What Is Hernia :

A hernia happens when an inside organ such as an intestine or fat forces through a frail location in your muscle or flesh.

There are various types of hernias that can affect a person. Ordinarily, femoral hernia, inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias, and Hiatal hernias are detected during body examinations by our hernia specialist. If you are dealing with a hernia, it’s essential to attend it quickly by reaching out to a Hernia doctor in Mumbai as hernias do not heal on their own and if left unattended, it can cause complicates further leading to strangulation which is life-threatening.

Hernia can happen to anyone – acknowledging statistics as per journals and papers, 1 out of 10 people deal with a hernia at some point in life. It can affect both males and females and can occur at any age and sometimes even newborns may possess it. Hernia surgery in Mumbai is common and is conducted globally with millions of cases being tended each year.

  • Any condition that increases the pressure of the abdominal cavity over a prolonged period of time may become a cause for hernia eg. Obesity, chronic cough, heavy lifting, chronic constipation leading to straining during bowel movement.
  • Family history of hernia makes one more likely to get it.
  • Some hernias may be present at birth
  • Idiopathic, which means the cause is not known.

  • A hernia may first appear as a new lump or bulge in the groin or in the abdominal area. There may be an associated dull ache but usually it is not painful on touch. The lump increases in size on standing, coughing and may be pushed back/disappear on lying down.
  • A small painless hernia if left untreated, usually increases in size.
  • Occasionally, the hernia may become irreducible i.e. it cannot return to the abdominal cavity on lying down or with manual pushing. At this stage it also becomes painful.
  • Sometimes the loop of bowel that has herniated becomes obstructed. This can cause extreme pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation and needs immediate treatment.
  • At times the hernia becomes 'strangulated' ( explained further below ) in which the person appears ill with/without fever, nausea, vomiting and extreme pain even to touch. This condition is life threatening and thus a surgical emergency.

Listed below is a concise description of some of the common hernias. Although there are other types too, they are quite rare and beyond the scope of this piece of information

  • INGUINAL HERNIA
    This is the commonest type of hernia that occurs in the groin area at the top of the inner thigh. Commonly found in men, it is associated with ageing and repeated strain on the abdomen. An inguinal hernia or its repair should not be taken lightly because neglect in either of the situations can impair blood supply to the testicles, since the blood vessels that supply the testicles pass through the areas where this hernia occurs. Impaired blood supply may cause death of the testicular tissue requiring its removal.

  • FEMORAL HERNIA
    Found more commonly in women, this also occurs in the groin area, just above the line separating the abdomen and the legs. A femoral hernia should not be neglected as it has high chances of strangulation, which is a medical emergency. In fact almost half of femoral hernias first come to light as emergencies. Thus femoral hernias should be repaired at the earliest, before the complications ensue.

  • UMBILICAL HERNIA
    It occurs when fat or a part of the bowel bulges through the abdomen near the belly button. It is found in babies when the opening in the abdomen through which the umbilical cord passes doesn't seal properly after birth. It is also found in adults due to repeated strain on the abdomen.

  • EPIGASTRIC HERNIA
    It occurs in the midline of the abdomen, in the area between the naval and the lower part of the breastbone ( sternum ). This hernia always occurs in the midline because it comes out between the two rectus muscles of the abdomen that meet in the midline. Although the lump may sometimes appear off the midline, the defect/opening is always in the midline. It may be found in infants too because of congenital weakness in the midline of the abdominal wall.

  • INCISIONAL HERNIA
    It occurs at the site of a previous abdominal surgery for another cause, during which the abdominal muscles were cut open to allow the surgeon to enter the abdominal cavity to operate. Although the muscle is sutured ( stitched ) during closure, it becomes a relative area of weakness, potentially allowing abdominal organs to herniate through the incision line

The diagnosis of hernia is usually a clinical one, which means that your doctor will go through a history of your symptoms followed by a brief physical examination. During this check up she/he may feel the area of bulge by raising your abdominal pressure ( this is done by making you stand/cough ), as this manoeuvre makes the hernia more obvious. In case you have an inguinal hernia, the doctor will feel for the potential pathway by examining along your scrotum.To summarise, in vast majority of cases where there is an obvious swelling in the groin/abdominal area, which increases in size on standing, straining or coughing, a clinical diagnosis of hernia is made and NO TESTS are needed. More challenging diagnoses are best performed by hernia specialists.

The treatment is based on the features of the hernia, its impact on your quality of life, and your general state of health. Treatment options may include observation, use of a supportive device, or surgery. Surgery is the only way to fix a hernia. In some cases emergency surgery is required. The treatment option that is right for you will be based on a discussion between you and your surgeon

Indications for hernia repair surgery include :

  • Symptomatic Hernia: Hernia creating symptoms of discomfort, pain or interfering with activities of daily living.
  • Incarcerated Hernia: Hernia trapped outside the abdominal wall and cannot be returned back inside the abdominal cavity.
  • Bowel Obstruction: Hernia causing a blockage of the intestines requires surgical repair.
  • Strangulated Hernia: Hernia that has compromised the blood supply of the contents. There is a high risk of death of the tissues such as intestines that are contained in the strangulated hernia. This requires emergency surgery.

A) Laparoscopic Repair
The laparoscopic repair uses small incisions on the abdominal wall through which the instruments are placed into the abdominal cavity. The abdomen is filled with air and the repair is guided by the use of a camera. The hernia contents are brought back into the abdominal cavity and a mesh is secured in place to cover the hernia defect from the inside. The mesh helps to prevent its recurrence. The laparoscopic repair has the advantages of quicker recovery, less pain, and less risk of infection.

B) 3D Mesh Hernia:
A mesh is a supporting structure used to give strength to the hernia repair. It is used to cover the defect and reduce tension in the repair. Tension, otherwise, can lead to the recurrence of the hernia.

The mesh is made of synthetic material such as polypropylene or polyester. Alternatively, the mesh may be a biologic graft derived from animal tissue. The biologic grafts are often used if there is a great concern for infection as they tend to be resistant to infections.

C) Open Repair
The open repair is the traditional approach to hernia repair surgery with an incision made over the area of the hernia. The contents are returned back into the abdominal cavity and the sac is removed. Depending on factors such as the location and the size of the hernia, a mesh is often used to cover the area of the hernia defect. Otherwise, the defect is closed with sutures.

The open approach is commonly used for very large hernias or those that are complicated by factors such as bowel obstruction, infection, incarceration, strangulation, or recurrences.

D) How to know which hernia treatment option should you choose ?
The decisions regarding the laparoscopic vs. open approach hernia repair surgery and regarding use of mesh vs. no mesh will be individualized based on the characteristics of the hernia and the discussion you have with your surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Smoking can lead to chronic cough by irritating your lungs. As discussed earlier, long standing cough can cause hernia. It can also cause the hernia to recur after a surgery. Another factor is the nicotine in the tobacco that causes weakness of the abdominal wall, thus contributing to development of a hernia.

Any surgery carries with it some risks. The most common ones are bleeding and infection. These risks are higher in those with certain medical conditions like diabetes, in smokers, alcoholics and in old age . The chances of bleeding are almost negligible in the hands of a specialist and infection is avoided by judicious use of antibiotics. Another problem with hernia is that it can come back after a surgery. This is called a Recurrent hernia. However, understanding your condition, ensuring any causative factors are eliminated and a repair using the most advanced techniques can significantly bring down the rate of recurrence.

It's like taking a small nap! All you will feel is a small needle prick during your preparation for the procedure. The surgery usually takes about 20 minutes. Occasionally, only the the area with the hernia is anaesthetised and you will be awake and probably having a chat with your doctor!

Anaesthesia will wear off within 2-3 hours after surgery, following which you will gradually be able to move your limbs. Do not take anything by mouth for 4-6 hours after surgery. You can then start with sips of water followed an hour later by a regular full diet, unless advised otherwise ( In a few cases you may need to wait for a day before you resume your regular diet ).As anaesthesia wears off, there may be difficulty in passing urine for the first time. However, this returns to normal and you will be able to pass urine as usual. Mild pain is expected after the surgery which is easily managed with pain-killers.

If your operation is planned as a day care procedure you can go home as soon as the effect of the aneasthetic has worn off, you have passed urine and you are comfortable, eating and drinking. Since a general anaesthetic is used frequently used, it is advisable that a responsible adult take you home and stay with you for 24 hours. At times you may be given a discharge after 24 hours in which case you may need to stay in the hospital for a night. Before you are discharged you will be advised about post-operative care, painkillers and antibiotics.

This time frame cannot be generalised, as the recovery depends on various factors like the type of hernia you have, the extent of the hernia, your general health and medical condition, type of surgery and expertise of the operating surgeon. As you may have earlier read, in most of the surgeries you will be discharged from the hospital on the same day or within 24 hours. In the beginning there may be discomfort during walking, climbing up and down a staircase and during movement. However, this is easily controlled with painkillers and you should be pain-free within a couple of days.

In most of the cases the answer would be 'as soon as you feel you can'. How soon you can also depends on the type of work you do and your normal level of activity. Typically one can return sooner to a sedentary job ( 3-5days ) than one that involves strenuous physical activity or lifting weights ( 4-6weeks ). This question is best discussed with your operating surgeon.
