Inguinal Hernia Size
A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac. Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more
One side inguinal hernia the size of an apple, non-reduceable, what is best for me? Mesh no mesh, lapro, open, should rice, suggest other? Which anesthesia? Thanks
Depends: It depends on many factors including your weight, motivation for local anesthesia, and hernia details. Sounds like it will be difficult under local because it is not reducible.
