About Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal hernia is the most common type of hernia that occurs when tissues or intestines protrude through a weak point in the muscle wall around the inguinal canal or groin. Around 70% of cases of hernia are associated with inguinal hernia and it mostly arises in males. In the beginning, an inguinal hernia may not cause pain but a bulge will appear that may hurt occasionally when you cough, lift heavy objects or bend over.

Though inguinal hernia is not dangerous, it doesn’t improve on its own. But in some situations, it can cause complications that can be life-threatening. Considering this, repairing an inguinal hernia is very important. You can contact Pristyn Care and talk to the best hernia doctors in Dehradun. They will diagnose your condition and suggest a plausible treatment method accordingly.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis 

    If an individual has pain in the groin region, he/she usually goes to a primary care provider (PCP) first. The PCP may physically examine the patient and suggest that they visit a general surgeon or gastroenterologist for further evaluation. 

    To properly diagnose a hernia, the doctor will perform a thorough physical exam. He/she will check the bulge in the groin area and ask you to cough while standing. This will make the hernia more prominent and easier to detect. 

    If the physical examination doesn’t reveal conclusive evidence, the doctor may recommend imaging tests, such as abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI. 

    Procedure 

    If the inguinal hernia is not bothering and doesn’t have severe symptoms, the doctor may recommend watchful waiting. Sometimes, a supportive truss is suggested to alleviate the symptoms. 

    For large and painful inguinal hernia, the doctor will recommend surgical treatment. Generally, the patient can undergo open hernia repair surgery or minimally invasive hernia repair surgery. At Pristyn Care, we provide advanced treatment and hence use minimally invasive techniques to repair hernia. 

    The technique is known as laparoscopic hernia repair surgery and the steps involved in the procedure are explained below- 

    • The doctor gives general anesthesia to the patients to numb the body and to make sure that the patient doesn’t feel any kind of pain or discomfort. 
    • Once the anesthesia takes effect, the surgeon will insert the laparoscopic instruments to repair the hernia. A special gas is used to inflate the abdomen and make ample space inside to perform the surgery. 
    • Multiple incisions (usually 2 or 3 incisions) are made around the abdomen to insert the surgical instruments. 
    • The herniated part is pushed back in the original position and if needed, a hernia mesh is placed to support the muscles and keep the organ in its place. 
    • After hernia repair, the gas is deflated and the incisions are closed with stitches if required. 
    • The patient is kept under observation for 2-3 hours until the anesthesia wears off and then transferred to the room. 

    As hernia surgery is a major procedure, a minimum of 24 hours of hospitalization is necessary. Once the doctor ensures that the surgery was successful and the patient is well, he/she will be discharged.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does Pristyn Care have its own hospitals and clinics for hernia treatment in Dehradun?

    Pristyn Care has its own clinics across Dehradun where patients who are seeking hernia treatment can visit and consult with experts. However, we do not have our own hospitals. Instead, we are partnered with top hospitals in Dehradun and utilize their infrastructure, medical equipment, diagnostic tools, and other amenities to provide optimal healthcare services to the patients.

    When are the follow-ups required after inguinal hernia repair surgery?

    Whether you’ve had open surgery or laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair surgery, you need to take several follow-ups after the treatment. If the incision is closed with stitches, the doctor may remove them after 10-15 days. This may be the first follow-up appointment with the surgeon where he/she will also monitor the wound and overall healing process. After that, another follow-up may be required after 3 weeks to adjust the prescribed medications according to the patient’s health. If another follow-up is required, the doctor will ask you to visit again.

    What is the difference between femoral and inguinal hernia?

    Inguinal hernia and femoral hernia can arise in both males and females. And in some cases, it is quite difficult to distinguish between them as they occur around the same region. 

    The key difference between femoral and inguinal hernia is the part from where the intestine bulges out. In the case of an inguinal hernia, the intestine enters the abdominal cavity through an opening in the inguinal canal. It is the passage that allows the spermatic cord and the testicle to descend. Normally, the inguinal canal closes after birth but in some cases, weak spots in the muscle wall are created that causes problems later in life. Inguinal hernias mostly occur in men due to this reason. 

    Femoral hernias are also found in the groin region but they arise due to different reasons. The femoral artery and vein pass through the femoral canal, which is an opening between the abdominal floor and the upper leg (thighs). If there is a weak spot in the femoral canal, the intestine may bulge out and cause problems. Femoral hernias are more common in women as they have a different bone structure around the pelvis region. 

    Both types of hernias have similar symptoms and have the potential to cause serious complications. Therefore, if you notice a bulge anywhere in your body, it is crucial that you get it checked and seek proper treatment. 

    Is inguinal hernia treatment possible without surgery? 

    A hernia is a condition that doesn’t go away on its own, and neither can be repaired without intervention. 

    In the best-case scenario, hernia treatment can be delayed if the bulge is not large and there are no other symptoms present. At this stage, the doctor will recommend that the patient manages the occasional pain with the help of a hernia belt or truss that will prevent the organ from entering the abdominal cavity. 

    This way, the patient can reduce the symptoms and also stop/delay the progression of the hernia. Ultimately, to ensure that inguinal hernia doesn’t lead to life-threatening complications, surgical repair will be required.

    Open/Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair Recovery Tips 

    Whether the surgeon uses the open or laparoscopic technique to treat an inguinal hernia, the recovery starts right after surgery when you are sent back to your room after the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, you might feel a little bit tired and dizzy due to the after-effects of anesthesia. The effects will go away after some time and you will feel better. 

    Usually, you will be discharged on the same day and once you reach home, follow the tips below for a quick and smooth recovery-

    • Do not push your body to its limits. Take proper rest in the first few days and avoid moving unnecessarily. 
    • In the first few days, you might not have a proper bowel movement. Make sure that you eat properly and have a bowel movement as soon as possible. 
    • Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water is essential to avoid constipation and promote faster recovery. 
    • Let pain be your guide to move around and resume basic activities like walking, climbing stairs, etc. 
    • The doctor will instruct how to change the bandages. Do it as directed. 
    • Keep the wound dry and clean to prevent infection and other post-surgery complications. 
    • Avoid taking showers or sitting in hot tubs or swimming pools. Keep water away from the incisions until the doctor gives you permission. 
    • Do not drive until the doctor approves and takes the prescribed medications as directed. 
    • Avoid lifting heavyweights, including babies, as it can put pressure on the abdomen. 
    • Do not exercise at all until the wound heals completely. Abstain from sexual activities too. 

    Visit the doctor if you have a high fever, persistent pain, swelling around the wound, or if you haven’t had bowel movements for 3 days. 

    How to prevent inguinal hernia?

    It is important to understand that congenital inguinal hernia cannot be prevented. But if there are no congenital defects in the body, it is possible to reduce the chances of developing an inguinal hernia. Follow the tips below- 

    • Maintain a healthy weight by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. The diet will improve the overall health, and exercise will strengthen the abdominal muscles to minimize the chances of protrusion due to weakness. 
    • The quality of food should also be improved. Focus on a fiber-rich diet that promotes faster healing and repairs the hole in the abdominal wall. 
    • Avoid pushing the body to its limit by lifting excessive weights, exercising longer than necessary, or performing the same strenuous activities on a regular basis. 
    • Get regular body checkups to identify if there are any health problems that can increase the risk of developing conditions like an inguinal hernia. 

    Visit a doctor timely if you notice a bulge in the abdomen or surrounding region and get it treated.
