What are symptoms of nerve entrapment/injury after inguinal hernia surgery. And if exist how to detect that one is nerve entrapment?

Clinical : Sharp/burning/lancinating pain traveling from the incision to the pubic area, scrotum, or thigh, tingling sensation in these area, pain with stretching, coughing/sneezing, pain relief w/ local anesthetic injection are usually diagnostic.

See professionals...: The condition your described, if severe, it may lead to erectile dysfunction because of mental distraction. How to handle this? Diagnostic nerve block followed with surgical excision of "neuroma" and regional neurectomy can be very helpful, but you have to locate a competent, trustworthy urological surgeon to help you. On the other hand, if the pain slowly and surely getting better, give time. ...Read more

Clinical exam: You had an open hernia repair and are concerned for nerve entrapment. You want to know if MRI will help in diagnosis. Most surgeons will examnine you and take a history. They may refer you to a pain specialist to block the area and get rid of the pain. It can usually be controlled this way but does have a risk of causing over sensitivity. In this region. Follow with your surgeon. ...Read more

Can the pudendal nerve become entrapped or damaged during inguinal hernia repair?

Shouldn't : It is inconceivable this nerve could be damaged during either open or laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair, however in medicine you can "never say never". Variations in anatomy and techniques can result in rare issues. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Yes, right inguinal hernia done open in 2010 had burning numbness since operation and now feeling nerve and cord being pulled?

See a doctor: numbness after hernia surgery is kind of normal the burning part not as much. the pulling sensation could be considered normal right after surgery but not after four years my advise go and see a doctor either follow with the surgeon that did your surgery or see your family physician meanwhile take ibuprofen 600 mg three times a day with meals for a week and apply heat pad to the area good luck ...Read more

Can inguinal hernia repair nerve damage?

Dr. Barry Rosen
Board Certified, General Surgery

24M people helped

Yes: Nerve injuries are rare complications of open & laparoscopic hernia repair. In open surgery, the nerve that innervates the skin of the groin & thigh is prone to injury, leading to numbness or pain. In laparoscopic repair, a tack holding the mesh can irritate branches of the same nerve, or, more rarely, catch a nerve to the leg. Chronic pain responds to injecting the nerve, if necessary. ...Read more

Ilioinguinal nerve: It is possible that a nerve in the area (ilioinguinal) is giving you trouble. Other nerves may be involved. Other options include hernia recurrence (sometimes can't feel on outside) or routine strain injuries to name a few. A surgeon can inject anesthetic at a certain area where the ilioinguinal nerve runs (near ASIS) to see if it is an issue. If it is, part of nerve may be removed to help. ...Read more
