Why hiatal hernia sometimes goes undetected in endoscopy? What all would be the best(no escape) tests to detect a hiatal hernia?

Seroma?: Could be a fluid collection under the skin (seroma), but that usually develops within about 3 weeks post-op, and subsides in 3-6 months.

M28, could sneezing and coughing 50 days after surgery cause to recur hernia(note it was large inguinal hernia, repaired with mesh in open style)?

If it was high quality, hernia is unlikely, but adductor tendonitis is a possibility, as is inflammation of the other muscles that insert near the groin. Mri is a good test for this. A small hernia or tendonitis are not life threatening, so don't be scared. A trial rest and ice may be helpful. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
