Had femoral hernia surgery a year ago recently was carrying my dauther and felt something pop and cause a lot of pain now there is another bulge.
Possible: The location of a femoral hernia is adjacent to the femoral vein and artery going down the leg. I suppose if excess scar tissue built up, it could compress on these structures, but in general, i expect scar tissue to fill empty space and mesh, not compress on adjacent structures. An ultrasound could evaluate the flow of blood in these vessels to determine if any flow has been compromised. ...Read more

Short answer - NO: A femoral hernia repair is done outside the peritoneal cavity, in which the bowel lies. Only in the most bizarre situation would blood in the stool or intestinal blockage be related to your hernia repair.

Groin Hernia: Hernias tend to develop in natural weak spots of the abdominal wall. The femoral space is where the blood vessels pierce thru the abdominal wall to supply the legs. If this space widens, the inner layer of the abdominal wall can stretch thru this an create a sac. Although rare, they occur much more frequently in women. These hernias are prone to complications--all should be repaired. ...Read more
A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac. Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more
