How long do you have to wear the support underwear after hernia surgery? And is it ok i take it off for a day?

How long do you have to wear the support underwear after hernia surgery?  And is it ok i take it off for a day?

Unique question: This is not a normal situation for those of us who work in american medicine. Most hernia surgeries are done laparoscopically and there is little to no post operative pain or problems. I would bet, however, that your surgeon gave you post op instructions that should answer your question. If they did not this is a question to direct to your surgeon. ...Read more

As there is always clinical variation, feel free to check with your surgeon as well, especially if you think something is wrong. Get well soon! ...Read more

What is the proceedure for checking an inginual hernia and can I continue to wear my panty girdle for support?

In most cases: Physical exam by a surgeon is all you need for accurate diagnosis of an inguinal hernia. In some cases, an ultrasound can provide more information. Panty girdle is probably not adequate support. Specially designed hernia truss is sometimes helpful, but surgery is best solution. Consult a surgeon for specific recommendation in your case. ...Read more

What is best support for my belly button hernia ?

What is best support for my belly button hernia
?

Surgical repair: This depends on your definition of "best". If the hernia is bothersome, limiting your activities, or enlarging, usually the best thing to do is repair it with an operation. Mesh repair is often used, and has slightly lower failure rates, with theoretically slightly increased risk of problems with the mesh. There are mesh products referred to as "ventral patches", and used by general surgeons. ...Read more

Can wearing abdominal support during exercising prevent recurrent abdominal hernia?

Can wearing abdominal support during exercising prevent recurrent abdominal hernia?

No: A hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall musculature (technically in the tough tissue overlying muscle). Some people are prone to developing hernias even after having repairs. However, it can help with comfort during exercise. Your best bet is to use proper lifting technique and develop strong core muscles. Don't give up exercise, it is good for your health in too many ways to list! ...Read more

What treatment for large abdominail  seroma  after hernia repair has already been draind twice   I use a support binder but its so tender and painful?

Need a Game Plan: Seromas are very common after hernia surgery; almost all resolve w/in a few months after surgery. Rx depends on its size, how long it has been present, symptoms, method of hernia repair, location of mesh etc. Ask your surgeon what his/her "game plan" is. If you are not satisfied w/the answer, you may want to get a 2nd opinion from another hernia surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more
