What is a Hernia?

A hernia is when an internal organ or tissue protrudes abnormally through a defect or weakness in the containing muscular wall.The most frequent type of hernia is an inguinal hernia. It develops when the intraabdominal fat or intestine pushes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall in the groin region (region of the inguinal canal).

What Kinds Of Hernias Exist?

The following are the typical hernias:

  • Inguinal hernia:
  • The inner groin area is painful when the intestine pushes through one of the two inguinal canals in the lower abdominal wall.

  • Ventral hernia:
  • This condition happens as a result of a weakness in the anterior abdominal wall. Epigastric hernia, Umbilical hernia, Incisional hernia, Paraumbilical hernia are all subtypes of ventral hernias.

    What Hernia Symptoms Are There?

    Most hernias commonly manifest as a bulge or protrusion accompanied by discomfort or pain. The bump or bulge might not always be visible; for instance, it might go away when the patient lies down. As the sufferer stands, strains, or tries to lift large objects, their symptoms get worse. Most often via a physical examination, but occasionally using imaging methods, doctors can detect a hernia.
    Contrarily, a hiatal hernia does not result in a bulge; instead, it causes symptoms that can be managed with medicine, such as heartburn, acid reflux, and regurgitation of food or drinks.
    If any of the following symptoms are present, immediate surgery is necessary.

  • A larger-than-normal bulge Usually, but abruptly, a bulge that appears inside the abdomen does not disappear.
  • Fever.
  • Redness in the hernia-affected region
    a hernia’s region feeling tender.
  • Bloating.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Discomfort in the abdomen.
How Is a Hernia Procedure Performed?

Hernia is technically a mechanical defect which requires a mechanical closure (surgery). The closure of the defect is often reinforced with a mesh to reduce the chances of recurrence of hernia. Hiatus hernia is an exception. Many patients of hiatus hernia experience relief of symptoms with diet lifestyle changes and few medicines. Mere presence of hiatus hernia is not an indication for surgery.

Laparoscopic hernia surgery: The doctor inserts specialized equipment and a specialized camera to view the problem area through a series of tiny cuts (often three) made in the lower belly. There are fewer risks and scars with this surgery. In more complex circumstances, it might not be possible to prescribe this course of action. A piece of mesh is typically used by the surgeon to reinforce and seal the abdominal wall. Although mesh is frequently used and has been shown to help minimize hernia recurrence, it also has disadvantages, including prolonged pain in some situations.

What precautions should I take after Hernia surgery?

Apart from routine precautions post any surgery like avoiding prolonged bed rest, having healthy protein rich nutritious meals, hernia surgery patients need to take special care of hernia site. Any activity that can lead to undue strain on hernia site should be avoided for few weeks. This includes lifting heavy weights, exercises like leg raise which cause strain on anterior abdominal wall muscles, etc. Walking, swimming, deep breathing exercises are acceptable.
