Usually on the Left: Congenital diaphragmatic hernias occur on the left 85% of the time and are posterior (bochdalek hernia), most the rest are located on the right posteriorly. About 2% occur anteriorly in the middle (morgagni hernia). Adults can get hiatal hernias on the left, because that is where the esophagus passes through the diaphragm to reach the stomach. Trauma and surgery can cause diaphragmatic hernias too. ...Read more
Appendix, colon cancer and abdominal hernia mesh implant scar tissue causing periodic bowel obstructions. Can anything be done about the scar tissue?
Yes: Imagine your intestines are like a rope in a bucket with glue poured over them. The glue would represent the scar tissue, and could be holding a single part of the intestine in a position that makes it prone to twist and intermittently obstruct. This can be released with an operation, best attempted laparoscopically (open causes comparatively more scar tissue). Can't remove scar tissue though. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lipoma: A Lipoma is a benign growth of fat cells. I do not understand the worry behind your numerous questions about this today. It is a benign growth, usually in the skin. That means it is not in any way associated with the uterus. If your lipoma is causing you pain you can easily have it removed surgically. But I do not see why you are so worried about this. Perhaps you should discuss with your OB. ...Read more
I have multiple, painful lipomas on my abdomen. It hurts even to lay down but not all the time. It hurts on and off during the day.
Lipomas that cause symptoms can be removed by a general surgeon. The method of removal is usually bedside but it depends on the size of the lipoma. Sometimes when the lipoma works its way into the muscle or connective tissue planes in your body, they need more invasive surgery rather than a simple bedside procedure. But it is still, generally a low risk surgery. Hope this helps ...Read more

What do you advise if I'm having a multiple lipoma in the body, I'm having a pain in the left abdomen what can I do?
Severe abdomen pain. Dx with bi-lateral hernia's, but then was told they are only "fatty lipoma hernia's" What are they? Are they serious?
That is a bit strang:
Hernias are common and by definition, it means that part of your abdominal viscera(contents like intestine) is slipping out, through the abdominal wall.
Fatty lipomas does not make much sense to me. If you have a hernia it will pop out when you try to cough. Lie down in bed and check it out.
I would advise you to seek a second opinion from a good surgeon before trusting the first one's diagnosis. ...Read more
