Mom is 13 days post op in FL hospital now with severe diarrhea from incarcerated incisional hernia repair by laparoscopic open surgery .vancomycin?

? C dif enterocoliti

Often prolonged peri-operative antibiotics adversely affect the bacterial content of the colon resulting in an overgrowth of a bug called Clostridium Difficile. This causes inflammation of the colon lining with resultant severe diarrhea. Stool culture/sample is needed to make/confirm the diagnosis. But if diagnostic tests are +, Vancomycin and/or Flagyl (metronidazole) are appropriate treatment

Male wit 29 yr old have incisional hernia 4m 5 yrs.Its not painful, except cosmetic ... I wear a abdomnial belt for same. Should i go for surgery?

Maybe

Cosmetics
What you need to do is see a surgeon for a consultation, and explicitly let the surgeon know what your goals of operation are. The surgeon should then let you know how realistic it will be to meet those goals with surgery.

I was diagnosed with an incisional hernia. It has been very painful so the dr decided to do a surgery today. Well theyinformed me there was no hernia and everything looked fine. My question is are they usually this easy to misdiagnose? Also what should I

Sometimes

Hiatal_hernia
An incisional hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall at the site of a previous surgical incision. They are usually straightforward to diagnose by physical exam in your surgeon's office, however in certain cases they are difficult to diagnose (obesity). A diagnostic laparoscopy is helpful in these cases. If a defect is visible, it is repaired. Occasionally, however no true defect is found.

I had Hernia surgery 2 weeks ago today and the left side of my scrotum and inner thigh is very painful to the touch. Hard to walk without severe pain?

Pain, especially the unexpected pain post operatively should be reported to the surgeon. This is how they monitor post op complications. Please call your surgeon today.

I have had Crohns surgery and hernia surgery. Now I have very painful gas. Any idea why this is happening and/or what I should do?

Depends

Crohns_disease
How long ago were your operations? What was the surgery for Crohns's? If the surgery was recent, then gas pains are common and can be related to pain medication and the healing process. If the surgery was a longer time ago, then see your doctor or Gastroenterologist for an examination. Postoperative scarring or recurrent Crohn's disease can be possible.
