Incisional Hernia Repair after TAH 5 Months How Long

Hi,

Just wondering if there is anybody out there who experienced one of these. I had surgery to repair the hernia with mesh two weeks ago and I am still experiencing pain and and swelling in my abdominal area. My instructions from the dr was not to lift anything heavier than a glass for at least 6 weeks, what then i wonder. I know we are all different and heal at different rates, anybody got any insight into how long it takes to heal.

Hugs to all and I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Incisional Hernia Repair after TAH 5 Months How Long

Hello. I had an umbilical hernia repair at the same time of my hyst. I don't think I could distinguish between the pain because there was just one long incision. However, I don't recall any particular pain from the hernia, like pain in that area specifically so you might want to call your doctor about this.

A couple of times, months after surgery, I did have some pain that felt just like the pain I used to have from the hernia and I got very scared thinking it was coming back but it got better. It was like a pulled muscle or something. I have also noticed that if I overeat, sometimes I feel pain in the hernia area so I have to be careful not to do that. I am so afraid it will come back.

My doctor stressed how important it was not to do anything to rupture the repair so be careful of anything that uses your stomach muscles.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Peppermintpeggy,

Thank for your reply. I am going to make an appointment to meet with my doctor. Definately I agree with you about food, I discovered that I can not eat refined foods (had a slice of piza and it nearly killed me) and just eat little, lightly and often getting in lots of fibre and take a stool softener just in case as I was told not to get constipated.

I havent returned to work yet since my hysterectomy maybe I am getting a bit of cabin fever. I have booked a holiday in May so I am looking forward to that.

Thank you again for your reply and I will keep the forum updated.

uh oh, looks lie that is what I may have going on. Had a pelvic ultrasound about 6 weeks ago. Went in today for another pelvic/abdominal. Not sure yet of the diagnosis, but the radiologist came in, looked at the screen, said "positive" and walked out. LOL

So the tech says, expect a call from your dr, who will have the results today. Give the dr a few days to get back to oyu, but they will definitely be getting in touch with you.
