I believe that I have a hiatal hernia due to the symptoms I have, what can I do to get rid of it? Also, can I do regular exercise i.E. Gym work.

Not likely: Your gastric symptoms should be treated by medications to reduce acid in the stomach. Only severe hiatal hernia symptoms need surgical repair. Most of them can be managed by lifestyle changes (weight loss, cessation of tobacco and alcohol, regular exercise etc). Gym should be fine. Hopefully you have had an upper endoscopy and xray studies to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

The surgery can lead to a markedly improve quality of life, if the right doctor is seen. ...Read more

If umbilical hernia not cause pain but if person want treatment of it without surgery so what he/she do?

Surgery or wait/see: Watchful waiting can be an option for small umbilical hernias, where it's very unlikely for bowel to enter & get stuck (incarcerated).

Is surgery the only treatment of inguinal hernia in a toddler? Is there any other option if it's not that bad?

Is surgery the only treatment of inguinal hernia in a toddler? Is there any other option if it's not that bad?

Not that bad???: It may not be hurting him now but would you really want to face the risk. This means there is a defect in the tissues that keep his intestines in place in the abdomen. If a loop of intestines slip out and get trapped, the blood supply can be cut off and lead to dead bowel. Emergency surgery in the middle of the night is never a good idea. Once identified this should be fixed within 2 weeks or less ...Read more

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Questionable treatment, unless indirect inguinal hernia shown first.: Testicular &/or scrotal pain can notoriously be difficult to manage and often does not respond to epididymectomy. Certainly removal of testicle should not have been performed unless testicle was very tender. Various regimes utilized by pain clinics should have been tried first & certainly should be tried now including possible acupuncture. There is also possibility of referred pain. Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. ...Read more
