Long term pain after hernia surgery
Actually, I had a similar problem back in 1995. It turn out that it was the scar tissue being tug on. A Specialist in pain ended up putting me on Celebrex. I soon found that taking 200 MGs first thing in the morning took away all my pain. I did this for about a year and a half and than only use about a fourth of my medication over the next year and rarely use it at all now. The only time I know I'll probably need it is if I'm going to do a lot of bending. Hope this helps.

Hernia Rpair
I had my 2nd hernia repair done in Nov. Since I have lost 15 pounds,have constant stomach area cramps,have almost passed out once,and lost most of my appatite. My home dr was told there was a nerve cut or damaged while operating. They didnt tellm just the doc. Any opinions?
