Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery nerve damage


Avatar n tn Oh my gosh, have I had complications! I had two hernia surgeries 11 months ago. The second surgery was nine days after the first, which was done to go back in and figure out what went wrong during the first one. I now have terrible chronic nerve damage with pain everyday...for almost a year. I have to take massive amounts of morphine everyday, am unable to work or support my family, hardly walk very much...and basically just try to lie motionless all day to controll pain.

Avatar f tn My husband has nerve damage from a hernia surgery in the groin. He's not in constant pain form it but when it acts up he has sharp pains, aching, and sensitivity in the sight of the surgery. The sensitivity is constant though. He's been seeing the same pain specialist for many years and a couple of years ago his doctor changed his pain medication to Roxicodone 30mg 160ct, and Methodone 10mg 450ct a month. these are medications that cancer patients use for chronic pain.

Avatar n tn I was like oh god here we go again but he had also told me that I might have nerve damage from the previous surgery. I explained that I felt ok since the surgery so how could it be nerve damage? He told me that nerve damage can come instantly or come months after having surgery. I didn't know what was going on all I knew was I was in alot of pain and wanted this fixed or whatever. So workers comp sent me back to the original surgeon that fixed me prior.

Avatar n tn At age 45, (white female ) five years ago, I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer with undetermined invasion into the myometrial wall because of the placement in the cornu, and received 25 of the recommended 28 radiation treatments because my bladdar was burnt very badly, (couldn't retain urine ) and the incision from the hysterectomy opened completely requiring hernia surgery. Oncologist explained that all of this was due to malnutrion, although I've always eaten well, even after surgery.

Avatar m tn had hernia surgery in march ,hurt more now than before surgery,what the hell is going on?
Avatar n tn Can Laproscopic Nissan Fundoplication Surgery cause Vagus nerve damage? I had Laproscopic Nissan Fundoplication Surgery 2 years ago. GERD completely returned 6 months ago. I am now experiencing Gastropresis. I had an Upper GI, had fasted 15 hours prior to the test, and still had food present at the time of study. I suffer greatly daily. I never feel like my stomach is empty even after hours of not eating. I can eat a small meal and feel full after a few bites.
Avatar n tn Acute denervation in the left ECR and paraspinal muscles is further evidence of mild ongoing involvement at or proximal to the left C5 root level. 2. Based on these results - is surgery necessary at this time to prevent permanent nerve damage and if surgery is indicated, is disc replacement the only option? I'm hoping to hold off for flexi-disc FDA approval after clinical trials wrap up. Can a surgeon clean up the hernia and bone spurs (noted on x-ray) w/out removing the disc?
Avatar n tn i went to thank you for replying and i ended up replying twice to the other person but i wanted to say thank you for your nice response appreciate it i do suffer bu ive had nerve damage pain on right side also from a surgery 30 years ago ive been thru hell and im still there cant get out!
Avatar f tn This time I woke up from surgery with a nasally voice after hiatal hernia surgery . I talk ad if I have a bad cleft lip. It has been 8 days. at first even water would come through my nose and still will if I drink fast. The nasally sound is bad. I can't blow through a straw. I ask my surgeon and the nurses they said they never saw this. I went to an ENT yesterday . He said he has seen this in tonsil surgery but not hiatal hernia surgery.
Avatar f tn I have not heard any relationships between short term blood glucose and short term heart rate. 2. Will vagus nerve damage cause heart rate changes? It can. Typically damage to the vagus nerve my decrease parasympathetic tone and allow increases in heart rate. 3. Can the stress on stomach nerves/muscles cause heart to work faster? After a meal, there is a period of increased metabolic demand in the stomach and intestines to digest food.
Avatar m tn I am female so am not sure if our pain is the same, mine is from nerve damage done from a hernia repair. They gave me a topamax it works as a pain management pill and it stops the nerves from snappsing (being so sensitive). They could also try a nerve block in the back which would elevate all meds and just block the source of the pain. So yes the topamax has its drawbacks as it works all over your body, and nerve block can pinpoint were they block.
Avatar m tn I had hernia surgery and my nerves were stitched up. What kind of damage/problem could this cause?
Avatar f tn There can be several causes of this pain like nerve entrapment in scar tissue, mesh or sutures, nerve damage at time of surgery, scar tissue itself or tissue damage, misplaced mesh, contracted mesh plugs,infection,persistent hernia, narrowing of the internal inguinal ring around the spermatic cord etc.Pain can also be due to causes not related to the hernia nor its repair like musculoskeletal,intrapelvic,intraabdominal,genitourinary,infectious etc.
Avatar n tn Usually if the spermatic cord is damaged during hernia surgery, the testicle will swell and then die because the supply of blood is cut off. Nerve damage is possible, but it could be much worse, at least he is able to have sex, often ED would be the result of nerve damage. I wish I could have been more helpful.
Avatar n tn My husband had nerve damage in his stomach area due to surgery. A nerve block has been recommended. I cannot find what type of medication is used, or if it comes with side affects. Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your question. These symptoms you are having can occur due to impingement, irritation or compression of nerve of thigh. Most frequently involved nerve is lateral cutaneous nerve of thigh (which is branch of femoral nerve). This condition is called meralgia paraesthetica which manifests itself as pain, tingling or burning sensation of outer thigh.
Avatar m tn Hey my name is Paul and I am an active 25 year old male. Almost 2 years ago I had surgery (mesh repair) for hernias on both sides of my lower abdomen (awsome). Since then the pain never really went away on the right side. It seems like was a little better than before surgery, but now feels like the pain is getting worse, and it really hurts... like an 8 at times. I had it checked out 3 times since the surgery and they said there was no "recurrent hernia".
Avatar f tn They also previously checked me for celiac disease and I don't have it. I have to have surgery for the very large para-esphogical hernia. The pathology report on my breast abnormality came back cancer free as well, so I have have much to be grateful for. However, I did not do as well in the recovery room after my minor surgery. I was in there for over three hours and they had to put me on oxygen and cover me with heated blankets. My hands were icy cold and I could not stay awake.
Avatar f tn I think there must be a connection with digestion and the vagus nerve but what is the cause, the stomach acid irritating the nerve or the nerve making the stomach produce more acid and the symptoms. Hmm interesting , I hope this has helped and maybe we can start to understand our bodies and hopefully get some answers somewhere. Im glad I found these postings it sure has helped knowing that Im not imagining this.
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 m tn Anyhow, after more than a month of trying to convince a variety of medical services that there was indeed a problem, he was finally referred to a hospital where they ran an ultrasound, found out it was indeed a hernia, and performed surgery (bear in mind that the only hospital his insurance would cover at the time was a crap-freaking-tastic place that (at least used to) have a reputation for its... less than spectacular performance.
Avatar n tn I checked out the risks of endoscopy and they include severe irregular heartbeat, damage to the vagus nerve, and a puncture 1 in 3000 requiring surgery. I have graves disease and anemia, and have had a history of heart palpitations, so i really dont want to chance anything that can give me worsening irregular heartbeat. Anyway, I have an apt a week from tomorrow for the endoscopy, but i dont know if I will do it.
