  • Recurrent Hernia – Surgeon Recommendation in Canada

    Posted by Soumil on April 2, 2021 at 4:29 pm

    Hi Everyone,

    I’m 22 years old Male in Toronto, Canada. I had a Left Inguinal Hernia surgery repaired by mesh 3 weeks ago. However, it looks like either he missed my hernia/didn’t operate properly and my hernia is back (the same bulge I had before in the scrotum above the testes is still there after the surgery). Does anyone know any good surgeons in Toronto to treat recurrent inguinal hernia surgery ?

    Shouldice is not an option for me as they are pricey for the stay and I don’t have issues with the mesh. It seems my surgeon either missed my hernia or didn’t operate on it properly.

    Thank you Doctor. Is it possible that the surgeon missed the hernia completely ? The only reason I ask is that the symptoms I show now (the bulge in exact same spot) looks exactly the same as the previous hernia I had.

    Most likely this is a fluid collection from the surgery, seroma or hematoma, and not a hernia recurrence. A simple ultrasound can diagnose this. It is extremely rare to have such an early recurrence.
