  • Hernia- Large loss of domain?

    Posted by Gail on January 26, 2018 at 3:51 pm

    I am continuing to search for a hernia specialist in my area. I have found a few that seem to deal with “complex hernia repair” issues, but I found one surgeon that talks about loss of domain. What does that mean when talking about a hernia?
    This is what it says under what he deals with/treats.

    “infections and masses. He repairs all types of hernias, including advanced abdominal wall reconstruction and repair for large loss of domain incisional hernias.”

    Any thoughts on what this is talking about?

    Even if there is a good hernia surgeon that is within an hour or two of my area would be great. I just need help finding an experienced one! Thanks so much!

    Hi Gail,
    I’m sorry, it’s me again. I did just go back and read one of your posts (maybe your original one….). We do have a little bit in common but not entirely. I may even have some questions for you!! LOL

    Hi Gail, it is kind of a murky subject. Here is a link to a website that explains it and also has a photo of a pretty huge “loss of domain” situation. I hope it doesn’t offend you, but I don’t know how to send you the link without the picture. https://www.sages.org/wiki/loss-of-domain/
    Do you have a complex hernia? I’m curious because I believe that is what they referred to mine as…I had surgery on Oct. 11, 2017 and I’m a female. My hernia was large and was an incisional hernia at the site of a former ileostomy (I’ll let you look that up if you don’t know what it is…). Thanks and best of luck to you! I had my surgery at a large, well-known hospital and drove almost 900 miles to have it done. If you have any questions, just let me know. I may not have the answers since I don’t really know your full situation.
