This text will focus on the procedure called hernia repair and several possiblecomplications that can arise following the surgery. Almost after every singlesurgery some complications can happen but people should bear in mind the fact that this procedure is oneof the safest most common operations possible today. Problems that can occurafter the hernia repair are very mild and minimal.


The first problem we will talk about is bleeding though this complication may occurafter almost every surgery. However, after the hernia repair, this happens extremely rarely. Some bruising spots can be visible after the procedure, and the pain can also occur after it though unfortunately this pain is common after anyoperation. But the level of pain is much more important.

After the herniarepair, pain can vary from mild to acute, and several medications can be usedto relieve the pain. This pain is usually present no more than six days, afterwhich it recedes, but the problem can sometimes last for just a couple of days.Remember that if you are in pain after the surgery, this does not mean that thehernia has returned.

Sometimes pain can remain for a longer period of time,which is connected with chronic pain. This is why people confuse this chronicpain with recurrence of the hernia. Unfortunately this pain can be induced bysome other problem usually a nerve entrapment and if this happens a specialist should be visited.

Sometimes nothing can help with the pain and inthese cases, surgery is the only solution. In cases of persistent pain,surgery will cut out the sensory nerve which causes the problem, and this shouldeliminate the pain. This nerve entrapment is considered to be extremely rareand some professionals have never even seen this condition in their offices.

Infection is another possible complication, since just as in any other operation,some bacteria can cause the infection. However, this problem is also very rare. We havementioned that problems with hernia can return, but just as any other complication wehave already mentioned, this one is also very rare. Almost every hundredthpatient suffers from this complication. The return of the hernia can be inducedby infection faulty repair or some problems with tissue, anemia, obesity andmalnutrition. In some cases of hernia repair, male population can suffer fromcertain damage of the testicle. Improper blood supply some technical errors andswelling can cause this problem. At the end, we have to repeat that everycomplication connected with hernia repair surgery is extremely rare. Theyhappen only in 1.5 % of procedures.
