How long does it take to recover from inguinal hernia surgery? Im having surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. What is the recovery like? How long before I can lift and carry things again?
There : There are several 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 more

I had an inguinal hernia surgery in 2010(open repair)if I have scar tissue around spermatic cord. Will I feel pain all the time or just when ejaculate?
You may: Pain after any hernia operation is common though it usually resolves in a few months. Scarring of the cord or cremaster muscles is probably causing this. Repeating surgery usually doesn't solve this. Steroid injection treatments may help. Applying heat or a hot bath may help. With time, this usually becomes less of an issue. If you feel a mass or bulge that comes and goes, see the surgeon. ...Read more

2 months after bilateral laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, my right testicle hangs higher than left, and spermatic cord is still sore, normal?
Possible. Unlikely: Sterility requires that both testes, or that both vas deferens (duct from teste that carries sperm) are no longer functional. Injury to the spermatic cord, which contains the vas deferens and blood supply to the teste, is a known complication of inguinal hernia surgery (up to 3%). If you had bilateral operation, or pre-existing problem with opposite teste, then it is possible but very unlikely. ...Read more

Conservative: Hi, Seromas after inguinal hernia repair are generally managed by just observation for about 3 months and they will gradually resolve.

It would be a good idea to let your surgeon look at it since it is just recent surgery, for your peace of mind. Best wishes. ...Read more
