Hernia surgery failure

Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery failure


Avatar n tn Any exercise which increases the abdominal pressure is not suggested for you. This might make the hernia surgery a failure. Take all instructions from your surgeon and follow them. Take care!
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor or in the medical field. I just had my umbilical hernia surgery 2.5 weeks ago with mesh. If you have the surgery without mesh you could have another hernia as your putting strain down below and it could come through another weak point. It also can get bigger and quite ugly. It is your intestines that you are pushing and squishing back into your body. It's amazing how much we use stomach. Anything you do while working out, you will use your stomach muscles.
Avatar f tn Hello. Does this sound like a hiatal hernia? I have lfet side pain(burning sensation) under left rib. After a big meal or any food or drink that irritates my stomach I get a pounding sensation in my chest. Sometimes I get dizziness and pressure in my head as well. As well as a pain in my left side of my back behind ribcage. Thanks so much for any insight.
Avatar m tn I had hernia, gall bladder, and acheilles tendon surgery all with HCV, get a second opinion.
Avatar m tn This past June I was in for surgery for ventral Hernia and while I was under that when everything started going down. My EF % was 10-15%. The doctor told me that I have CHF with a Left bundle blockage. They told me that a virus was most likely the cause. I never had any symptoms prior to June. I was in the hospital for surgery in January 2013 for Lower Bowel Obstruction issues and came out of it just fine. I am 41.
Avatar n tn Please help me I am 52 year old lady....Last year i got operated for VVF & hernia...every this was normal..but some times i have pain..after discussion with physician he told me that hernia is again developed ,which is common...when got ultra sound scan of lower abdomen last week radiologist found moderate hydronephrosis and parenchymal and dilation of left ureter throughout its course, with right kidney measuring 9.7 x 4.4 cm & left kidney measuring 7.9 x 4 cm .
Avatar n tn I had a tram flap procedure done in July 07, abdominal incision required debriment and closure surgery 2 months after, and large section of flap on breast did not take leaving large open breast wound for 6 months. Flap has failed and dropped to abdomin, very tender breast/abdomin and excessive scarring. Also recently diagnosed with postop abdominal hernia. Dr.'s state that such poor results are very rare. I am very nervous about seeking any repair surgery for such a complex correction.
Avatar n tn I have an appointment to see the doctor that performed the repair next week. When I google hernia failure there are hundreds of sites about a recalled patch. Questions...Would I have been notified of this recall or were these patches for other types of hernias? Will the doctor do an ultra sound to confirm or will he just press it and say yep, lets get it fixed? What do I need to do or ask the doctor to do so this does not happen again?
579258 tn?1250652943 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 ..
Avatar n tn i have a med. size hernia which seems to lay in the diaphram area and is extremely uncomfortable, can anything be done for me?
Avatar m tn (Dx'd when I was 18 with a hiatal hernia. 10 years later I had an EGD. No hernia.) Finally, breathing exercises and singing lessons will also help out: strengthen the diaphragm and the hernia won't slide up. No slide, no mechanical failure, no heartburn (in theory). Ta da! For the heartburn, first and foremost you'll need to do a GERD diet, plus make sure you're eating 6 small meals instead of 3 large ones.
Avatar m tn The episode created a hernia and deformed my belly button. As I have ESLD surgery to repair it is really the least of my problems. And any elective surgery are not recommended as the risks of infection, anesthesia and other complication are far worse than a harmless hernia. Unless there is severe pain caused by the intestines getting twisted or caught in the opening, surgery for cirrhotics is not recommended. Let us know what the ultrasound results are.
Avatar f tn Now, I got bothered with his yellow eyes due to liver failure and since it is a failure what I’m praying is that it wouldn’t progressed that fast and that he wouldn’t suffer that much too. We will check on with his doctors once we got back to the hospital because he has one for each – cardio, diabetes, lungs, and liver.
Avatar n tn Should this surgery be done now or after treatment completed ?
1524673 tn?1327845100 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.
Avatar n tn (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!!!!!
Avatar m tn My mother passed away on 09/02/09 from what was found as a hernia, where the small intestine was blocked causing lack of circulation. On 08/28/09 she began having stomach pains a nausea she thought she got sick off tuna she ate about 3 hours before she began feeling ill. she waited it out the whole weekend thinking she could fight off the stomach cramps which was accompanied by vomiting, but she couldnt. on the 31st, she went to an urgent care center.
Avatar n tn In October of 2007 my husband had emergency surgery due to a small bowell obstruction caused by the mesh from a previous surgery (colon cancer and hernia repair in 2000) adherding to his small intestine. Recently from his medical records I found that during that surgery his body temperature went down to 84 and he went into respiratory failure and this was why he was place in ICU and on the ventilator for 3 days.
Avatar n tn I received GERD surgery in 2000 for hiatal hernia and reflux. I got bloated, gassy, pains in left shoulder post-op. Was told this would go away. It never did. I continue to feel full when eating & try to eat small amts. Now I get up with pain in lower left mid area of ribs...tender to touch. The doctor did post-op endoscopy and x-rays..he said my hernia (which was large) is hanging into my stomach, creating a lump and I think pressure.
Avatar n tn On April 20, 2007, I did have an EGD with dilatation of an esphageal stricture. What do you think. A hernia? More Surgery? I am 165 pounds, 68 yrs. old,non-smoker,no alcohol, not diabetic, only meds are lopressor 50 mg twice a day, levothyroxine 12.5 mcg every day, nexium 40 mg every day, one 81mg aspirin a day. I was on lopid, crestor and requip for restless leg, but my PCP took me off them D/T Hemogobin and Hematocrit dropped from 14.5 and 45.3 to 12.7 and 34.7.
1926971 tn?1426300649 NO ANGINA PAIN/NO HEART ATTACK OR FAILURE but walking fast or slow beyond 200-500 yard cause very severe left groin pain. I was admitted to hospital on 3rd Oct 2011 after a doppler where angiogram showed in the diagram 99% RA Blockage and 70 % LA Blockage and was prepared for Operation when a huge cyst was removed from left hip. Operation of 4 graft bypass postponed for 6 weeks when I was readmitted on Nov 26 2011 and discharged after 5 hours when I told them that my blood group is B(NEGATIVE).
Avatar f tn Hi, Its very hard to say what exactly is the cause of the kidney failure. The infection if severe can cause renal failure. If there is dramatic fluid loss (persistent urine) followed by decrease in urine and obstruction of flow may actually have started paradoxically from the obstruction. There is a phenomenon of overflow or excess urine after a period of obstruction. How long the period of obstruction before this happens is hard to say.
Avatar f tn Myself, siblings, mother, and my son plus extended family have all been diagnosed with GERD and several have hiatal hernia as well. Our family also has a history of many deaths due to intestinal cancer. While we are all on medications for acid reflux, only my mother has fought this cancer - which she survived. Personally, I don't smoke, drink liquor, eat fried/greasy/acidic foods. I take 300mg of ranitidine 2x a day.
Avatar n tn I tend to get PVC's on days that I am extremely bloated. And yes I have a Hiatal Hernia, which I am having surgery on the 25th to fix. Stay away from Omeprazole, tends to really flare them up. Since long term use of it depletes your bodies ability to absorb magnesium (Wiki). And there are studies that from the FDA that indicate Omeprazole may cause heart attacks or strokes (google it)... I'll keep the heartburn thanks!
1708081 tn?1307923004 Hi, mesh hernia surgery sometimes could be a failure, best would be to check with the MRI report and if there is infection then must be started on a antibiotic course and the mesh would be replaced looking at the age of your grandfather it would take a pretty long time to settle, just wait for the MRI report and let me know the report I could tell you better, and mesh is opted in the hope that muscle heals it may take time ,if it’s causing problems then you must replace it. Wish you good health.
Avatar n tn He is scheduled for a hernia repair (inguinal) outpatient surgery and is very anxious about a blood clot after surgery as he has had friends who have died from blood clots. Is there data available regarding this post-operative complication that would decrease his anxiety? He has been told to stop his Coumadin 5 days prior to the surgery and restart it after surgery.
Avatar f tn He returned to hospital 2 weeks ago to have the reversal, but during surgery the consultant decided that it was not possible. A hernia was dealt with on the stomer and the bowel "tidied" up. He had a lot of post op pain and lost a lot of blood and had to have a transfusion. A tear was found on the stomer and this was stitched. He now has a temperature of 39 for the last two days, and seems very poorly. They have taken water and blood samples, but I am now pushing for a ct scan.
1374347 tn?1279166992 She will still need open-heart surgery and possible surgery to correct the hernia. Reilly is also on two ant-acids that seems to be helping. She's put on about two pounds since the last time we spoke. She's also going to be attending physical therapy bc she shows poor muscle stability and strenght...never crawled...doesnt even know how. They're still searching for more issues because they don't think its over.
Avatar n tn I might go for a laparoscopic fundoplication surgery, for I have got hiatal hernia and severe GERD. Does anyone know what risks are involved, and what can happen to me afterwards? Will I have difficulty swallowing? And other things I have read about? If you have done this surgery, please tell me about it. Thank you in advance.
