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

He did you a favor. Give it some time, this is not unusual .

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 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.

I had a hiatal hernia repair during my sleeve. I believe it’s pretty common. If you did have a hernia it could cause problems later on as the bowel can come out through the hole in the lining and you could end up with an obstruction.

I also had a hiatal hernia that was removed. I was having awful acid reflux before my surgery and it was the culprit, so they fixed it and all is better now.

I am going to tell my surgeon to take out anything he sees that is not healthy and could cause me to have to come back later! I really wish he could do a face lift too but wrong end!😂

Where did you have it done? My surgeon repaired mine too while doing my sleeve. Someone said it’s common.. I guess it is! Wow!

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
