I am 22 years old before 8 month i operation the ignual hernia it is 3-4 years then i operate this it is effect on my penis size?
No: Operations for inguinal hernia repair have no effect on penis size unless there is a tragic complication. There is no reliable way to change your penis size for better or worse. The most common cause of perceived change in penis size is weight gain or loss. For each 10lb fat gain your penis can appear to be 1/2 inch shorter. For each 10lb loss you can gain an apparent 1/2 inch. ...Read more
If you are running a fever will they operate on you I am having a hernia repair and my fever is 99.7
Fevers : Fevers generally indicate an infective process somewhere in the body, many times in the upper airway. If elective surgery is performed in the face of an infection it may compromise healing and, if the fever is due to an upper respiratory tract infection, it can complicate the anesthesia which puts you at greater risk of a life threatening complication. A temperature of 99.7 is a low grade fever, and after evaluation by the general surgeon and anesthesiologist, it may be determined to allow the surgery to proceed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have inguinal hernia from past 5 years, how important is to operate or not to operate?
I don't have any problem in my day to day activities.
Not urgent : With a hernia, we worry about the possibility of a loop of bowel becoming stuck, causing an obstruction or gangrene. This is unpredictable but when it happens it requires an emergency operation. We therefore like to repair hernias electively, with an outpatient operation and lower risk of complications. ...Read more
Your risk tolerance: If you opt out of a recommended treatment, the rest of your life is at your discretion. The risk is if the hernia is "out" (bulge present), then area gets impacted/strained causing swelling or change that prevents return, is a risk it can become "strangulated" and pose a surgical emergency. Not a huge risk if use hockey gear/pads, but still possible. ...Read more
18 march 2014 my doctor operate hernia below the abdomen near groin. After my surgery within 5 week i found stretch in balls and bladder.Give me tips.
My mother has copd, she has a hernia right by her belly button and in the last three weeks its tripled in size. Is this dangerouswhy cant they operate?
I am about 350 pounds and have a small pariumblical hernia per the CT scan with nausea symptoms and tightness. Surgeon won't operate due to weight.
Maybe unrelated: Sounds like your symptoms are not related to the hernia. Your weight doesake the operation more risky, and if it will be unlikely to meet your goal of feeling better, it sounds appropriate to wait. If your goal was preventing the hernia from getting worse, it could be repaired. Your weight alone however is far more if a risk for premature death than your hernia ever will be. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
