Inguinal Hernia Recovery Period
Can a inguinal hernia cause your periods to come later & be lighter? (have a bulge below belly button, maybe hernia?, delayed, lighter&shorter periods)
No relation: The hernia is not directly related to periods. Also, a lump by the belly button may be a hernia, but an umbilical hernia, not inguinal. A lump could also be a fatty tumor (not cancer), or a cyst. Best to see a primary care provider for a more complete evaluation and exam. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

There: There are several different ways to repair an inguinal hernia. A traditional repair involves an incision over the area of the hernia and the placement of a plastic mesh material to plug or cover the defect. Alternatively, your surgeon may perform a laparoscopic hernia repair which involves making a few incisions near your navel and placing mesh in front of the hernia. Generally, the recovery from a laparoscopic hernia repair is shorter and involves less pain. One can usually return to regular activities within a few days to a week. Traditional hernia repairs usually require a longer recovery (3-5 weeks) but can be performed under local anesthetic meaning the patient does not have to have a full general anesthetic. This is beneficial for some patients who may not tolerate general anesthesia. You should speak with your surgeon about all your options as every patient has unique conditions which may influence how the surgeon may recommend proceeding. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
