Indirect Inguinal Hernia Female
What is an indirect inguinal hernia? I have pain where the old hernia was and sometimes pain in my inner upper thigh.
Indirect is #1: Most inguinal hernias come through the hole that's there for your round ligament (vas deferens in men) and testicular vessels called the "inguinal ring". In men with indirect hernias, this ring is too big, and you fix the hernia by fixing it (and usually, adding mesh). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have heard about a relationship between hiatal hernia and gerd, but i also have indirect inguinal hernia and I have GERD for sure, can it be both?
Yes could have both: A hiatal hernia is when the stomach slides into the chest through the a hole in the diaphragm that the esophagus goes through. It always causes gerd. Your inguinal hernia is in the pelvis far from the stomach and is not related to your gerd symptoms. It should be repaired but dont expect it to cure the gerd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Primary repair: Young children will benefit from primary repair, which means high ligation and excision of the hernia sac.

Would not recommend any mesh repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Generally no: Rarely an inguinal hernia can become trapped or incarcerated, resulting in severe pain. The trapped hernia can contain intestine that can result in intestinal blockage and risk of injury to the trapped bowel requiring emergency surgery. This is generally a rare occurrence. See a doctor to examine the hernia. ...Read more
Yes.: A hernia is said to be incarcerated when a structure within the abdominal cavity gets "stuck" within the hernia. If this happens to be a loop of intestine, this can cause blockage and lead to the blood supply of the intestine being cut-off; we call this a strangulated hernia. If one has a large, tender lump in the groin that cannot be pushed back in, this requires emergency md attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
