Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery bruising


Avatar n tn It's been a week since imbilical hernia surgery and my belly button is black with a foul odor. what to do?
Avatar f tn i had hernia surgery in january, did you have keyhole or open surgery? i have had two hernia's one three years ago and the other this year, if i had it all over again i would have got a double done the first time, first one was keyhole second was open.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I had hernia surgery 7 1/2 wks ago cannot believe the pain i have had. It was a spagelian hernia and I am a female. After surgery my incision & other private parts swelled up the size of a cantelope and turned black & blue , so pain full couldn't walk. bruising and swollen from upper thighs to belly button and around both sides. Said it's a hematoma. Used mesh but that's all I really know.
Avatar n tn I had three of them (one umbilical, and two by the testicals). Usually, surgery is the primary method of fixing a hernia and it usually costs around $15,000+ to have it fixed. If you don't have the money to have it fixed, by all means, if you are a US Citizen, check with your local Department of Economic Security (DES) and see if their health insurance program can help you. In my case, I was a college student (with little money) and they were my only option at the time.
Avatar m tn I have been warned about any surgery to repair this as there is a great risk that I might loose the testicle as the result of surgery do to some complication. Prior to the hernia surgery, the surgeon told me to be prepared to loose the right testicle during the surgery. I then refused to sign the conscent forms. I was very pleased to wake up still having my testicle. All the best.
Avatar f tn knew i would take care of her so we went home on beli ribbon blanket for 2 months and had to keep being tested.than we had reflux start with a belly button hernia almost had to have surgery till the blockage finally passed.neitherless problem after problem.shes been in speech and pt about a year.and tomorrow we see ot.we have early intervention and early start also involved.but its always the question what issue is causing which problem.
Avatar n tn Weight loss will be the easiest way to alleviate the symptoms, as it will reduce the internal pressure, but the hernia (tear in the fascia) will remain, and symptoms could certainly recur, unless we have surgery. If any of you has surgery to repair the hernia, I highly recommend a patch. if they just sew it up it will usually recur.
Avatar n tn im scared now my 8 week old son has just had surgery to repair a inguinal hernia n he has severe swelling and bruising and the surgeon told me not to worry n that it was normal
Avatar m tn I am scheduled to get an open surgery for an umbilical hernia on the 25th. The surgeon specializes weight loss lap band surgeries. I found a highly regarded hernia specialist that I could use but may be a longer wait. Is it worth it?
Avatar m tn I am probably having surgery soon. I have MANY chiari symptoms. 12+...After surgery do most people only have alleviation of headache or other symptoms too (i.e. - dizziness, imbalance, slurred speech, etc). Dr. Ellenbogen at University of Washington said all they can really guarantee is that headache will get better after PFD. But Dr. Di said all symptoms could get better. Anyone have input on this?
Avatar n tn I am a 57 yr.old woman who had surgery for stage 3 colon cancer in May 2003, immediately followed by 6 mos. of chemotherapy (5FU and Leucovorin). My CEA count was 22 before the surgery; it went down to high-normal during chemo, but started to slowly rise half-way through chemo and is now at 102.9. I've had several PET/CT scans, barium enemas, colonoscopies, and a bone scan, all with "unremarkable" results except for a large hiatal hernia.
Avatar n tn Discomfort from gas between shoulders, nothing bad just did not expect that. Waiting for the surgery was worse then the surgery...Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn Boy you are awful YOUNG to have to go through that surgery. I had the Nissen Fundoplication surgery in September of 1995. It worked wonders until this past February. I have since found out this surgery is only suppose to last 7 to 10 years maximum. Until February I had no heartburn or acid reflux. It was really terrific. I had my procedure done laproscopically. The one thing that I remember about the surgery is I had a heck of a time getting out of bed for the first couple of weeks.
93210 tn?1287457826 Although we have all heard of people who will find a doctor willing to do surgery on them even though they do no qualify for the surgery. And lastly, she was indeed condesending by telling me and others that need to lose a lot of weight that all we need to do to lose is to try harder. And that these weight loss surgery's should only be reserved for those who have a life threatening condition(s) due to the obesity. Oh, and the kicker, I need to be honest with myself.
Avatar m tn I just had double hernia surgery and i am worried about my condition. I just want to know if my testicles are suppose to be swollen and bruised?
Avatar n tn Ist was Novasure and 1 ovary removed. The second was hystertomy and hernia repair. Third was hernia repair from the 2nd surg. Ever since my last surgery in November I have had several UTI's (currently have dark red urine in the a.m.), bruising from Pubic bone to hip bone (Sometimes it is more bruised than others), and have incredible pain on my right side pubic bone and the groin area. I am able to do physical activity for about an hour and then the pain increases and the bruising worsens.
Avatar n tn I would just ask him if he thinks you are a good candidate for fundoplication surgery? If he says no, ask him why not? If he says yes, ask him how having the hernia repair will effect your activity level post-op? Lifting heavy items (over 10 lbs) will not be an option for many months after this surgery....Im in no way a medical professional just another pt.
5581828 tn?1379815092 I talked to the surgeon about it at my 6 week follow up, and he said it was probably bruising. My GP doesn’t think it’s bruising, because this long after surgery it should have cleared up (unless there’s fresh bleeding, which neither doctor thinks there is.) He thought it was a hernia, but couldn’t find one. He’s now certain that it’s not a hernia, and not bruising.
Avatar n tn Was diagnosed about 5yrs ago, thinks he may have had it for at least 30 years. Stopped drinking alcohol when he found out. He had a hernia repair a month ago, started developing ascites, then developed peritonitis, sodium levels dropped to 19, went back up to 24, then back down to 20 and this is even while he is on a med called samsca which helps keep sodium levels up. The kidney dr states his kidneys are fine, but they are trying to keep his liver from destroying his kidneys.
Avatar m tn We are currently stuck in an information vacuum with the healthcare providers because the surgeon who was going to remove her spleen and repair an umbilical hernia cancelled the surgery and referred her to a more advanced facility. The insurance company refused the refferal because the doctor is out of network and somewhere along the line the referral was mistakenly sent in for "idiopathic scoliosis" instead of the real problem regarding the spleen, liver and umbilical hernia.
Avatar n tn i went for a workout and after i got home in the shower i noticed that it was slightly bluer then before... i think its something with the circulation..i've had surgery for a hernia before and it hasn't really bothered me either... i excercise regularly but i smoke 3-5 cigarettes a week.. and i've been smoking on and off for a few years... i tried googling my symptom and wound my way here so i decided to post my question and hopefully get an answer...
173119 tn?1297003336 sensation deep behind my navel and I can feel a knot when I press in that area. I had quite extensive bruising below the navel after surgery, because that is the incision where the camera was inserted so a lot of manipulation went on in that area. But I am starting to have a deep, pulling, aching pain there daily and it's not very comfortable...could it possibly be adhesions forming? I feel like some little person is sitting inside me behind my navel and twisting and pulling it....Any ideas?
Avatar n tn any ways i have fout scars on my belly where the doctors were trying to enter but couldnt because i had inguinal hernia surgery prior to this in 1998. well i had a ultra sound done to see why i have pain and nothing came up. well i still have pain especially when i spat down doing weight lifting. i owned squat with 50 ibs is this too much? should i go back to doctor?
Avatar n tn This pain goes right through to my mid back causing back pain sought of a bruising feeling. Also I burp alot. I have had ultrasound to check for gallstones etc, barium meal and endoscopy but nothing found. Pain seems to be more often now, sometimes goes away but comes back. I can't stop worrying about it.
4810126 tn?1503946335 Greetings & How do? I'm journaling to let those interested know what's been going on with me medically & to express my current mental & emotional state. I'd like to document my ongoing recovery & impressions for anyone who might have to go through the same. I'd also like to share my experience thus far with having to take opiate painkillers post-op & to be witnessed in that sense by you, my comrades-in-arms.
Avatar f tn The other day, I bumped that area on the countertop and realized it was sore--feels like bruising. Then I noticed that there is a hard lump just next to my belly button that is sore (also could be sore from pushing on it though!). It doesn't really hurt, but is sort of a burning pain inside (not severe), comes and goes, worse obviously when I push on it, and it feels like it's bruised or something.
Avatar f tn I too have similar pain to yours from a failed large abd/hernia repair. I am inoperable but if surgery will help you I encourage you to investigate the possibility. PMP have offered Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in an attempt to alleviate some of the pain. That may also be an option for you. If you have nerve pain there are medications that can effectively relieve some of that pain. You are approaching this correctly.
Avatar m tn Now the scrotum looks small and empty, the remaining testicle is high in the scrotum following a hernia surgery on that side in 2006. At a first close look one would have the impression that there areno testicles at all. Only by feel can one tell that there is a right testicle. Had I known what I know now, I would have gone to the urologist the first day after the vasectomy. Better yet I would have had the urologist do the vasectomy instead of a general surgeon.
