Could chiropractic and unani medicines cure inguinal hernia?

Could chiropractic and unani medicines cure inguinal hernia?

Neither will cure: Umbilical hernias in babies ; very young children mostly resolve on their own. Otherwise surgery is required to cure a hernia. Hernias are due to protrusion of tissue through a defect in muscle or fascia. Indirect inguinal hernias are due to failure of peritoneal protrusion to close spontaneously after birth. Trusses may temporize. Neither manipulation or any medication can correct hernial defects.

In what percent (roughly) hydrocele (at adults) can cure by it self? Mine appeared after a classic direct inguinal hernia operation 2.5 months ago.

In what percent (roughly) hydrocele (at adults) can cure by it self? Mine appeared after a classic direct inguinal hernia operation 2.5 months ago.

Hydroceles: Congenital hydroceles that have been present since birth don't "heal"; require surgery; although small non symptomatic hydroceles can be safely watched. Postop hydrocele rx however depends on the cause. Normal post-op swelling/fluid around the testicle ; in the scrotum often absorbs over time. However a retained portion of a hernia sac that fills with fluid may require repeat surgery see your md.

Inguinal hernia repair 9 weeks ago, lichtenstein with mesh. I had an edema which is bigger now, maybe hydrocele? I will need surgery or is going to cure?

Inguinal hernia repair 9 weeks ago, lichtenstein with mesh. I had an edema which is bigger now, maybe hydrocele? I will need surgery or is going to cure?

Post-op issues: If it is edema/swelling from the surgery, that may go away with medication and time and monitoring the area. If it is a hydrocele, it may need surgery, as... Simple hydroceles in children often go away without surgery, however, in adults, hydroceles usually do not go away on their own. If surgery is needed, it is an easy procedure with very good outcomes.

Inguinal hernia repair 9 weeks ago, with mesh. Postop. Edema bigger now, maybe hydrocele? Little pain still. Why? I will need surgery or is going to cure?

Inguinal hernia repair 9 weeks ago, with mesh. Postop. Edema bigger now, maybe hydrocele? Little pain still. Why? I will need surgery or is going to cure?

Probably wait out...: Local surgical dissection and postoperative tissue reaction for healing may interfere venous and lymphatic drainage, leading to swelling in inguinal and scrotal region. Such takes time to resolve with unpredicable various pace, but is worthwhile to wait and see as long as slow and surely getting better day by day, because nothing can be done except infection. More? Ask surgeon timely.

Is surgery the only treatment of inguinal hernia in a toddler? Is there any other option if it's not that bad?

Is surgery the only treatment of inguinal hernia in a toddler? Is there any other option if it's not that bad?

Not that bad???: It may not be hurting him now but would you really want to face the risk. This means there is a defect in the tissues that keep his intestines in place in the abdomen. If a loop of intestines slip out and get trapped, the blood supply can be cut off and lead to dead bowel. Emergency surgery in the middle of the night is never a good idea. Once identified this should be fixed within 2 weeks or less

What is the best treatment for an inguinal hernia?

Hernia Surgery: Repair with permanent mesh has become the gold standard for inguinal hernia repair in adult males. Debate continues whether the traditional or laparoscopic approach is best: the bottom line is which technique your surgeon performs with the lowest complication & recurrence rates. I favor the laparoscopic approach because, in my hands, the recovery is shorter; this is most evident for double hernias.

Is there a holistic treatment for an inguinal hernia?

No: Once you have developed a hernia which is a defect in the abdominal wall it will be there till it is repaired. Some patients get relief from the use of trusses for wide based-direct type inguinal hernias (esp in the elderly).Some also get support from abdominal binders for wide-mouthed hernias

Anyone know what is a holistic treatment for an inguinal hernia?

Anyone know what is a holistic treatment for an inguinal hernia?

None: A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall, and the only way to make that go away is with a surgical procedure. There may be other non-surgical methods for treating the symptoms, such as support garments, or a variety of medications and/or herbs, acupuncture, etc. Tese other methods will not "cure" the hernia however. Hope this helps!

Hernia: No. Inguinal hernias are not benign. Of course most do not create problems. You should go get it repaired. It is a very easy procedure.

I m 23 yrs old. I am suffering from inguinal hernia since a long time and it does not pains. Is it necessary to take treatment for it.

Depends on risks: Are you a weight lifter; will the post-operative recovery and associated lifting restrictions be overly burdensome to you; how reducible and sizable is the hernia presently?
