Avatar n tn Hi, My doctor diagnosed my slight bulge over my belly button as a hernia. At the time, it never caused any discomfort. The doctor said surgery is an option but not necessary? Lately, its been very tender and sore! Should I have the surgery or not??
Avatar n tn I went to see a doctor and was told that my umbilical cord was not tied off properly when I was born and it is leaking urine through the belly button. She says I need surgery, but through antibiotic creams, the belly button healed. However, if I do not keep gauze in my belly button, it splits again. I call it my belly plug and as long as I use one, it no longer splits and it absorbs the discharge and odor.
2042217 tn?1336531452 Hello and welcome! Most of the plastic surgeons make an attempt that the belly button looks normal after surgery. With a good abdominoplasty there are chances that the belly button will be normal in appearance after surgery. After surgery you can go home once the effect of anesthesia wares off. You may leave the same day but if the hernia was large you may be asked to stay in hospital for aday.

1262699 tn?1277858559 I'm still eating soft foods as my bowels are still unsettled from the surgery. My recovery was slowed because my belly button wound got infected last week and I had to take antibiotics. I've no real appetite and I've lost over 5 kilos in the last 3 weeks which has not helped. I've started taking multivitamins and drinking protein drinks to put weight back on. Does anyone have any other useful tips for recovery? I'd love to hear them!
Avatar n tn I was originally down for a laporotomy but the surgeon decided to do it laporoscopically with due to my age (26) leaves fewer scars. I have 4 small incisions very small , 1 goes into my belly button. Recovery is slow for me though, i feel about 100 at the minute, the pain isn't the problem it just that you cant use your stomach muscles. You will feel very battered and bruised. Apparently i can return to work in 1 wk but i doubt that at the mo!

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.
1444487 tn?1284396449 I'm writing about my fiance. He had an inguinal hernia surgery (open), back in February. Here we are, 7 months later, and he's still in debilitating pain. He has a triangle of pain on the side he was operated on. It goes from his belly button to his left testicle, to his left hip. He normally was a truck driver, and did auto body work in his free time. He has literally been on the couch or in bed for 7 months.
478868 tn?1209035305 I had TAH/BSO for Mucinous Adenocarcinoma Stage 1A on April 2 - I am 7 weeks post op and when I was released by the visiting nursing group (my incision came open when they removed the staples - so the visiting nurses were coming to evaluate the wound and dressings) anyway the RN who released me checked me over pretty good and I was asked if I had noticed the golf ball size lump above my belly button.

Avatar n tn Hello sir, Sorry for my English, I have been diagnosed with "early hernia" at the left side of the triangle area below my belly button, it's not a "real hernia" (I think), I mean no organs went out yet, but looks like the area is so weak that the left side is a bit higher than right side (of the triangle), I'm a male, 27, used to do about 20-30 minutes of ab workouts 3 days/week for the last 4 or 5 months, maybe I did something wrong coz I can't remember I never tried to li
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 f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I've just been told I have a hernia. Just above my belly button. I had surgery 11months ago for a gut problem and was cut from just above the belly button down to bikini line. Before surgery I was swollen from whatever had caused the illness - not sure if was narrowing of gut join due to previous surgery (I had had previous surgery since I have had Crohns disease twice before - both times cut across the bikini line - wasn't a problem exercising).
Avatar n tn Has anyone ever had this happen, and if so, can you tell me the estimated recovery time and hospital stay. I will have to be cut. They can not go though my belly button because of the mesh. Any help would be Great! And again thanks to all that reply.
433485 tn?1321816990 I got it when my tummy had swollen up from some gastro problems, and when I got to coughing, my stomach muscles were stretched out and could not hold in the spasm, so that created the hernia. My belly button was painful for several days, and when I pushed on the swollen part, it hurt. Then general discomfort went on for, oh, two or three weeks. I now have a malformation there, eventually I'll have it fixed for appearance-sake only, because it doesn't bother me at all now.
Avatar m tn I am staying on the Elavil for the time being, as well. At his recommendation, I have now scheduled a second hernia surgery for mid-December. Besides, I 'm sick of this and really can't bear any more groin injections. That is just almost inhumane. Find where it hurts worst, then stick a 3" need in it. Right.
Avatar n tn Yes I did have a laparotomy...the incision is from my belly button down about 7 inches. As for the discharge it is hard for me to tell...I got my staples out last Friday, the 22nd...and they then put on the bandage tape and told me to take it off in two weeks in the shower. I am still wearing the "binder" thing around my waist and I can tell that there is a yellowish brown goo that is coming out...not sure if it is just build up from soap and water in the shower or what.
377493 tn?1356505749 We saw a Pediatric Urologist this morning and he requires surgery to repair 2 hernias for sure (1 in the groin and 1 under the belly button) and the Dr. suspects a 3rd hernia, also in the groin (on the other side). In addition, the foreskin on the penis is very very tight and they are more then likely going to have to circumcise him. Its currently causing him quite a bit of discomfort.
Avatar f tn Since the surgery all the pain that I had been having over the years is gone. The surgery was painfull for the first few days but the recovery went by quick. Now I still feel a little week but I am ok and for the first time pain free. It turns out my gallbladder was filled with stones and not working. How could the doctors mis diagnose me for that long. Over the years I must have taken a million antacids or thought I was having a heart attack a hundred times.
Avatar n tn Just wanted to update. Had the lap col done yesterday morning. Doc said everything went well, "everything went perfectly, only lost maybe a drop of blood" is what his exact words were. The incisions are tiny although there is quite a bit of swelling/bloating, there is no pain at the incision sites, all closed with steristrips.
Avatar m tn The only other health issue I've has since my heart operation is that about 6 months later I had a very simple and successful lower hernia operation on the right side about midway between my belly button and genitals. I've been on One Thyroxine 125mg for several years. I currently take SIMVASTATIN 40 mg daily A baby asprine daily 2 fish old tablets. And a multi vitamin for years.
Avatar n tn It seems to build throughout the day. Considering ER. I have 3 incisions. One in belly button, one four inches below belly button and one at crease of right belly. Having shooting severe pain down the middle of my pelvis. In so much pain and no meds are working. I don't know what to do. Is it too soon to say surgery didn't work?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
1424771 tn?1284612146 The anesthesia, the surgery itself, the recovery, whatever you can tell me will be much appreciated!
Avatar n tn My mid-belly is still big. I had 4 incisions (belly button and 3 lower ab) to remove a 12cm endometrioma. Actually, it was diagnosed as a complex hemorragic cyst, until the last ultrasound before my gynie appt where it was then identified as an endometrioma. I am also still awaiting the pathology reports, which by the length of time to hear I am assuming that all was normal.
784382 tn?1376934640 so on tuesday i will be going in for gallbladder surgery. i wasnt really nervous when i found out because im ready to feel better. but all the stories online about this surgery are HORROR stories. FREAKS ME OUT! making me so depressed.....im so young why is all this crap happening to me??....hopefully this gallbladder is connected to the dizziness i been feeling, that would be nice i been praying, but think i could use just a few more if at all possible. im sure i will be a wreck tomorrow.....
Avatar f tn Recovering from Laparoscopic surgery is much easier than laparotomy. You should be feeling a whole lot better in about 2 weeks and I'd say back to normal in about a month.
