What is Inguinal Hernia?

 Inguinal hernia is a  type of hernia  arises from a weak spot in the inguinal canal. It can be extremely uncomfortable and interfere with basic activities. And the most likely way to fix the hernia is through surgery. The abdominal wall’s weakening that allows the abdominal contents to leak into the inguinal canal is fixed during surgery. Since inguinal hernias and other hernias do not heal on their own, surgery is the only effective treatment. Depending on how severe the problem is, it can be done either electively or urgently. After taking into account the patient’s level of pain or discomfort, the degree of disturbance, and their general health, elective hernia surgery is recommended to them. Patients who experience life-threatening complications, such as strangling or imprisonment, frequently require emergency surgery.

Why Does it Happen?

When abdominal tissues or organs press through a weak area in the inguinal canal, an inguinal hernia, also known as a groin hernia, results. Males who have an improperly closed opening between their testicles and abdomen are more likely to develop this sort of hernia. The barrier usually closes soon after the baby is born. However, a partially open opening reduces the strength of the muscular wall and results in a weak area. A bulge begins to form when the tissues press on the weak spot, which may or may not initially create any symptoms. But symptoms will start to show as the bulge pushes the muscle wall and makes a hole.

Recovery Rate

Depending on the approach performed, inguinal hernia surgery recovery varies. The full recovery takes about 3–4 weeks when the laparoscopic procedure is done for the repair. Within the first week, you will be able to resume typical activities like walking, climbing stairs, sitting, etc., but the surgical wound will take longer to heal. If open surgery is required to treat the hernia, recovery will be difficult and you might need 4-6 weeks to feel fully recovered and get back to your regular schedule.

Risks & Complications

When to consult a doctor ?

A hernia won’t automatically heal, even if it stops bulging under a certain scenario. Delaying treatment might have serious consequences because there are no warning symptoms associated with it. The difficulties could develop suddenly, necessitating an urgent medical situation for the patient. A strangulated/incarcerated hernia may be present if there is a perceptible bulge or protrusion and there are accompanying symptoms of nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, or inability to have a regular bowel movement. In this case, you should seek medical attention right away.

    FAQ

    If the inguinal hernia is not causing any problems, then it is alright to delay surgery. Hernia surgery is normally delayed when the condition is not that severe. In the earlier stages, the doctors suggest using a truss for support and to keep the hernia in place. If the hernia starts causing pain and affect the life of the individual, then surgery is recommended.

    No. The doctors usually recommend watchful waiting if the hernia is not that serious. During this period, you can take preventative measures to stop the hernia from progressing. If prevention doesn’t work, then ultimately surgery will be required to treat the hernia.

    Ayurvedic and homeopathic treatment only helps to manage the symptoms of inguinal hernia but it doesn’t resolve the problem. Surgery is the only effective method to treat the hernia.


    The extent of scarring after inguinal hernia surgery depends on the technique used for the repair. If the open technique was used, there will be a single long scar on the abdomen that may fade after 4-6 months. If the laparoscopic technique is used, there will be 2-3 small-sized scars that will disappear within 3-4 months and may become almost unnoticeable.

    In most cases, the non-absorbable hernia mesh remains inside the body as a permanent implant. If the absorbable mesh is used, it degrades and loses strength over time.

    If needed, the doctor may perform hernia mesh removal surgery in patients who experience chronic pain, infection, or other mesh-related complications.

    Facts and figures around Hernias

    • Hernias can occur among people of any given age group.
    •  About 3-5% of healthy babies are born with hernia and the rate of occurrence increases by 30% among premature infants.
    • Hernias can be acquired by performing certain simple day-to-day activities that one can least expect to get hernia from, such as coughing, sneezing or weightlifting.

    What happens if you do not get a hernia fixed?

    It is understandable that going for a surgery is never a convenient option for anyone suffering from any disease. But in case of hernia, there are several risks involved if proper treatment is not provided in time. Delaying a hernia treatment might lead the hernia to get strangulated or incarcerated as it might get trapped outside the abdominal wall, cutting off the blood supply to the hernia and can obstruct the bowel, resulting in a strangulated hernia. Although not all hernias progress to this point, this is a potential risk.

    The risks would not come with any warning signs and the complications might appear suddenly, causing the hernia to grow and weaken with time. It is always better to get treated before any of the complications show up and interfere with the daily schedule, bringing drastic changes to the lifestyle which is never easy to cope up with.
