Do hernia surgeries hurt as bad as they say?

I haven't actually heard anything yet. But since it looks like that is where I am headed, I would love some input from those that have had the surgery done.

Just got informed of what the facility fee would be. JFC Doesn't even include the surgeon and anesthesia fee.

Considering I'm not really in any real pain anymore I'm rethinking if this is really necessary.

My younger brother had the surgery a few years back. Didn't really experience much pain at all.

Good Call sir, I would think long and hard and maybe even(considering the price) get a 2nd or 3rd or (whatever turn it is) opinion.

This is common practice with these types of surgeries in the abdominal cavity. In some cases, pressure from the gas can actually feel like a heart attack and hurt all the way up into your shoulder.

Having been through it, I can tell you this - no amount of codeine/oxycodone will help with it but 800mg of ibuprofen and it's gone almost instantly.

Dangers of not treating a hernia : A guide to Hernias

It is easy to assume that if you are not experiencing any symptoms with a hernia then you can just ignore it in the hope that it will go away.

Unfortunately this isn’t always the case.

An untreated hernia will increase in size over a period of time which will also become more uncomfortable as well.

If you have a hiatus hernia then the danger with this is that stomach acid damages your oesophagus as it flows into it. This can lead to the development of ulcers which in extreme cases can bleed causing the patient to vomit. If blood is present in the vomit then emergency medical treatment is needed.

This can also result in anaemia.

Another problem is that of a strangulated hernia which can occur with any type of hernia. This is a condition in which the hernia remains trapped in place (known as ‘irreducible’) and becomes tightly compressed. This compression results in the blood supply being cut off to the tissue or internal organ (e.g. bowel) which comprises the hernia.

If this happens then the tissue or organ can deteriorate which is a potentially serious condition. The hernia becomes red, swollen and painful to the touch and is accompanied by symptoms such as the following:
•Nausea and vomiting
•Fever
•Severe pain
•Constipation

This requires emergency surgery to release the trapped hernia and restore the blood supply. This is a far more complicated form of surgery than that for hernia repair which means a longer recovery period.

So it is in your best interests to
have your hernia seen to as soon as possible.

You have to get a physical exactly one week prior to surgery. Schedule your surgery on a thursday or friday, and you will be back to work Monday.

Buy a pair of pants one size too big. The biggest pain is the pressure on your intestines from the gas. They pump you full of CO2 in order to have space for the fiberoptic camera. That gas puts pressure on you for 10 days. It will feel like 24 hours a day you have to take a HUGE dump, but you cannot. And it hurts to try.

Then, it's just gone, and you're fine.

Oh, and don't do any significant core exercises for a few weeks, despite them telling you that you are totally fine. It can hurt where they staple in the mesh.

The surgery itself lasts about an hour. You will be knocked out with general anesthesia. If you don't have a problem with anesthesia, then the surgery is as close to risk-free as you can hope for.

I had three done a few years back. Don't remember what the technical names are but belly button and both sides of my groin.

My best advice is watch some chick flicks while you're recuperating. I had the surgery on a thursday and laid around friday, saturday and sunday...... funniest goddamned weekend of television i've ever experienced.

Funny and hernia repair do not mix well.

This. My general practicianer and surgeon both warned me prior to my surgery that severe complications could arise if gone untreated. I had a double done a couple years back. Gonna be pretty sore for about the first week. The occasional tinge of pain when you bend, twist, or squat wrong will last for a month or so but then pretty much unnoticeable. I was off work for 2 weeks having both sides done lapascopically. May be less depending on what type of work you do. My work involves some heavy manual labor so my doc was erring on the safe side so I would not reinjure.
