For 4 days, I've been having pain on the left side of lower/mid abdomen, and feeling bloated and nausea. Pain started with coughing. Can be a hernia?

It's possible: Sounds like it might be a bit high for a hernia. If there's a lump under the skin however, it is more likely to be a hernia. In any case, best to get an exam by your primary care doc if it persists or gets worse in order to find out. Hope this helps!

Is a kinked intestine paiunful I have a bloated stomach 3 weeks after a hernia operation.

Common: Having a "bloated stomach" after abdominal surgery is very common. It may take a few more weeks to go back to normal. If there was a kink in the intestine preventing passage of intestinal contents, this would generally caused pain nausea and vomiting. Call your surgeon if you are really concerned for an exam.

Had incisional hernia repair2.5 days ago. My stomach is very bloated. I've had a hard time going to bathroom & I can't seem to keep my eyes open, ok?

Call your surgeon: This could all be related to the development of post-operative ileum (where the bowels slow down) and can be worsened with the use of narcotic pain medications. However, since you have several other medical problems, it would be safe for you to contact your surgeon's office to be seen. Meanwhile, drink fluids, walk as much as you can and if you vomit, have fever, or have wound drainage, go to er.

I had a Laparoscopic Inguinal hernia surgery three days ago and my whole abdominal area has been bloated since the repair. Is there anything I could do?

I had a Laparoscopic Inguinal hernia surgery three days ago and my whole abdominal area has been bloated since the repair. Is there anything I could do?

Be patient.: As long as you're not having nausea and vomiting, a bit of abdominal distention is normal. It will get better in a few days. Being up and walking as much as you can often helps.

My wife has had a hiatal hernia. It now looks larger than a golf ball sticking out of her stomach. She's been short of breath, nauseated and bloated. What should I do?

My wife has had a hiatal hernia. It now looks larger than a golf ball sticking out of her stomach. She's been short of breath, nauseated and bloated. What should I do?

Cannot see: A hiatal hernia on the outside of a person. A hiatal hernia is deep inside where the stomach goes into the chest. If you see a hernia bulge on the outside it could be an umbilical or ingunai (groin) hernia, or hernia in a scar from past surgery. If you see a hernia bulge & it is hard & tender, then see a doctor asap.

Just had umbilical hernia tuesday it's now 1 day later it very hard to stand straight my stomach feels tight and bloated is this normal had one very small bowl movement in morning?

Likely normal: Those symptoms are pretty normal after an umbilical hernia repair. If the symptoms don't get better or are concerning to you, definitely call your surgeon's office. He will see you and make sure nothing is going on. In the meantime, you can take pain medications, laxatives, and eat and drink as tolerated.

I had an hernia repair with mesh 4years ago I have been getting a burning pain in my groin and genitals plus a very bloated stomach any ideas thanks.

Failed hernia repair: I am going to presume that you had an inguinal hernia repair. It seems that maybe that mesh has loosened and some bowel is coming through. This is why you have the referred pain to your groin. If your skin over the area is normal colored, you should call your PCP ASAP for an appointment. If the skin is darker than usual or purplish, you should go to the ER.

Could a stomach hernia cause bleeding?

Could a stomach hernia cause bleeding?

Not usually: Hernias of the abdominal wall should be surgically repaired. Serious complication can occur - including the hernia growing larger and trapping bowel within it. When that happens the hernia is painful and dangerous. Bleeding is not common - it does occur if bowel is trapped. Please do see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Peter wilk, md.

Is it ok to golf with abdominal hernia?

Is it ok to golf with abdominal hernia?

Depends: If the hernia has been evaluated by a surgeon and you decided not to have it repaired, then it should be ok if it golfing does not cause you pain. If it was advised to have it repaired due to symptoms and size, then I would not recommend golf or any other heavy physical activity.

What could ease pain from stomach hernia?

What could ease pain from stomach hernia?

Hernia Repair: The best way to treat pain from a hernia is to repair the hernia. If this is not feasible at this time, general measures such as avoiding heavy lifting and wearing a truss/abdominal binder (depending on hernia location) may help. Unfortunately, hernias never heal on their own--surgery remains your best-bet. Good luck!
