Dr. David Earle answered:

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

Shouldn't

Hernia_repair
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.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

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

Clinical

Hernia_repair
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. Imaging study (e.g. MRI, US) is rarely needed. symptoms may occur soon after surgery, or months to years later. neurectomy has a 90% cure rate.

I am feeling pain in surgical side of inguinal hernia repair. I want know will nerve entrapment/ irritation and infection show on an MRI scan?

Clinical exam

Open-uri20130416-14171-k82d6e
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.

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

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Can inguinal hernia repair nerve damage?

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.

Inguinal hernia repair?

Hernia repair

Hernia_repair
Inguinal hernias are generally repaired open or laparoscopically, almost always with a mesh. Laparoscopic approach has less pain and shorter recovery, but there are fewer surgeons with experience in this technique compared to open.

Groin hernia

Dr. Ivan C. Colon answered:

can inguinal hernia get larger?

YES

Open-uri20120910-639-coutya
A hernia is an organ (usually bowel) that is not on its usual anatomical location. The majority of the time, this is from a weakness in muscles that help it stay there. As muscles continue to weaken & there is continued pressure the hernia can get larger. Risks are: advanced age, obesity, heavy lifting, even chronic cough or straining to urinate since there is an increase intrabdomen pressure.
