Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal hernias occur whenever the soft tissues that line the membrane of your abdominal cavity end up protruding from one of the weak points in your abdominal muscles. Bending over, coughing and lifting heavy objects can all cause extreme physical pain. Even though the hernia might not be life-threatening alone, the excruciating pain will not improve without doing something about it. Because of this, you can schedule your surgery with an Ambulatory Surgery Center at I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need inguinal hernia surgery?

Some of the common symptoms and signs associated with this condition include:

  • Bulging in the pubic bone
  • Gurgling, burning or aching where the bulge is located
  • Dragging or heavy feeling in your groin
  • Discomfort or pain in the groin whenever you cough, lift or bend over
  • Pressure or weakness in the groin

How is the inguinal hernia procedure performed?

An incision is made in the groin to help push the bulge back into the abdomen. The torn or weakened muscle will be sewn back together. A synthetic mesh is often used to help support and reinforce your muscle. Even though you will want to move around after the procedure, you have to take it slow. Give yourself about four to six weeks before being able to do all of the things that you once did.

What is recovery like after an inguinal hernia?

After surgery, you have to take things slow to avoid re-injuring yourself and causing the hernia to erupt once again. Allow your body the time it needs to heal by refraining from lifting anything heavy, bending over repeatedly or putting on weight. You want to maintain a healthy weight and eat plenty of fiber to keep your system working properly. Give yourself at least a month or more before trying to do everything you did before the surgery.

How much does inguinal hernia surgery cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,700, versus having to pay $37,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
