790669 tn?1465192699 I started shaking at that point. I mean c'mon, hernia surgery into this, the unknown?? We definitely wasn't prepared for this. Anyways, so this mass he was talking sounded like the size of a cantaloupe. I was SO scared for her. After several more updates and 5 hrs later we got to talk to the dr. He said the "mass" was cause from the crohn's (thank god that it wasn't cancer) and the way he extended his hands apart it was at least 10 to 12 inches long.
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 I have read plenty of testimonies of those who suffered from scrotum/testicle pain after an inguinal hernia surgery. Many of you have described the symptoms that seemed so similar to mine, but seemingly you all wound up fine, or perhaps the same thing happened to you, but I'll never know, because the majority of testimonies are never followed up.
Avatar f tn They found this strange young doctor who placed me in hospital and set up a team with disease and control people, neurologists and he was a urologist that does mini surgery(?) After ten days in ICU including ice beds and and all sorts of stuff, my fever started to break. They had operated on my kidney and placed drains in them. As soon as i asked for a glass of chicken broth he said he knew I was saved and would live for no one who is dying asks for food.
Avatar f tn I had an EGD done. He said the hernia was large enough to do the operation. So three weeks post surgery, I'm on here looking for answers. The surgery took about an hour and a half. I hurt so bad coming to. A Gallbladder surgery was nothing compared to the NF. I had them frequently give me pain meds through my IV, which I think was Demerol. I don't think it worked very well, I was in a lot of pain, but I don't think they were giving me very much, if any, I just don't know.
Avatar f tn and the doctor told me that i should not fight after i have my surgery and quit for ever ( and i was starting to make big plans) but is this for real i known wrestlers and judokas or even weight lifters that had same surgeries and got back on the mat and trained again,,,, so whats up with that.... Then i ve heard in an mma forum that its good to ice your hernia before some weeks before the surgery cause it helps the recovery... is that fact true???
Avatar f tn I had complications rsulting in open surgery in May of 1997 (the wrap had slipped up into my chest and an accompanying paraesophegeal hernia resulted. I am currently having problems again ... but surgeons are unable to diagnose since symptoms and anatomy do not seem to correlate. The procedure solved my reflux. I needed it and would make the same choice again, but I am having problems yet unsolved as a result.
1423357 tn?1511089042 I'm trying to determine if it's high or low in the groin area. I've had inguinal hernia surgery performed twice and on both sides with mesh installed on my right. I'd say that the surgical sites are up high, but I don't want the mesh to be disturbed.
Avatar n tn After few consultation dr diagnosed and to tthe surgery.. he found a nodule and did hernia and hydrocele surgery. Its been 1 monh 1nd 1 week. i m recovering but the swelling of the right testes still there and i started feeling left side testicle discomfort while a little bit of walking and sitting. Is it due to the hardness of the right testicle? i could not normal as before.
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 f tn I am due to have major surgery for a giant paraesphogical hernia very shortly and am very worried over how I will do in the recovery room. That surgery will be over three hours and I will be under a lot longer and have a higher dose of anaesthetic. The nurse asked me if I had Reynards, but I didn't know what she was talking about. I later read the symptoms of it, but don't think I fit that category, although I have been known to have cold hands before.
Avatar f tn Hi Allison! ;) I'm really glad you posted this & it's good to see you. It's not so much that I have any concrete advice as I wanted to lend you my support (& commiseration!) I too, am facing an upcoming surgery for a double hernia I incurred at work. (Yaay, indeed! ;) I have some of the same concerns as you do & had the exact same thought process: 'Oh, but this is a 'legit' medical situation', etc.
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.
1140722 tn?1266356279 When performed by Dr. Elliot Goodman, an expert in gastric disorders and bariatric surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, NYC, GERD from a failed gastroesophageal (GE) valve can be reduced or stopped altogether. EsophyX is an incisionless procedure that recreates a functional GE valve. An endoscope is run down the esophagus where suction pulls a flap of tissue down in order to guard the esophageal opening from the harmful effects of stomach acid.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I had the surgery and the recovery was very long and hard. I was 19 at the time. I am 22 now and live in constant pain. After everything with my accident I had been on pain killers so long that I have at this point discontinued them. I feel that they are too easy to become dependant upon and that I cannot function as well mentally with the narcotic fog over me. That said I'm on flexoral and naproxin for inflammation and muscle relaxation.

Avatar n tn I just got mine done on 2/5 and I will say this the initial recovery form surgery was a lot better than the framinotomy, but I haven't seen any improvement. So that is a big fat dagger........... in the neck. I would say go for the Framinotomy first, the initial recovery will suck more, but you won't have a peice of steel in your neck, no matter how miraculous people say the prestige or whatever that thing is.
Avatar n tn I did have a little trouble right after my surgery - in the recovery room I woke up in EXCRUCIATING pain (I've had 2 c-sections so I had felt a little prepared), they removed my bandages (after all of the pain shots failed to help) and blood was literally SPURTING out of the incision!!! I don't know how I didn't pass out! I had to go back into surgery and all is well. I left the hospital after 3 days (I stayed 2 for the c-sections) and was pretty sore, but by the 5th day, felt a LOT better.
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.....
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
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 f tn I am really sorry to hear that you are in so much of pain after back surgery. Back surgery can result in a lot of pain which is often referred to as Failed back surgery syndrome. Technically speaking, if the pain persists even after 3 months of surgery, the surgery is considered to be a failure. It is pertinent that you undergo a CT scan to find out the exact cause of pain.
Avatar m tn They found a sliding hiatal hernia on my upper GI test. Their is hiatal hernia surgery that can be done laproscopicly which is less time in hospital and quicker recovery time. I was told by my doctor this week that when the stomach slides into the chest cavity, it irritates the vagus nerver which aggrevates the heart.
943760 tn?1318608030 On September 21st I went in for day surgery the first of three separate surgeries, the surgery for the 21st of September was a hernia repair a simple straight forward procedure. I have had a hernia repair before it was quick an easy and for me there was no pain I healed fast and that was that. That this operation is totally different I was wracked with pain. My 70 year old father had to come and help me just to get me out of bed I couldn’t understand what was going on.
18413069 tn?1466885565 I took my own ice packs and a cold therapy machine. The hospitals ice packs were not cold enough to do anything with wearing a binder after surgery. You can buy clay ice packs from Dollar General for only $4. I recommend having at least 4 to 6 so you can have two on at a time while the others are freezing and just keep rotating them out. You can find a cold therapy machine online if you want to buy one. Some hospitals have them, but good luck getting one. 2. I took my own small pillow.
Avatar n tn My dad strongly dislikes taking any medications. Will he have to continue taking medications after surgery? 4. How long will recovery take for surgery? Will he be limited in his activities. How about his quality of life during recovery from surgery? 5. Right now, my dad has to limit the amout of food he eats, and the type of foods, i.e. must stay away from acidic foods. After surgery, can he eat anything he wants, to his hearts content?
