How To Strengthen The Abdominal Muscles After An Inguinal Hernia Operation
I had an inguinal hernia repair surgery last year, what exercises can I do to tone my obliques and abs?
1SizeDOESNOT Fit All: The goal of any operation is to get people back to their baseline activity (and most people can!).However, activity restrictions may vary quite a bit from patient-to-patient, depending on the size and type of hernia, the nature of the repair, and the patient's health. Abdominal exercises will stress the repair, but the ability of your body to tolerate this stress is best answered by your surgeon. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes.

Bulge in Groin: All inguinal hernias begin as small holes in the groin, usually evident as a subtle bulge that, in time, can enlarge and extend into the scrotal sac.

Inguinal hernia or muscle bulge? I am a 22 year old female, about january I have had a little hard bulge along my right external oblique what would be the "v" muscle... Its about the size of a thumb print. I decided just to ignore it because it didn't hur
A: A bulge in your abdominal wall that comes out when you cough or sit up and then goes back down when you lay down sounds very concerning for a hernia. You need to see a general surgeon and have them look at it and see what they think. The ultrasound is ok if you've already been scheduled, but it isn't always going to be accurate in diagnosing a hernia. Even if the u/s comes back saying that a hernia isn't seen, it doesn't mean you don't have one. Hernias are one of the most common conditions that a surgeon sees and most people still think that a physical exam done by a surgeon is the best way to diagnose whether or not you have a hernia. ...Read more

In an operation for appendicitis, is the incision made in the groin? Does it increase the chances of developing an inguinal hernia?
No risk: There is not a groin incision made for operation to take out the appendix. For an open technique an incision is made in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen, but well above the groin. For laparoscopic technique, there are usually three incisions, one at the belly button, one above the pubic bone, and one in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen, all of which are away from the groin. Hope this helps! ...Read more
