      Hi,
      I am 54 years of age and about 2 years a go I was diagnosed with a left inguinal hernia that the surgeon now says needs surgery.
      I was also diagnosed with sigmoid diverticulitis on 2013 with flare ups about every 18 months.

      May the sigmoid diverticulosis be a contraindication for inguinal hernia surgery?
      Is there someone else in the same situation as myself?

      Thanks

      It is not a contraindication. But that history is important to share with your surgeon, as there are risks, especially with laparoscopic surgery, in the face of prior infection and scarring from diverticulitis.

      In my case the surgeon will use the open technique surgery, I hope that everything will go well.
      Thanks
