      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.

      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.

      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.
