I'm talking about a random pain that doubles you over. This happened at least 6 times yesterday. I'm thinking that I should make an appointment with my surgeon. Has anyone experienced this problem after their hernia surgery. I could understand this happening within a few weeks after surgery, but this really concerns me.
Hello momsplace99. I had hernia surgery just over 4 and a half years ago. Aside from some post operative aches, I had no pain. In fact within a week after being home, can say I was almost 100% pain free. Best get hold of your surgeon. Keeling over is a definite sign that something is amiss. Regards pledge
I had that same procedure, not doubled over, but sporadic, say a few times over the 4 months following. If it subsides and stays away for many days I would say it's the same experience I had, what concerns me is the intensity you describe. I would definitely play it safe and make the appt. Hope this helps.
Hello momsplace and welcome to DC and hope we can help you and alleviate your fears or concerns. I want to mention here that it is NOT uncommon at all to have complications years after the repair. It depends a great deal on the methodology. Mesh or no mesh... laparoscopic repair... tension repair and no mesh? But again, the risk for tears is high. Perhaps you overexerted yourself yesterday. Today is Friday... if you have concerns... call now. The weekend is a tough place to go into if you are fearing what is happening in there.
Most times those surgeries are avoided due to the many complications and surgeons who are not thoroughly knowledgeable of the many techniques for this repair. A lot of times... analgesics are given and that is that... no repair done at all... You must have had one heck of a hernia to have that procedure. What kind of procedure was it? Do you know the name of the technique used, in other words? That would be helpful. But by all means... please contact your own pcp if you cannot get to the surgeon.
I know someone who had the hernia surgery and they have had problems every since. They had it done a couple of yrs ago and they say everything feels the same as it did before the surgery, but now have more pain, like the stabbing pain you discribed. It might be a good idea to see your Dr or your surgeon for a follow up. Best to you ... pamee
