  • 3 months post op

    Hello, I had my hernia repair and abdominal muscle repair in September. I am still in a lot of pain and I my skin is numb a good 8in in diameter. I feel as if my hernia is back because I hurt so bad in the same area (umbilical). I hurt so bad to the touch In certain spots where I get so nauseous. Am I suppose to still hurt like this or is something wrong. My surgeon is no longer a surgeon, he quit or retired. My primary Dr knows about this but is taking their sweet time about finding me another surgeon. Any info is helpful.

    Your pain does not sound typical for being three months after surgery. Definitely worth getting a second opinion. If you would like help finding a hernia specialist, you can post the area that you live in. Sounds like you need help from someone other than your primary care. I believe if they were experiencing the pain that the patient is, the doctors office might not take their sweet time in responding. I remember seeing a quote referring to physicians dealing with patients who have chronic pain from hernia repair : “Don’t delay. Try walking even one day with a pebble in your shoe” or even more appropriately, a painful piece of mesh in your groin or abdomen!! Best wishes.

      I called my primary today and told them to send a referral to a place I suggested. They said they will get right on it. I'm literly sitting here in tears bc it hurts to do anything and debating weather or not I should go to the ER where the surgeons are. I totally agree, if they were in pain like this they would not hesitate and get in right away. Thank you for the reply!

        What type of hernia(s)?
        How was it repaired? Lap, open, robotic?
        Was mesh used?

        3 months with these symptoms is not typical.
        You need evaluation by a surgeon that does hernia repairs.
        Does the surgeon that did you operation have any partners that could evaluate you?
