About the Inguinal Hernia Repair

Inguinal hernia is a condition that occurs when intestinal tissues or fatty tissues push through the weaker section of the abdominal wall, through the inguinal canals. The inguinal canals are situated both sides of the anterior abdominal wall, on either side of the midline. Located just above the inguinal ligaments, the inguinal canal is larger as well as more prominent among the men compared to women. It serves an important purpose, as it is associated in the conveyance of the spermatic chords in male as well as the uterine ligament (round) in the females. When a part of the abdominal wall gets weak, the tissues in the region protrude through the abdominal wall into the canal, causing extreme pain and discomfort. This can be felt as a lump in the lower abdominal area in most people, however, may also get unnoticed in candidates dealing with obesity. In such cases, inguinal hernia repair becomes the need of the hour, which can be achieved by surgical operations.

Inguinal hernia can be very painful and may interfere with daily activities to a great extent. Though medications like painkillers may help to cope up with the pain, the best treatment to cure hernia is through surgical procedures. Inguinal hernia repair can be done via surgical methods as the opening can not be sealed with medications and therapies, and needs to be thoroughly sealed. Thus, the candidate is suggested and requested to prepare for surgery. However, pre-surgery, through evaluation of the candidate is done in order to diagnose any kind of chronic or terminal disease which shall complicates the surgery further. Inguinal hernia repair is essential as if the protruding tissues are not retracted, it will keep forcing the opening in the abdominal and worsening the condition.

How is Inguinal Hernia Repair performed?

Before beginning with the surgical procedure, local anesthesia, or general anesthesia will be provided to the candidate which ensures that no pain is felt during the operation. In some cases, regional anesthesia to the spine may also be preferred. 

Henceforth, an incision measuring 6 cm to 8 cm is made in the affected region, the positioning of which is monitored via ultrasound done prior to operation.

With the help of necessary instruments, the protruding tissues are pushed back to its place out of the opening in the abdominal wall. 

The opening or the weakened portion of the abdominal wall is thereby sealed with the help of a mesh covering the area. 

Post-operation, the incision is sealed with stitches. 

In case of progressive hernia detected after extended damage, the surgeon may also need to remove the affected portions and stitch the ends of the healthy bowel together in order to maintain normal functioning. 

Recovery from Inguinal Hernia Repair

The recovery period required after an inguinal hernia repair varies according to the type of procedure performed. In case of laparoscopic surgery, the candidate shall be able to return to restricted activities within one or two weeks utmost. 

However, in case of open surgical procedure, the candidate shall be needing a recovery period of three weeks before returning to regular activities.
