Hernia mesh problems, cord pain, doctors said too risky to modify mesh because risk of losing testicle, is this true?

Hernia mesh problems, cord pain, doctors said too risky to modify mesh because risk of losing testicle, is this true?

Surgical opinion: You really need to see a general surgeon for a second opinion on this one. The meshes were of course designed to stay and removing them can cause some problems - but usually not as much as not having them in the first place. While nerve pain and inflammation can be an issue, there is usually no major expected risk such as losing a testicle. Talk about all available options with that surgeon. ...Read more

Wouldn't having hips anatomically predisposed to rotate with respect to each other leave a runner susceptible to obturator nerve injury when running?

Wouldn't having hips anatomically predisposed to rotate with respect to each other leave a runner susceptible to obturator nerve injury when running?

No. But not really: Sure what you are asking. Obturator syndrome is extremely rare and a diagnosis that is questionable at best. Your hips position doesn't have much factor in that usually it is because of the anatomy of the tissue slings/muscle around the obturator nerve. ...Read more

Could lifting (eg babies and young children) affect an hiatus hernia?

Could lifting (eg babies and young children) affect an hiatus hernia?

Hiatal hernia: Many people with reflux have a hiatal hernia. Not all people with hiatal hernias have reflux. The symptoms of hiatal hernia may be subtle, or none at all.

But, so too would sneezing, coughing, or any straining. It is safe to do so no need to worry. ...Read more
