Inguinal hernia repair?

Hernia repair

Hernia_repair
Inguinal hernias are generally repaired open or laparoscopically, almost always with a mesh. Laparoscopic approach has less pain and shorter recovery, but there are fewer surgeons with experience in this technique compared to open.

Dr. Ivan C. Colon answered:

can inguinal hernia get larger?

YES

Open-uri20120910-639-coutya
A hernia is an organ (usually bowel) that is not on its usual anatomical location. The majority of the time, this is from a weakness in muscles that help it stay there. As muscles continue to weaken & there is continued pressure the hernia can get larger. Risks are: advanced age, obesity, heavy lifting, even chronic cough or straining to urinate since there is an increase intrabdomen pressure.

Rarely an inguinal hernia can become trapped or incarcerated, resulting in severe pain. The trapped hernia can contain intestine that can result in intestinal blockage and risk of injury to the trapped bowel requiring emergency surgery. This is generally a rare occurrence. See a doctor to examine the hernia.

Rectocele related to inguinal hernia?

No

Muscle_weakness
Inguinal hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall of the groin, and is unrelated to a rectocele, which is part of a spectrum of pelvic floor muscle weakness. You can have both entities present, but they ate not related. Hope this helps.
