A hernia is a protrusion that occurs inside of the stomach or the area of the groin. This is caused when contents of the stomach are spilling or pushing their way through a weak and torn muscle or tissue that is usually there to hold it back. The cause for this could be any number of things.

For some people it could be a surgery that was performed and that left scar tissue behind which weakened the tissue. In other cases it is caused by obesity, pregnancy, or too much pressure during heavy exercises and over exertion during certain sports or for any other reasons.

Although the cause is not always known what we do know is that there are two treatment options that we can use to help fight against it. When the protrusion is still small you could choose the hernia belt. This is a contraption that will fit around the legs and around the back.

It is not comfortable to wear – but it does a good job of keeping the bulge down and keeping everything in its rightful place. However, this can only be used up to an extent. Over a period of time the hernia could become worse as the tear becomes wider. When that happens it will be very apparent and the belt will not be of any use.

By that time you should put aside the hernia belt and instead focus on having surgery done to repair the damage once and for all. This should be done soon and before the hernia becomes strangulated. This is a dangerous occurrence that causes the blood flow to stop and it can be fatal to the patient. This is always a fear that people are going to have when they see that it is starting to become so large that anyone is able to notice it.

  2. How will the recovery after a hrniea surgery be?I’m concerned i might have a hrniea (going to the doctor in the morning). My stomach area is a bit tender, but i can’t feel any lumps down there. There is a tender spot though. I’m a bit overweight, and have a bit of a gut. Well, right where the stomach rolls over and it goes back inward toward my waist line (i don’t care if this is a bit unnecessarily detailed) there is a soft tender spot. Doesn’t feel like a lump when i stand, or when i flex my abdominal muscles. It just hurts to be touched, to cough (only hard though) and to laugh like a hyena. Also when i stand up it will occasionally throb a bit. Is this a hrniea?If i do have to get a surgery. How long will it take to get back to a semi-normal life. I mostly just play computer games with my spare time, how long before i can sit in my computer chair and do this? Also how long before i can drive to school (i’m in college) and carry my books and do all my work and such?How long before i can start exercising again?Thanks for any and all answers.
