There is blood in my semen. I got a hernia surgery done (without mesh) 10 days ago. Will it heal on its own, and will my semen become clear again?

Most likely: Blood in semen (hematospermia) is a common disorder. However, it is uncommon after hernia surgery. Most patients with hematospermia have self-limited symptoms (it gets better on its own). But, since you have a recent operation, you should see your surgeon for a complete evaluation. Read more

Hello.: Hello. I certainly hope that your bleeding has stopped. It has been some time since your surgery. Do they plan to get another ct scan to see if blood has resorbed or if there is still bleeding? Often surgeons work in treatment teams, where they can ask for input from colleages. If your surgeon isn't sure how he or she plans to proceed, ask if obtaining a second opinion would be helpful. Read more

What to do with 840 mililiters blood in abdomen after hernia surgery had hernia repair surgery on testicle was in bad pain 2 weeks later dr said blood floating around in abdomen

What to do with 840 mililiters blood in abdomen after hernia surgery had hernia repair surgery on testicle was in bad pain 2 weeks later dr said blood floating around in abdomen

Many: Many times the blood you are talking about is bodily fluids tinged with blood. Sometimes you don't even have to drain that fluid. I'm assuming they did because you have an exact measure of 840 milliliters... Either way many times a collection of bodily fluids or even frank blood as long as the bleeding stopped is left alone for your body to deal with. Read more

No history of blood clots but what is the likelihood of developing a PE after groin hernia surgery? Wasn't in bed too much and made an effort to move

No history of blood clots but what is the likelihood of developing a PE after groin hernia surgery? Wasn't in bed too much and made an effort to move

At 33, close to 0...: The odd to develop PE should be close to 0. But it is still advisable to push yourself to move around and return to "normal" life as fast as possible to fulfill: Do something within personal control and stop worrying about those beyond. An uneventful inguinal herniorrhaphy should usually heal well with a fading pain in 1-3 weeks; so, it is okay as long as less painful day by day. Read more

Last week I had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Last week I had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Hernia surgery: We occasionally will use a "skin glue" to put the skin layer back together. The muscle underneath is sewn. The incision can look a little red, as you mentioned, but if this is increasing or you have drainage or increasing tenderness, these may be signs of an impending infection. At one week after surgery, the incision will not look very good, and will look absolutely fine in several weeks. Read more

Having pain in groin area and around testicles after stretching out groin for martial arts. Went to E.R did MRI and urine test. No hernia visible but blood in urine. Diagnosed with kidney stones. Been 3 weeks still hurting in groin.

Having pain in groin area and around testicles after stretching out groin for martial arts. Went to E.R did MRI and urine test. No hernia visible but blood in urine. Diagnosed with kidney stones. Been 3 weeks still hurting in groin.

Not convinced: MRI of whatever doesn't usually see kidney stones unless large. If MRI was for muscles or hernia ok. CT for kidney stones. Also the CT would help evaluate the kidney for trauma. See a doctor sooner than later Read more

Been having testicular pain for 2 months now since I moved a table, had hernia repair 8 years ago, was at the urologist yesterday sent me to take septra ds now, I have no infection in urine culture, or no elevated white blood cells, should I take it?

Been having testicular pain for 2 months now since I moved a table, had hernia repair 8 years ago, was at the urologist yesterday sent me to take septra ds now, I have no infection in urine culture, or no elevated white blood cells, should I take it?

It sounds like: You and your Urologist did not come to the meeting of the minds of mutual understanding! I agree. From your report there doesn't seem to be an indication for the antibiotic but perhaps there is another facet of the case that you failed to understand or the doctor failed to communicate. Contact the doctor, ask for more explanation for antibiotic recommendation. If still unsure, seek 2nd opinion. Read more
