Yes: You will want to pace yourself and be aware of your body's sensations. Any discomfort, pulling, or tugging in your groin is a sign that you're not ready for that much activity.

Remember, that mesh your doctor placed needs to seal in place -- if it moves, it can cause a recurrence of your hernia. ...Read more

I had left ing hernia surgery 3 months ago and hematoma about the size of a golf ball is still present in my scrotum. Does this require more surgery?

Surgical excision is rarely needed unless the hematoma becomes infected or is associated with persistent, bothersome discomfort after an adequate period of observation which is uncommon. ...Read more

My wife has had a hiatal hernia. It now looks larger than a golf ball sticking out of her stomach. She's been short of breath, nauseated and bloated. What should I do?

If you see a hernia bulge on the outside it could be an umbilical or ingunai (groin) hernia, or hernia in a scar from past surgery. If you see a hernia bulge & it is hard & tender, then see a doctor asap. ...Read more

Consult a surgeon: Please see your primary care or your ob/gyn first but if the lump only appeared recently then it may not be related to your c-section. It could be an inguinal hernia or a femoral hernia and you will need a consultation and treatment by a surgeon. If indicated they may order a scan to rule out other issues or confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
