    The radiologist is fine

    Any surgeon with experience in laparoscopic surgery will be fine

    Best to ask them

    In Singapore like the UK hernia is not a separate specialty

    Dear Soumil
    Are you sure you have a recurrence the space that the hernia occupy sometimes fills with fluid this is reabsorbed in good time. It may take up to 3 months. It is called a seroma. I will go and see the original surgeon first as I think they have a responsibility to look at you and give you reassurance. And also testicular swelling is…[Read more]

    • Thank you for the reply. The way it feels and looks (and slight inflammation type of pain), I thought it would be a recurrence. Thank you for letting me know it can potentially be a seroma. I have a follow up appointment with the surgeon on Wednesday.

      Quick couple of questions for you:

      1) Does wearing tights/comfortable underwear get rid of…[Read more]

    I’d see a recommended surgeon and a simple suture repair will suffice. However remember Mesh is not the enemy but the irresponsible media reporting is!
    You can watch and wait but you may find over the next 7 years you have a 70% chance of needing a repair

    At your age I would recommend bilateral repair via keyhole technique and with the use of mesh – mesh is an adjunct to surgery just like metal is to knee and hip replacements and also the stents for use in patients with heart attacks. It is a scaffold pure and simple and all the complications that people describe with the use of mesh actually…[Read more]

    • Thanks a lot Sir for your advice. I was bit afraid of long term chronic pain after mesh implant but now I am bit confident after I read your post.

      Sorry to bother you , I have 2 questions in my mind as you said that the surgeon should have done it a lot.

      1) For person like me who is not in medical profession , finding experienced surgeon who…[Read more]

  • Every time you have an operation you create scar tissue. The best way to deal with this is to break down scar tissue manually so it can remodel and hopefully not give you as much in the way of contractual pain. So your answer lies with physiotherapy

  • We will have some answers to autoimmune responses and possibility of ASIA syndrome soon enough. My study Tackomesh is investigating patients after hernia repair by measuring the presence of at least 20-30 autoimmune markers or not from blood samples already taken before and at certain time points after surgery. Surgery involves mesh implantation.…[Read more]

  • all hernia repairs have a risk of chronic pain and most operations that involve an incision will have a risk of chronic pain – in addition whether you have mesh or not the incidence of you having chronic pain is the same. But will it effect you and your sports – it is unlikely, rare but possible (now I sound like a lawyer). The caveat here though…[Read more]
