My story- new hernia- long Hx
Ultrasound confirms inguinal hernia and CT from 6 months ago shows Umbilical hernia (see below)
Does pelvic floor-specifically rectocele need to be addressed prior to hernia repair-will it effect outcome of hernia repair for pain relief?
Should umbilical hernia (no pain) be addressed at the same time of the inguinal hernia?
I called UofM–first appt was in May 2017. That’s pretty far out -and I would want to have surgery in March or April at the latest.
Ultrasound right Groin 2/2/2017
Indication: Right groin pain. Possible hernia.
Technique: Multiple grayscale sonographic images of the right groin region
were obtained with and without Valsalva and with the patient in the supine and
Findings and impression:
1. There is a fat-containing right groin hernia that appears to be indirect
type. The neck measures approximately 11 mm and the hernia sac measures
approximately 3.9 cm in maximal dimension. No evidence of bowel herniation is
seen. The hernia appears to be reducible.
2. There is no sonographic evidence of a spigelian or femoral hernia in the
right groin region.
There is no preperitoneal air or fluid. The abdominal aorta is normal in
caliber. There is mild bulge of anterior abdominal wall with tiny
fat-containing umbilical hernia.
