Common Questions and Answers about Post hernia surgery swelling

I had inguinial hernia surgery on 12/10/2009 to the left side. Only thing I wonder so far is, if around the 6 inch incision, I should be swelled up as if I had a Bic lighter stiched up inside of me? Anyone else had this much swelling. Please humor me.
After a bilateral inguinal hernia repair, I experienced onset of swelling and excruciating pain in my left testicle, and along the spermatic cord. I was assessed in an emergency, and given an ultrasound, diagnosed with epidiymitis and given a course of antibiotics for 7 days. The Pain and swelling returned and I was given another 7 day course of antibiotics (Cipro, both times). It is now about 6 weeks post op. and I am still having acute discomfort.
The pain could be due to the inflammation post surgery. As the swelling resolves, your pain should decrease. However, if the pain persists or if there is discharge, please consult your doctor. In the meantime you can take OTC Iburpofen pain medication. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis. Apply cold compress to the wound for relief. Take Care! Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Hi There, Asymmetric swelling after a big abdominal surgery makes me think of two possibilities: 1- a post op fluid collection 2- a hernia. I think you deserve a good physical examination and possibly a CT scan. Do not worry about over reacting. It is important to let your surgeon know.
If you have a persistent cough, that could also cause complications that manifest as pain and swelling in the scrotum, post-surgery. Try reducing physical activity and elevate your lower limbs and scrotum (by ensuring that the lower part of your body is resting on pillows or cushions while you are lying down) to see if the pain and swelling subside. If the pain increases or persists over the next 24-48 hours, please call your surgeon for further guidance.
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 !!!!!
After five months of recovery and actually starting to feel well I developed what I was told was a post-surgery hernia. Of course this developed exactly where my incision is from previous mentioned surgery. I then had surgery to repair the hernia using a mesh graft method. This was on the 28th of December. I returned to doctor a week later for follow up and was concerned I did something to re-injure hernia because of swelling. I was told this was fluid build up and is normal.
In your case, if you see a swelling, I am suspecting it most probably to be an incisional hernia, where the abdominal contents protrude through an opening in the incision. But if you don't see a swelling then the pain may be due to scar tissue that forms post surgery. But when in doubt best to have it checked. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Regards.
I think that the kind of hernia surgery you are looking at it is a relatively simple surgery, as far as surgery goes. I don't think the dog will have to be put under deep anaesthesia, the procedure is something that is done close to the surface, and it is a fairly quick operation. I would expect a healthy dog to recover well. Your boy might have some activity restrictions while he is recovering, to keep him from pulling the stitches loose and undoing the procedure.
The fact that you mention the cough test for a physical was OK gives me the indication that you have not had your doctor mention a hernia to you. I had lived with intermittant swelling (lump) in the right inguinal region. Unlike you I had eperienced some discomfort at times while lifting things at work. I used to be a heavy duty mechanic shop foreman. Having had many medical examinations for other problems the possibility of a hernia was never brought out by either my doctor or myself.
After I had open inguinal hernia surgery the left side under the incision became numb and is still part numb after two weeks. But the left testicle has become enlarged has not gone down. Could their be something gonig on other than post op swelling?
The pain could be due to the inflammation post surgery. As the swelling resolves, your pain should decrease. One testicle being lower than the other is a common occurrence. However, if the pain persists or if there is discharge, please consult your doctor. In the meantime you can take OTC Iburpofen pain medication. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis. Apply cold compress to the wound for relief. Take Care! Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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.
How can SO many people have post lap surgery pain with no answers from the doctors? I had my gall bladder removed in 1991 and continued to experience pressure under my right rib and pain from there radiating around to my back. The pain (or more like "discomfort") was more frequent during the first 3 years until today. I had what felt exactly like a gall bladder attack. Ultrasound showed no stones; liver and pancreas were fine.
I had my pre op last week and went in with a list of questions/concerns about the surgery and post op complications, one of my questions were how would I know if I have a cfs leak and your symptoms are exactly what he told me, he said if that happens to go to the emergency room at where I had the surgery and not my local one or even my gp cause they wouldn't know what to do and then he would be called.
Now I face another surgery with this hernia. is this normal or common? What obligations or responsibility should my surgeon have? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/279945'>Had hernia repair after tummy tuck and doesn't look right.</a>.
It was an inguinal hernia and the surgery was done a week ago using normal methods, as opposed to laproscopic. It was not repaired with mesh but with a very thin steel thread (can't remember what it's called). This has been my first surgery and first reason to even go to a hospital so I have NO clue what to expect. Now that a week have passed, swelling is almost gone, minus the hardening of the fat, and bruising is going away.
Hello Sir, I am 29 years andI got my umbilical hernia operation done about one year back. It was laproscopic surgery to implant a mesh. I had the hernia of 1.3 c.m. I developed the same in my 2nd pregnancy .I would like to know if I can start my yoga and dance practice from now onwards? I have already started some mild breathing and physical exercises to get my self fit. If I am pressing my abdominal then I feel mild pain . Is it normal or I need to see the doctor?
testicle pain and swelling post hernia surgery.
While it was originally thought to be scar tissue, it changes size and is getting larger and was just diagnosed as a hernia and needs repair. Now .. the quiz is .. how to get this done without insurance! Am wearing a binder now and hoping it settles down with the binder and some Ibuprofen. If it gets extremely painful I know to go to the emergency room despite the insurance situation. Would just like to hear some POSITIVE thoughts .. about life, friends and perseverence ..
As they have been bothering me more these past eighteen months, I decided to address them and had the right one repaired six days ago (open hernia repair). Since the surgery, in addition to typical surgical pain (I've had 3 c-sections and a hysterectomy in the past), I've been having episodes of EXCRUCIATING, HOT-SEARING pain. It's like having a white-hot knife stab my pelvis/lower abdomen (the "hot" aspect of the pain makes me believe that it's nerve related).
Hi, I am from Canada and thought I would share my experience with hernia surgery. I have had a hernia in my stomach for about a year now. It started from a small lump and grew in to a huge bulge. I never really had any pain from it, but you could see this huge bulge through a shirt, or even jacket. Don't wait as long as I did to get a hernia fixed. I could have avoided a lot of headaches and grief.
free rascals in the diet also cause intestinal irritation and swelling pushing on my hernia. Fixing a hernia without properly supping dense nutrition and avoiding things that cause poor nutrition absorption (unless the bowl is obstructed) is just paying the doctor for a $15,000 band-aid. As of late I have gone Naturopathic instead of Allopathic in my health concerns Joel Wallach is a good name to research.
