Please see a vascular surgeon asap. If you get chest pain or shortness of breath, call an ambulance. ...Read more

I have an umbilical hernia and doc says I need an op. Is there anything I need to avoid so it does not get worse?

I have an umbilical hernia and doc says I need an op. Is there anything I need to avoid so it does not get worse?

Heavy weights: Hernias can get bigger if there is increased pressure in the belly. If you have a bad cough, do a lot of heavy lifting or are very overweight - those are things that can be changed to reduce pressure on the hernia. It probably should be repaired and you have time as long as you are not having pain or lots of nausea. Pain, nausea, vomiting all are signs of an emergency and should take you to The ER ...Read more

Have a lrg seroma after hernia surgery may need to be asperated will i be put to sleep or just numbed up and is it painfull to do ?

Not painful: Aspirating a seroma is generally done in an outpatient setting, usually not even requiring numbing medicine (since the pain of a needle stick for aspiration is the same as for the numbing medicine, but depends on how big the seroma and location). In any case, the seroma may require multiple aspirations until it eventually goes away. Without aspiration, this may take months to resolve. ...Read more
