Groin hernia is not always dangerous, but this diseasecan cause life-threatening complications life.For that, hernia surgery needs to be done.
A groin hernia occurs when the intestine protrudes from the abdominal cavity and protrudes in the groin or groin area. The bulge will become more visible and can be painful, especially when coughing, bending over, or lifting heavy objects. In addition to pain, the bulge can also cause a burning sensation and a feeling of heaviness or discomfort in the groin area.
Dangerous Conditions Requiring Immediate Hernia Surgery
Hernia is a harmless disease, except when the intestine that comes out is pinched in the abdominal wall. The pinched part of the intestine cannot be passed by food, so it will cause blockage in the digestive tract.
In addition, the pinched intestine can also not get blood flow, so the intestinal tissue in that section will die. If not operated on immediately, this condition can be life threatening.
Symptoms of a pinched hernia include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Severe and sudden pain
- Can't fart or defecate
- The hernia bulge changes color to purplish red
When is Operation Hernia in Lipatan Paha Necessary?
In addition to treating a hernia in the groin, hernia surgery or descending surgery also aims to avoid complications of a pinched intestine. At the beginning of the appearance of the disease, hernia surgery is actually not always necessary and can be postponed, because only a little fat tissue protrudes in the groin or groin. This condition is not at risk of causing a pinched intestine.
Although surgery can be postponed, hernia sufferers need to see a surgeon once a year, so that their condition can continue to be monitored. Patients with hernias should also immediately see a doctor if the symptoms they feel are getting worse.
Although initially there are no complaints, but as the disease progresses, hernias can cause symptoms that are getting worse over time. Not only fat, the intestines will also be trapped and make the bulge bigger.
This bulge can cause very annoying abdominal pain. The bulge may also descend into the testicles. In this condition, the surgeon will perform hernia surgery.
In conclusion, hernia surgery is performed to treat hernias and prevent complications. Surgery may be postponed if the hernia sufferer does not feel any complaints. However, if the hernia has caused very disturbing complaints, especially if the protruding intestine has been pinched, then hernia surgery needs to be done immediately. To find out more about the surgical technique, you can consult directly with a surgeon.
