      Is it always a catastrophic failure, e.g. the sutures tear through the abdominal wall tissue and result in a larger hernia?

      What is a typical re-occurrence scenario with a standard sutured tissue repair? If one has an open tissue repair and feels a tear/twinge/sensation*n, is it best to have it evaluated and fixed prior to a re-occurrence?

      Thanks.

      @holeinthewall
      For inguinal hernias, recurrence is usually small.
      It should not be repaired is you only have twinges.
      Avoid smoking, coughing, constipation.
