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

Unlikely: Mesh rarely, if ever, breaks. There was one hernia mesh product that is no longer used that did break. Hernia meshes now are quite stable. They can shrink and occasionallyove or migrate slightly. Mesh is always covered by a layer of the abdominal wall. ...Read more

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?

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

What are signs of a possible abdominal hernia?

A bulge and pain: An abnormal bulge, often with pain around it, are the most common signs of abdominal hernia. They most commonly occur at the belly button (umbilical), in the groin (inguinal), at previous surgical scars (incisional), and at the diaphragm (hiatal).They can all be fixed with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery for less pain and quick return to work. ...Read more

Can abdominal hernias in children rupture?

Words matter: Some call a hernia a rupture, signifying the move of an abdominal organ out of its normal location, moving thru a barrier.The belly button or midline abdominal hernia is usually benigh.The belly muscles tighten with age & gradually the hernia disappears.There is some risk of the muscles tightening & trapping the hernia out-but a warm bath can relax baby & release it, if not the surgeon must fix it. ...Read more

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?

Dr. David Earle
Board Certified, General Surgery
26 years in practice
7M people helped

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. Hope this helps! ...Read more
