Yes Hernia Surgery surgery available in Pakistan?
The doctors usually recommend hernia surgery because of the following symptoms: • The tissue becomes trapped in the abdominal wall. That’s when the blood supply to the tissue gets cut off. • The hernia becomes strangulated. This can cause permanent damage and is a surgical emergency. • The hernia causes pain or discomfort, or it’s growing larger.
There are two types: Herniorrhaphy and hernioplasty.
Hernioplasty (mesh repair) is a surgical procedure in which instead of stitching the muscle opening shut, the surgeon covers it with a flat, sterile mesh, usually made of flexible plastics, such as polypropylene, or animal tissue. Small cuts are made around the hole in the shape of the mesh and then surgeon stitches the patch into the healthy, intact surrounding tissues. Damaged or weak tissues surrounding the hernia will use the mesh, as a supportive, strengthening scaffold as they regrow. Hernioplasty is also known as tension-free hernia repair.
Herniorrhaphy (tissue repair) is the oldest type of hernia surgery and is still being performed which involves a surgeon making a long incision directly over the hernia and then surgical tools are used to open the cut enough to access it. Tissues or a displaced organ are then returned to their original location, and the hernia sac is removed by the surgeon who stitches the sides of the muscle opening or hole through which the hernia protruded. Once the wound has been sterilized, it is stitched shut.
The recovery time for hernia surgery is usually between two to three weeks.
Yes, you can live with a hernia without surgery if the doctor says it is not dangerous. If it is a dangerous hernia that can cause complications, then your doctor will recommend you to go through the surgery. Hernias do not go away on their own though.
