Specializes in - Select Specialities -

PAIN after HERNIA: Surgery persists ~6-8% of patients most often related to scar tissue irritating nerves. It's common in younger pts ; in those with significant pain before surgery. Certain activities including ejaculation can cause/increase the discomfort. Treatment is usually conservative with pain management ; physical therapy. Surgery is limited to those with severe pain. Start with an exam by your surgeon.
