What are the signs of a hernia

For inguinal, femoral, umbilical, and incisional hernias, symptoms may include:

  • An obvious swelling beneath the skin of the abdomen or the groin; it may disappear when you lie down and may be tender.
  • A heavy feeling in the abdomen that is sometimes accompanied by constipation or blood in the stool.
  • Discomfort in the abdomen or groin when lifting or bending over.
I’m have throbbing pain in my lower groan area and I’ve had hernia surgery 10 years ago and it’s the same place can’t hardly walk without extreme pain ?
You probably need to see a doctor ASAP. It could be a recurrence of the hernia with strangulation of bowel loops. This is a serious condition.
This may be a serious case of acute recurrence of hernia. You'd better go to the hospital as soon as possible to avoid intestinal necrosis.
Sounds horrible! What is intestinal necrosis?
Necrosis means the tissues present there die because they were not being supplied with proper blood. With intestinal necrosis, patients may notice these symptoms: weakness, weight reduction, sudden belly ache, availability of blood in Calais, nausea, vomiting and temperature increase. The treatment aims at preventing it from reoccurring. Then a healthy habit is a must—life without tobacco and alcohol and visit your doctor regularly.
