Hernia removal



Recommended Posts

My Dr claim he remove a hernia during surgery. I feel like he shouldn't have because i don't remember giving consent for that. I am actually very upset about the situation because i don't feel I had a hernia problem. I feel like suing him at this point because I am in more pain than i need to be because of this and my bellybutton is swollen an looks ugly

My doctor did two "extra" things while performing my surgery, as well. A fact I didn't learn about until after the operation. I was surprised, and a little miffed as he indicated this might slow my healing process, and I need to get back to work. That said, much better to have it taken care of now than to have another surgery in a couple months. I'd recommend seeing how you feel in a few weeks. If you are still angry, lodge a complaint with the hospital. It would be hard to win a lawsuit when he can prove it was going to be needed sooner or later, so wait to see how you heal first.

I had a hernia repaired during my sleeve. I have seen it is very common to find it while they are in there. Mine was very small. However we did discussed what ifs before the surgery and what I would want him to do in certain cases.

I also lost my gall bladder during my surgery. They also removed most of my stomach. I had not felt sick until the weeks prior to my surgery when I was a tad nauseous and losing weight.

What did he do Gallbladder & Appendix ? My surgeon said these may also be removed if they appear to be problematic .

I am looking to have a large incisional epigastric hernia if possible durning my VSG.

I had a hernia repaired (just a minor one) and he found some kind of growths he removed, he said it wasn't cancer, so I guess that's alright.

The incision near the belly button is where the camera was inserted. Shouldn't have a thing to do with a hernia.

BTW, are you aware that a hiatal hernia is a major cause of reflux?

The only one who will get rich from a lawsuit is the lawyer.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
