I had an interior hernia repair in mid July to repair both a hernia and hydrocele. Currently, I am still as swollen, as I was the 1st week of the surgery. I have been swollen now for over four months. I have started to get small sharp pains in my upper right leg (right side repair on the operation).
I went beck to the general surgeon who referred me to a proctologist. The proctologist said I still have some blood that has not been able to drain; therefore I have a hard sac of fluid in my upper groin. He sent me to get an ultrasound. The ultrasound confirmed there are two sacs present. The first being the hard sac of fluid in my upper groin, it almost like a hard half roll of pennies. There is a second collection of fluid around my right testical. Apparently when they cut the hydrocele, the testical began to produce fluid on its own accord (thatâs what they relied to me, as I have no clue at this point from fact or fiction). When I got the ultrasound they confirmed blood was still following to the testical, which relived me because I did not want to lose one of my most valued possessions. So now the proctologist told me to wait another month before seeing him again.
My question is why did this happen? How common is it to be swollen at this point? What is the medical term for my case? What percentage of hernia operations result in my symptoms? What methods should I look into for repair? What is my hydrocele not fully repaired? Is there any additional information I can use?
I had keyhole surgery (mesh) for an inguinal hernia 10 days ago and have a burning sensation which is painful to the touch just on my waistline on the sright hand side. Does anyone know if this is normal?
My fiance had hernia surgery almost 2 weeks ago. While most of the swelling has gone down, there is still a hard bump underneath the incision and he has started to get sharp pains in that area. And even worse he is still in a lot of pain and now the surgeon is saying that he shouldn't be in that much pain and will not refill any more scripts for Vicodin. He has been taking about 7-8 a day which he knows is bad for his liver but he's in pain. He had a CT scan to see why he was in so much pain and all they said was that he had a pulled muscle underneath the hernia. He is very upset that the doctor's are treating him like some uninsured drug addict. Trust me, he would love to be back to work instead of laying around. I have read all these posts about bad mesh's, etc and I am worried. The surgeon today told him to take Motrin and gave him some antibiotics which is weird because its not infected. Any help? The hernia was the largest the surgeon had seen, 8 x 5 hole and he used 2 mesh patches. Hernia's run in his family and he is very scared that something is wrong and/or he will always be in pain and not be able to work or do sports.
go see another surgon. I had the exact same thing and I then had back surgery and the gut problems just got worse. I saw three surgons before I found one that told me it is real and the other guys were wronge about it being in my head. Ignore them about the narcotics and find another doc. I am having the nerve cut in the morning and I will post how that has helpped. I was sent away as a drug seeker for over a year before I found a doc to fix the problem. I don't know if you have access and it may sound wronge but marijuana will help I am not a pot head but a guy told me it helpped and he was right just sip gatoraid after It will help.
I had arthroscopic inguinal hernia repair 13 months ago. Healing was quick but i've been back to my surgeon 3 times now with concerns of bulging above where he set the mesh. He says i'm fine and to do what i want - that nothing will happen. I do light weight lifting but find myself still apprehensive because of this bulge that comes and goes. It seems that after I lift anything over 40-50 pounds that it is more reactive to my pushing by sneezing, or just bearing down lightly. It seems too high to be an intestinal bulge through a true hernia. The doc says it could be fluid, scar tissue and to keep rockin. anyone experiencing this this far out after surgery?
...i have no pain. i think he should have applied mesh further up the inguinal canal maybe. My hernia was a tear in a strange place lower than normal hernias due to injury so ??
Is it possible to develop chronic bladder pain/spasms 8 weeks post op for left inguinal hernia re-repair? I have never gone back to my original surgeon, but saw a urologist instead. I am desperate. No drugs help. Naturopathic medicine has helped the pain, yet it still doesn't go away. Has anyone else experienced this?
