I had Hernia surgery 2 weeks ago today and the left side of my scrotum and inner thigh is very painful to the touch. Hard to walk without severe pain?

Pain, especially the unexpected pain post operatively should be reported to the surgeon. This is how they monitor post op complications. Please call your surgeon today.

Any surgery is painful. The type of surgery and what the surgery is performed for will all influence the amount of pain. Laparoscopic hernia surgery can be less painfull than open hermia surgery

I have had Crohns surgery and hernia surgery. Now I have very painful gas. Any idea why this is happening and/or what I should do?

Depends

Crohns_disease
How long ago were your operations? What was the surgery for Crohns's? If the surgery was recent, then gas pains are common and can be related to pain medication and the healing process. If the surgery was a longer time ago, then see your doctor or Gastroenterologist for an examination. Postoperative scarring or recurrent Crohn's disease can be possible.

8 days after open inguinal hernia surgery the area beneath incision is hard and painful when touched or when I turn on my side at night. Normal?

Yes

Groin
The surgical area may be firm to touch and tender for some weeks, and slight bruise discoloration may be seen. Increasing local skin redness around the surgical site warrants an urgent visit with your surgeon.

Dr. George T Tsai answered:

I had ventral hernia surgery on Sept 7th. I get this contraction like feeling and stomach gets hard . It isn't painful but causes discomfort . Normal?

Most likey

Contraction
It's only been a few days since your surgery and most people will have discomfort for a week or two after ventral hernia repair. Binder support helps sometimes. When is your scheduled postoperative check? Your surgeon is your best resource at this point - call if you have concerns.

Dr. Gregg Nishi answered:

I recently had a Laparoscopic Left Inguinal Hernia surgery 8 days ago. The left testicle is super sensitive and painful when I walk or sit. What do I do? I will see the doctor again in 6 days.

Hernia

Pain
This can happen. Sometimes large or difficult hernia repairs result in swelling and pain that usually eventually resolves. There are also nerves (ilioinguinal and genitofemoral) that can get entrapped and cause groin or scrotal pain. I would see your surgeon now and not wait 6 days.

Dr. Jon C. Krook answered:

After umbilical hernia surgery, how long should I expect the pain to last?

Depends

Hiatal_hernia
Severe pain should be gone by 72 hours. By a week or two you should be able to do most activities with little pain. Discuss with your surgeon how long they would like you to limit how much you lift.
