How long does it take to recover from inguinal hernia surgery? I’m 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 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.See 2 more doctor answers
Variable: The timing of surgery depends on whether any pre operative evauation is necessary with other doctors, the urgency of the operation, & the surgeon's schedule. In the us, I believe that most surgeons can schedule a hernia operation within a few weeks after initial evaluation.See 2 more doctor answers
Up to 6 weeks: Depending on the type of repair, it can take between 1 and 6 weeks to recover. If you have a laparoscopic repair it can take between 1-2 weeks to recover, and if it is open, depending on the recommendations of your surgeon, it can take bewtween two and 6 weeks for full recovery
M28, had inguinal hernia surgery with prolene mesh, 45 days back. At that time my ESR was 2 and now it is 31, could this be from reaction to mesh.
Very unlikely: Prolene is polypropylene, very inert and non reactive. Elevated ESR to that level can be caused by any inflammatory condition. You should look to another source for this lab test abnormality.
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.
I had inguinal hernia surgery 2 days back. I can't poop properly. Just farting. What I can do? Each time I feel and ready to poop I can't cause of pain
Hydrate/stool soften: Make sure you stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of fluid - about 2L per day, especially while recovering from surgery. If you are taking narcotic pain medication, you should also take a stool softener which may help, such as colace (docusate sodium). And most of all, don't worry, the poop will come out soon. If the problem gets worse, call your surgeon. Hope this helps!

2 months after bilateral laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, my right testicle hangs higher than left, and spermatic cord is still sore, normal?
Yes: What you describe is not unusual. It is normal for one testis to hang a bit lower than its mate. You are likely the same as you were prior to surgery, but now you are focused and more aware of your anatomy. The cord tenderness will be resolving soon.See 1 more doctor answer
No: You need to contact the surgeon who did the surgery to find out why. Most pain should have subsided by 6 weeks post-op.See 1 more doctor answer
