Seek urgent medical: Any abscess can lead to serious complications due to spreading infection. Bleeding, if more than minimal also requires urgent evaluation and treatment.

I had ascites leaking into my inguinal hernia and had a mesh repair on the left side. Now, I have got right sided hernia. I was told that the fluid would leak. Is another surgery an option?

I had ascites leaking into my inguinal hernia and had a mesh repair on the left side. Now, I have got right sided hernia. I was told that the fluid would leak. Is another surgery an option?

Good luck! ...Read more
