Soumil started the topic Recurrent Hernia – Surgeon Recommendation in Canada in the forum Hernia Discussion 1 week ago
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.
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 very typical, hernia repair I’ll just wear some tights and comfortable underwear.
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 seromas ?
2) Do I have to worry about the seroma causing a recurrence or not letting the wound heal properly ? (these are things that I read online)
