Had 2 large ventral hernias repaired laproscopically. Double mesh 8x10 used in repair..2 large seromas formed. Having considerable pain 5 wks. Post op?
Hernia repair: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is actually a very painful procedure. Additionally, seromas are also very common, but usually reabsorb and are gone by 6 to 12 months. Any remaining fluid collection is usually not symptomatic and can typically be left alone. Sounds like you're progressing along a fairly typical postoperative course, but if you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to call your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Rt hernia repair w/SUTURE ONLY in 2012. Recurred. Surgery tomorrow w/open mesh. Could have chosen LAP, but didn't. Mistake? Surgeon is specialist
Upcoming op for recurrent sport hernia. Prev. op was open suture without mesh. New surgeon will use open anterior w/mesh. Risk of testicular damage?
Caution: Not a simple problem. If you have had a previous open repair, and you're still having pain, I would strongly recommend a laparoscopic repair IF you need one. Only about 20% of inguinal repairs are done this way, so you'll have to find a surgeon w/ enough training/experience. Try the Americas Hernia Society website to find one near you.

Had groin hernia surgery with mesh in (07, 08) mesh had to be removed it failed(2010). Groin pain again & in leg. Feel a lump in groin. Is it a hernia?
M28, could sneezing and coughing 50 days after surgery cause to recur hernia(note it was large inguinal hernia, repaired with mesh in open style)?
Yes, it's possible: Anything that will raise the pressure in the abdomen can exert the same pressure on a hernia and cause it to recur, despite having just had a repair. While 50 days is right within the threshold of regaining maximal tissue strength, hernia repairs can fail at anytime. Even months or years later. Have your surgeon re-evaluate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
