Lap surgery is always better than open surgery in experienced hands. Still benefits vary. You haven't written exact nature of hernia Viz. Inguinal, femoral, incisional or umbilical. And 4.5 mm is too small for a hernia. Kindly recheck the details. Regards.

Hiatus hernia has very good response with surgery and relief from symptoms is quick. Surgery can be done laparoscopically with small holes. But get her assessed first if she is fit to undergo surgery as you say she has othet assocated problems. Otherwise medication as is going and some lifestyle change is the only solutuon, eg head end up when lying down by 30 deg, not bending forward. Regds.

Hello, I am 25 and I had operation for Appendix 4 years back and now when I was swimming and my stomach was paining and I went to doctor. But they said it's Hernia. Because on my stitches place was swelling when I am doing some physical activities. Kindly let me know if there is some ayurvedic cure we can do about that.

Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your clinical history is concerned please discuss with your treating Doctor about antibiotics like[ceftriaxone-1gm]injection for stitch swelling and regarding a hernia, there is no cure in Ayurveda so discuss the surgical procedure with your treating Doctor and it is a simple minor operation. Do follow lifestyle modifications like this- 1)Maintain a healthy weight. Talk to your dietician about the best exercise and diet plan for you. 2)Emphasize high-fiber foods. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains contain fiber that can help prevent Constipation and straining. 3)Lift heavy objects carefully or avoid heavy lifting altogether. If you must lift something heavy, always bend from your knees, not your waist. 4)Stop smoking. Besides its role in many serious diseases, smoking often causes a Chronic cough that can lead to or aggravate an Inguinal hernia. 5)Avoid relying on a truss. Wearing a supportive garment designed to keep Hernias in place (Hernia truss) doesn't correct the underlying problem or help prevent complications. Your doctor might recommend a Hernia truss for a short time before surgery to help you feel more comfortable, but the truss isn't a replacement for surgery. Hope that helps

Please see a general surgeon. It could be due to various causes from musculoskeletal pain, hernia, appendicitis, epididymoorchitis or urinary calculus. They would examine you and if needed ask for an ultrasound. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Common Types Of Hernia That Can Affect Anyone!

Common Types Of Hernia That Can Affect Anyone!

When an organ residing in a cavity such as the abdomen tries to push through the muscular layer it resides, it is called as hernia. Though said to be genetic, hernias can be caused by things such as improper heavy lifting, incorrect posture, or chronic constipation and as a result of surgical complication or injury. Factors like obesity, pregnancy, smoking, chronic lung disease aggravate the severity of the hernia. It is believed that about 27% of all males and 3% of females can have a hernia during their lifetime.

Types of hernias:

  • Inguinal hernia: The groin is the most common area, where the abdomen pushes through a weak spot in the lower abdominal wall, causing a protrusion into the inguinal canal. More common in men than women.
  • Hiatal hernia: The abdomen has the diaphragm separating it from the thoracic cavity in the upper border. When it pushes through the diaphragm, a hernia is caused and there is almost always associated food reflux in these cases. Though the most common cause is associated old age, due to muscle weakness, there also are cases of congenital hiatal hernias.Incisional
  • Umbilical hernia: The abdomen finds a weak layer along its length and protrudes through the skin on the stomach. Most commonly seen in babies around the bellybutton, it gradually corrects itself on its own. Quiet rare in adults, seen during pregnancy and in chronic obese people.
  • Incisional: These are post-surgical, and happen when the organ protrudes through the weakened wall due to surgery. The abdomen is again the most common area and the hernia can happen either onto the external surface or internally, when they are called ventral hernias.

These are the most frequent types, though hernia affects other organs like the spine, brain, appendix, etc.

Treatment: This includes a combination of constant monitoring followed by a decision to do surgical treatment. Hiatal hernias and umbilical hernias can be monitored for a while before deciding on surgery. Inguinal hernias may require surgery earlier in the stage. Post-surgery, a mesh is placed to hold back the tissue in its corrected place. The umbilical hernia in children could be self-limiting. If it does not get auto-corrected in the first year of life, that also would qualify for a surgical treatment. Dependent on each patient, hernias need to be managed under medical supervision. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
