the early morning to save some money.
I strongly believe that a penis injury has affected my hernia recovery. The hernia surgeon said to go see a urologist, and the urologist says to go back to the hernia surgeon… Previously, a very healthy and very active 32 year old male. In fall 2012, I felt a pull/stretch on the side of my penis during sexual activity. The pain was only mild, but something felt different. For the next few weeks, it felt like my penis was not attached properly at the base on the left side.
I had hernia surgery in my groin area and now I have to take a physical test and one of the requirements are 25 sit ups. I have done many ab exercises and workouts without soreness or problems and I cannot do a single sit up. Is my hernia operation the source of my problem?
I'm trying to determine if it's high or low in the groin area. I've had inguinal hernia surgery performed twice and on both sides with mesh installed on my right. I'd say that the surgical sites are up high, but I don't want the mesh to be disturbed.
My husband had Robotic Prostate Surgery in April 2012. After the surgery he continues to have pain in the pelvic, groin, back, and also under his testicles. He takes Aleve or Tylenol to see if he can find relief, but these do not work. He told his doctors, and they do not care or just don't want to help him. There has to be something wrong with him. Where is this all this pain coming from? He was not like that before his surgery. Can someone give us advice or suggestions.
When performed by Dr. Elliot Goodman, an expert in gastric disorders and bariatric surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, NYC, GERD from a failed gastroesophageal (GE) valve can be reduced or stopped altogether. EsophyX is an incisionless procedure that recreates a functional GE valve. An endoscope is run down the esophagus where suction pulls a flap of tissue down in order to guard the esophageal opening from the harmful effects of stomach acid.
So I bled away during the surgery, I think the nurse was a bit surprised when I finally got up in the recovery room,,,she was like you'll probably bleed a little....or a lot. I think at the time I was a bit more concerned about flashing the rest of the recovery room patients due to my gown starting to fall apart on my way to the restroom. I've continued to spot after my surgery until my period last week and two days post-period I'm still spotting, so much for my supply of nice undies.
I had the surgery and the recovery was very long and hard. I was 19 at the time. I am 22 now and live in constant pain. After everything with my accident I had been on pain killers so long that I have at this point discontinued them. I feel that they are too easy to become dependant upon and that I cannot function as well mentally with the narcotic fog over me. That said I'm on flexoral and naproxin for inflammation and muscle relaxation.
For about six weeks after that, I did not work out and just allowed that area to rest. The symptoms were minor but I could still feel slight discomfort in my groin. After six weeks, I got back into light jogging again and that created some reoccurring flank pain in my back. So I went to see a sports injury doctor. He did a bunch of tests checking for hernia and hip flexion and he could not determine what was wrong with me.
Someone advised me that it may be a hernia. I sometimes have a slight dull discomfort in my groin area as well. It's on my left side as well. As of lately, the groin area pain and the abdominal pain have been consistent. I'm looking for advice. Can a hernia hurt in both places? If so, can you explain why? Or does this sound like something else? I do not have blood in my stools and I haven't had any recent weight loss or change in my stools. I need advice!
(back pain, testicle pain, groin pain, what seems like butt muscle pain especially when you sit for a while, bend over, or warm up before the game, all associated with the same side of the body usually), let me guess, when you play soccer/football you are right footed : ) ? my advise see a hernia specialist as soon as possible because it could get serious....
1- Go for a good urologist and surgeon using laparoscopic surgery which provides faster wound recovery and leaves no scars, as opposed to regular surgery which takes longer to heal the wound, and leaves a 2-3 inch c-section like scar in your groin area. 2- If money is an issue, get it done at an outside surgery facility not in a hospital, its cheaper, and has a lesser chance of infection... some hernia centers/ OBGYNs/Urologists and such have their own surgery facilities.
It radiates into greater trochanter area of right hip and down my leg -- sometimes going down into the mid-calf area. Quadriceps muscles are not responding to straight leg lifts or lower leg curls ever since. Can't lift my leg up from either a sitting or lying down position yet. I have to lasso my leg with a bathrobe sash and straight leg lift it to get into and out of bed. Am enrolled in PT in an aquatic setting starting next week. Have seen my PCP and requested an EMG study ASAP.
Hello. Your post caught my attention because my husband experienced something similar. For him, his testicle was becoming twisted from time-to-time, but would usually correct itself. It was also sliding partly out of his scrotum to under his skin in the groin area which was causing "binding". His got so bad that he had to have surgery to fix it and now carries on as if nothing ever happened. Perhaps your pain is being caused by your testicle becoming twisted.
It would seem my nerves are not quite where they should be, and rather than making the incision where they said they were going to, they ended up cutting open the scar from hernia surgery. Apparently my nerves are lower and extremely condensed, which may explain why Dr. hernia in the first place, and why both nerves were impacted. Recovery is not quite as bad as the hernia surgery, though it is somewhat more frustrating.
What is the recovery period for surgery with disposable stitches in this area, I am a firefighter my work can be very heavy and I also drive the appliance when required also my drive to work is a 128 mile round trip? I know there were restrictions upon hearvy work and driving etc with a hernia repair but what this surgery? Second question: What could cause a large swelling of lymph node and what would be the implications?
Had a 2nd TURP 9 months later that turned out very good as far as urgency and stream improvement but still pain that moved about in pelvic area from sacrum area, perennial area, penis, hips, bladder. 6 months after 2nd TURP had double Inguinal hernia repair. No improvement to CPPS symptoms though. Dr. put me on regemine of Oxycodone. Urologist recommended I read book: Headache in the pelvis by DR's Wise and Anderson of the Stanford Clinic.
Nikki Hi Ashley, I had pain in my right groin area on and off for months. It didn't last long so I just thought it was my body going through changes (I am almost 42). One day it was more painful so I went to the walk-in medical center. They weren't much help, so I went to my OB/GYN and she felt something during the pelvic exam. She sent me the next day for an abdominal and vaginal ultrasound. I hope you are having a vaginal ultrasound because I think the results are more clear.
I just recently had a major surgery for something called Nutcracker Syndrome. This Syndrome results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist.[1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein).
