My mother had a mesh put during her initial debulking surgery and not due to a hernia problem. She developed a nodule at the site from which they drained fluid to diagnose her OVC. She is now 4 months post op but still feels lot of stretch internally at the mesh site. Other than that she has had no problems. She was even able to take IP chemo with this mesh inside.
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.
I was diagnoised in 1997 w/ breast cancer, bilateral masectomy/saline implants. I've had to have several implant replaced over the years along w/ surgeon dissatisfaction, so I was ref. to new surgeon & suggested tram surgery.
Anyway, I remember when I was young being very upset when I noticed one of my testicles appearing to be lower than the other, my dad told me it was normal so I ignored it and presumed it was normal, however when I got a bit older and learnt a bit more I kind of realised that it might not be so normal having a large lump of tissue behind my left testicle (painless and squishy).
My question is what will the recovery be like. I looked up the recovery for a gallbladder surgery and recovery for hiatal hernia repair and I think I am in for a lot of pain and weight loss. the weight loss I can take. But the pain I am not looking forward to. I will be home during the day by myself. Would I be able to take care of myself and what will the recovery be like. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I thought it was all due to the surgery. Guess not, she thinks I have an incisional hernia. I see my surgeon Thursday for further evaluation. Has anyone ever had this? I thought after the hysterectomy, removal of the malignant tumor, I was well on the road to recovery. What am I in for now?
(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!!!!!
My 5 y.o. Jack Russell Terrier (runt, about 8-10 pounds max) has a lump on her back/bum right at the base of her tail, to the left side and is about the size of a half dollar. It protrudes about a 1/2 inch if not more. It is soft, not hard and not causing her any pain. It disappears into her pelvis when pressing on it and will return in a very short amount of time (30 seconds - 1 minute or so). It seems to bulge farther when barking.
Hi. I think the question of recovery from the surgery is best answered by the doctor who is treating you, since he can actually examine you and tell you what else you need to do to hasten your recovery. In general, the speed of recovery would depend on how strong the patient's body is prior to the surgery, and the presence of any other chronic illnesses (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, COPD) which may hamper full recovery.
She will have to have more surgery and has been referred to see a hernia specialist to remove significant scar tissue. Carrie has had to cut back her work hours to 3 days per week, due to chronic pain that her doctor attributes to nerve damage. "I don't like to miss work. It's not easy. I can't lift because of the pain. And if I get bumped there, or if I sneeze, I almost pass out." "My kids know I'm in pain on that side and 'don't touch me on that side.
Hello - I recently had an open inguinal hernia repair on 11/19. They did not use mesh because my tissue was so healthy, so it was repaired strictly with sutures. I'm going on my third week and feeling almost back to normal: I run a dog sitting/training business and am back to regularly walking and working with dogs (the ones that don't jump :). Yesterday I was walking two dogs down a hallway and they pulled after a cat.
I had an inguinal hernia repair about 8 months ago.. Started noticing another lump forming about a month after surgery and by 2 months after surgery the seroma had pushed through completely into my inguinal area - looked as though the hernia was back. Had 2 ultrasounds, 1 cat scan and 3 drainages done... Each time it was drained they got more and more out, however it has never completely gone away.
Also, information found in medical literature has consistently demonstrated a reduced hernia recurrence rate when surgical mesh is used to repair the hernia compared to hernia repair without surgical mesh. For example, inguinal hernia recurrence is higher with open repair using sutures (primary closure) than with mesh repair. So, if the defect is large you may need a mesh, please discuss the options with your doctor. Regards.
I had an EGD done. He said the hernia was large enough to do the operation. So three weeks post surgery, I'm on here looking for answers. The surgery took about an hour and a half. I hurt so bad coming to. A Gallbladder surgery was nothing compared to the NF. I had them frequently give me pain meds through my IV, which I think was Demerol. I don't think it worked very well, I was in a lot of pain, but I don't think they were giving me very much, if any, I just don't know.
The presence of a hernia after endoscopic surgery is a known side effect. Walking after surgery is an important aspect of recovery and to prevent deep vein thrombosis. Ashutosh (Ash) K. Tewari, MD www.cornellroboticprostate.org This forum is for information only.
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.
The head pain yes............the surgery no..
Hiatal hernias are NOT inoperable. They almost never require surgery, but in severe cases, surgery can be done. Have you tried a GERD-friendly diet? Have you had pulmonary testing?
He clearly presented the surgery as a breeze with quick recovery. Post op appointment he wants to talk about another surgery. He doesn't want to talk about my hip pain, he wants to smooth talk me about another surgery that has a 12 month recovery! I am doing fairly well at 8 weeks compared to others here, but I am not convinced this surgery will end up being something I'm glad I did. I did not realize that he was both a salesman and a doctor.
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).
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.
I just got mine done on 2/5 and I will say this the initial recovery form surgery was a lot better than the framinotomy, but I haven't seen any improvement. So that is a big fat dagger........... in the neck. I would say go for the Framinotomy first, the initial recovery will suck more, but you won't have a peice of steel in your neck, no matter how miraculous people say the prestige or whatever that thing is.
I ran a full course of antibiotic Keflex and now 2 weeks after surgery it is still a hard knot. This coincerns me. anyone having this? What is under there and how long does this go on? Other 3 incision sites look excellent.
Also, if the mediation doesn't work, how difficult is the surgery to repair the hernia? What is the recovery period, and how much pain will she be in? Appreciate any answers you may have. Thank you.
Most hernia repairs are done in a very non invasive manner. It is just a matter of placing the herniated material back into place and sutruring the rip. It has been some time since I scrubbed for a hernia repair and I know many advances have been made. I would guess that it could be done out patient. As with any surgery though you should take it easy for the required time for healing.
I had a hiatal hernia so none of the suggested relief methods were working for me. The surgery recovery was tough to say the least and 2.5 years later I was still having the exact problems mentioned (post op), especially running to the bathroom after EVERY meal. In Dec 02 my husband and I started on the Atkins low carb diet.
Really lost here. Hoping for some help! This is on behalf of my husband. He has been sick since September. After a LOT of tests, he had a HIDA scan that revealed an ejection fraction of 16%. He had his GB removed laproscopically on 2/2/10 with no complications. However, he has had no relief either from any of his symptoms. Symptoms are as follows: constant nausea, abdominal pain, oily/bile diarrhea, lump in throat (<~ NOT caused by anxiety).
