After Laparo. For endo. My Dr said I have small inugu. Hernia. I want to get pregnant so I wonder if I should do surgery even though I don't feel pain?

Could go either way: There's a possibility that getting pregnant and the weight of a growing fetus on your inguinal area and already present inguinal hernia could potentially make the inguinal hernia worse, definitely requiring repair after a pregnancy. It may cause you some discomfort as your uterus grows if you don't get it fixed before you get pregnant. On the other hand, a pregnancy could challenge a new repair. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant after a hernia surgery or can I wait to have a baby that's when it can be repaired?

See below: Hernia surgery should not impair your ability to get pregnant. It would be preferable to have the hernia repaired before getting pregnant. If you are planning to get pregnant, consult an obstetrician and take ante-natal vitamins.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I'm 43 yrs old have had two hernia surgeries in the past and have another one on my left side of my abdomen can I get pregnant?

Yes: Whether or not you can get pregnant has nothing to do with the hernias. It is ok to get pregnant with previous hernia repairs. Unclear where the left sided hernia is. If it is in the groin, I would consider repair before getting pregnant. It is probably best to ask your hernia surgeon and have a check up to get a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more
