Why does a patient need Femoral Hernia Surgery?
A femoral hernia is a hernia near the groin or upper thigh. In this usually an intestinal tissue bulges out of a weak spot in the femoral canal. When femoral hernia starts causing discomfort or pain, it has to be operated.
Femoral hernia is an uncommon hernia. Women are more likely to suffer from this condition.
What are the Different Types of Femoral Hernia Surgery?
There are two types of femoral hernia surgeries.
- Femoral Hernia Open Surgery:
The surgeon performs this surgery after administering general or local anaesthesia to the patient. He then makes an incision in the groin and separates the hernia from tissues around it. The contents are pushed back into the abdomen and the femoral wall is repaired. The cut is then closed with stitches.
- Femoral Hernia Laparoscopic Surgery:
This is performed under local anaesthesia. The surgeon makes multiple small incisions around the hernia. He then inserts a laparoscope which has a camera attached to it at the end, through one of the incisions. He then corrects the hernia and strengthens the femoral wall using special tools inserted through the incisions. The cuts are closed at the end of the surgery using stitches.
Is Femoral hernia surgery painful?
Femoral hernia surgery is performed under anaesthesia, so you will feel no pain during the procedure. You can experience some pain and discomfort for 1-2 weeks following the surgery which can be managed with medication.
What happens if femoral hernia is left untreated?
It is best you undergo hernia repair surgery as early as possible because as the hernia grows bigger the muscle walls of abdomen get weaker and more tissue bulges out increasing the chances of complications like strangulation and tissue death.
What is the hospital stay after femoral hernia surgery?
You will be able to get back home on the next day of hernia surgery. You will be able to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. You can undertake strenuous activity or exercising after 6 weeks.
