I have urinary retention after bladder sling surgery. Doctor tried to surgically fix it but still can not void. What can I do?
Releasing the sling is a simple procedure and should have worked.
It often results in leakage again but not always.
The only time I've seen this in a patient w/o a preexisting problem
that did not reapond to release was when the patient was very anxious. This will require further evaluation by a doc who has more experience with slings than it sounds like yours might
after releasing I'd stretch it. ...Read more
Had cauda equina, nerve pressed, did surgery but still got urinary retention, week before did MRI which was fine. Why I am suffering having normal blader?
Fluid: Fluid (called seroma) can build up in the empty space where the hernia had been. Also, the tissues around the surgical site can become temporarily swollen and firm. This fluid formation is common, is more noticeable after repair of larger hernias, and resolves over several days to a few weeks. ...Read more
Variable: The normal postop course depends on the type if hernia and technique of repair. All hernia repairs are typically associated with progressively diminishing pain at the incision site, and sometimes a variety of aches that may be associated with position during the operation. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Days to weeks...: Recovery from hernia surgery is dependent upon the type of hernia, type of repair, and health of the patient. A healthy adult recovering from a typical inguinal (groin) hernia would go home the same day of surgery, need 2-4 days of pain meds, and be back to a desk job within 1-2 weeks. Most people would expect to be fully recovered in 2-4 weeks. ...Read more
Hard to be sure: In regular healthy patients this would not be a problem. However, some people have medical conditions or prior obstetrical complications that would change the answer. The best source of that information would come from those who know your history and exam findings. ...Read more
Post Operation: First, the surgeon would have sent you home with instructions on how to care for yourself and the wound. Second, if you have no open sores or intolerable pain then you are most likely healing. And three, most surgeons have you follow up for a check in visit shortly after surgery to confirm you are healing well. ...Read more
Should not: Inguinal or groin hernia surgery should not affect fertility in a male. However, complex hernia or hernia repair that was extensive could involve the spermatic cord on rare occasion. Talk to your doctor and discuss you concerns. Bring your wife so that all parties discuss openly. There are many reasons for difficultly in getting pregnant. Avoid any blame and support each other. ...Read more
Depends: It's a complicated question, and has to do with the location, surgeon, and anesthesia components of the cost. In the us, this operation is covered by essentially all insurance companies. If you're outside the us looking at private clinics, don't always go for the cheapest price. Research quality if you can, but its tough to do. ...Read more
Insurance should cover the cost of surgery.
The total bill may a few thousand dollars, depending on how big the hernia is, how complex it is, if you have to stay in the hospital afterwards, and if it's done open (single larger incision) or laparoscopically (multiple tiny incisions and a video camera).
If you have to stay in the hospital, then the bill would be many thousands of dollars. ...Read more

Hernia surgery : Hernia surgeries are commonly performed as outpatient procedures. They may be performed in an open or laparoscopic fashion. Some details could determine whether it is inpatient such as complicating medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, or sleep apnea. Also, size and location of the hernia and age of the patient. The recovery times varies, but if outpatient, would expect 3 wks. ...Read more
Light: Eat light, non-greasy foods after any surgery until the effects of anesthesia wear off. 24-72 hours. If you are taking narcotics for pain you will want to continue this with increased fiber and fluids to avoid constipation. Once off of the pain mess you may resume your normal healthy diet. ...Read more
Yes: I can think of no reason why you could not drink flax seed tea. ...Read more
Not worse than GA: Epidural can be placed for post-op pain control if big sx, good if sensitive to opioids, or used as primary anesthetic during. Risks of placement: headache from puncture into spinal fluid 1-3%, or nerve damage-rare. Other risks similar to ga, lower bp, short of breath. If you have bad lung disease or difficult airway, may be preferable. For large cancer sx, may reduce bleeding, pain, recurrence. ...Read more
Depends how long.: This would depend on how long after the surgery you mean. Also, the type of hernia surgery. In the first few weeks after any hernia surgery, soreness is expected. Beyond a month, most of that should be diminishing quite a bit. If the trend after a few weeks is not one of improvement, your surgeon needs to know about it. ...Read more
2 main parts: Though individual variations occur, the usual objectives include appropriate reapproximation of the diaphragm defect and some form of gastropexy — usually complete fundoplasty or partial. If the defect is large or recurrent in nature, a mesh may be needed for repair. ...Read more
Diet changes: Hiatal hernia surgery usually includes a stomach wrap (fundoplication). After surgery I keep my patients on puréed foods to allow the stomach to heal. After two weeks transition to a normal balanced diet. Chew well! I start removing antacids around this time. With the wrap it is a trade off of too tight vs too loose. There is 5-10% chance of needing a second procedure to loosen or tighten it. ...Read more
