Will I be nude during inguinal hernia surgery? Please provide details. Thank you!!!

Not completely. During inguinal hernia repair, you will have to be nude from your nipples to your knees. The surgeon needs to have full access to the whole area. Be assured, however, that you will not be made to walk in nude or exposed to any more people than is absolutely necessary. Doctors, nurses, and surgical technologists in the operating room see people partially naked all the time. They are discreet.

Ask your surgeon. I tell my patients not to do anything strenuous for 4-6 weeks. That may be a bit long with the use of meshes. Your surgeon is aware of what type of procedure he/she did and is the one to tell you what to expect. Read more...

I had an inguinal hernia surgery (open repair) in 2010.I want to know if nerves are trapped during hernia surgery how this problem can be resolved?

Ilioinguinal nerve. It is possible that a nerve in the area (ilioinguinal) is giving you trouble. Other nerves may be involved. Other options include hernia recurrence (sometimes can't feel on outside) or routine strain injuries to name a few. A surgeon can inject anesthetic at a certain area where the ilioinguinal nerve runs (near ASIS) to see if it is an issue. If it is, part of nerve may be removed to help. Read more...

Probably not. Although it seems reasonable and tempting to combine multiple surgical procedures in one session, it is usually difficult in practice. First, you would have to find a surgeon that would do both surgeries, or coordinate two teams. Second, many surgeons would not like to jeopardize a surgical repair with the complications of a cosmetic procedure. Finally, insurance coverage would be tricky. Read more...
