Femoral Hernia In Women
i am 43 yrs old woman who got operated for femoral hernia with a mesh. Will there be any side effects on the hernia repair due to cough?
Shouldn't be: The placement of the mesh will augment you existing connective tissue and scar forming at the operative site such that it should prevent hernia in the future even with a chronic cough, heavy lifting, and all noral activity. While problems with the mesh are possible, they are unlikely, and would typically manifest with chronic pain. Activity or cough should not increase the risk of mesh problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The most common hernias are inguinal (lower abdomen around the pubic bone) or umbilical (around the bellybutton). A femoral hernia is less common and occurs where the blood vessels enter the leg.

You should look for a surgeon who repairs hernias this way. ...Read more
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
