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.

Postop complications: I cannot answer for sure as it depends on what they actually did during surgery. Potentially the two can be related as either due to postop complication (intestinal injury) or sometimes hernias could be due to Meckel's diverticulum (a pouch coming off the small intestine) that sometimes leads to intussusception and bleeding. Colonoscopy might help determine if there is a large bowel cause. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of an inguinal hernia recurrence? Is there pain, bleeding, bruising, etc, or does the hernia just come back?
FeelsLikeThe1stTime: A recurrent inguinal hernia will manifest itself as a bulge in the groin, not unlike any inguinal hernia. It is usually a gradual process so there is no sign of trauma like bruising or bleeding. Surgical rx can be a little tricky the 2nd time around--as a general trend, if it was fixed one way the 1st time (open), we tend to recommend the alternate (laparoscopic) the 2nd time. ...Read more
