How easy is  for hernia mesh to break or get missplaced ? Do abdominals heal as before surgery  and cover it?

There are many factors involved including the technique of hernia repair, patient factors, and the type of mesh used. It's a complex issue, and a bit too much for a brief answer, but i hope this helps. ...Read more

After i had my son in 2008, my upper abdominal area is hard and round. The lower area is soft . Do you think i may have an hernia?

Maybe: A long sausage appearing bulge in the middle between the belly button and breast bone seen only while doing a sit up is a thinning of the connector between the muscles, and not a hernia. A bulge that you can feel along this area or at the belly button is likely to be a hernia. See your doctor for an exam to find out. ...Read more

Could hernias float around in the abdominal area?

Could hernias float around in the abdominal area?

Not the hernia: Usually, the hernia itself is a defect in the abdominal wall. The wall is made of muscle and fascia, so the defect is just an opening in the sheet of muscle/fascia that is not normally there. Organs and items usually contained in the abdomen can 'poke out' through the abnormal opening ; can even get stuck. The hernia would not change positions, but the items poking out into the hernia could change. ...Read more

Has anyone ever had an abdominal hernia repaired using mesh?

Has anyone ever had an abdominal hernia repaired using mesh?

Very common: About 90% of groin hernias, and probably 75% of ventral abdominal her OAS are repaired using mesh. Mesh reduces the chance the hernia will come back, but is associated with some unique potential problems. Fortunately, these are uncommon for the group of patients that have mesh implanted, but an individual's experience cannot be predicted. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What are the causes of abdominal hernias in the groin area?

Genetics: A groin hernia is when the natural openings in the abdominal wall (through which pass the spermatic cord on men and the round ligament in women) stretch out, and allow other abdominal contents to herniate through. While it can be brought on by coughing, or other sudden increase in abdominal pressure, it is also due to happen more often in those susceptible based on their genetics.
