What is Hernia?
A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. This condition often manifests as a bulge, and while it may not always be painful, seeking timely medical attention is crucial.
Hernia Sign & Symptoms
- Visible bulge or lump
- Pain or discomfort, especially during physical activity
- Aching or burning sensation
- Feeling of heaviness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Weakness in the abdominal wall

Treatment options vary and may include lifestyle changes, medications, or surgical intervention. Our experienced medical professionals will assess your condition thoroughly and recommend the most suitable course of action tailored to your specific needs.
While not all hernias are preventable, adopting a healthy lifestyle can significantly reduce your risk. Maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding heavy lifting, and managing persistent coughs are proactive measures you can take.

Smoking can induce a chronic cough by irritating the lungs, which, as mentioned earlier, may lead to the development of a hernia. Additionally, nicotine in tobacco can weaken the abdominal wall, contributing to hernia formation and potentially causing recurrence after surgery.
Every surgical procedure carries inherent risks, including bleeding and infection. Individuals with specific medical conditions like diabetes, smokers, alcoholics, and the elderly face elevated risks. A skilled specialist can minimize the likelihood of bleeding, while infection prevention involves the prudent use of antibiotics. Recurrence, known as a recurrent hernia, is another concern post-surgery. However, a thorough understanding of the condition, elimination of causative factors, and the use of advanced techniques in repair can significantly reduce recurrence rates.
The experience is akin to a brief nap. Sensations during the procedure typically involve a minor needle prick during preparation. The surgery typically lasts around 20 minutes, and in some cases, only the hernia area is anesthetized, allowing the patient to remain awake and potentially engage in conversation with the surgeon.
The effects of anesthesia wear off within 2-3 hours, enabling gradual limb movement. Patients are advised to refrain from oral intake for 4-6 hours post-surgery, followed by a gradual return to a regular diet. Difficulty in passing urine initially is normal but resolves and mild postoperative pain is manageable with painkillers.
For planned daycare procedures, patients can go home once the anesthesia’s effects have dissipated, urine has been passed comfortably, and they are at ease with eating and drinking. A responsible adult is required to accompany the patient home, especially after general anesthesia. Discharge after 24 hours may be considered in some cases, with guidance provided on post-operative care, pain management, and antibiotic usage.
Recovery time varies based on factors such as hernia type, extent, general health, surgery type, and surgeon expertise. Discharge typically occurs on the same day or within 24 hours. Initial discomfort during movement is manageable with painkillers, leading to a pain-free state within a few days.
Return to regular activities depends on individual comfort levels and the nature of one’s work. Sedentary jobs may allow a return within 3-5 days, while physically demanding activities may require 4-6 weeks. Consultation with the operating surgeon is recommended for personalized advice.
Medical attention is warranted in case of fever exceeding 101°F, unrelieved pain despite prescribed medications, unusual bleeding, or persistent nausea/vomiting.
