hernia after a hysterectomy

Hi lovelylady
I didn't have one, but I know they can be a problem post op if you aren't careful. Here is a link to a recent thread on the subject. There is some good information there. I hope you aren't suffering with one too.

hernia after a hysterectomy

I had an incisional hernia before surgery that had been repaired last April. The mesh they used to repair the hernia had adhered itself to my bladder and bowels. The DR had to separate it order to do my hyster. Now I have a buldge in my abdomin where my hernia was before. I think the mesh panel may have come undone. I will wait and see if it is just swelling from surgery or if I will need to have it redone. I go back to the DR in three weeks. You need to be very careful with the incision and lifting until you are fully recovered. I understand it is not unheard of for this to happen.

How does one know if they've developed a hernia? Is there always pain associated with the symptoms? I assume it happens from lifting something heavy too soon?

there certainly was pain associated with my hernia. the longer i walked, the longer i stood, the greater the pain. i certainly thought the surgery was really easy!
nothing at all like a hysterectomy!

life was nicer after my surgery

hernia after a hysterectomy

I have been wondering about this lately too. I have noticed that my belly button incision is looking a little redder on the left side. Not a huge red patch, which is what my Dr. told me to look for. I have also noticed though that downward from my BB incision my tummy is tender to touch and pressure. It sometimes hurts to put on pants or wear them for too long because with the wonderful swelly belly it pushes against my zipper. I was feeling around on my belly yesterday and I noticed a divet about half way between my two lap incisions. What could that be from? Would that be a start of a hernia? Should it be something to be concerned about?

Thanks, Nancy

hernia after a hysterectomy

my hernia was a definite sore place that i could pin-point. when i coughed, or sneezed, there would be a little bulge, so you could actually see it. there are different types of hernias. a doctor can tell by just feeling your belly (at least on my type). did you say if you have been to the doc about it yet?
