Have any of you had to deal with hernias after your surgery?  I have lumps in my abdomen right around the points they went in laproascopically...I haven't had them diagnosed as hernias yet, but I'm pretty sure that's what's going on.  Is this a common thing or am I just lucky?

Thanks, 

Jim

I have one, big as your fist, right above my belly button. It's causing more pain as time goes on, but it does make a cool squishing sound and freaks people out when I push it in. Seeing a doc on Monday to hopefully get it fixed.

Do you walk around and say "Look what I can do!" Hahaha! I'm sorry your having though. Hope everything goes well getting it repaired. 

 

Take care,

Then it freaks people out. It's followed by "EEEWWWW!", "Thats' gross", and the ever popular "don't ever show me that again!"

I hear it can be common. Hopefully be pain free soon! 

Take care,

My large scar was diagnosed as a hernia this year. I had 2 laparoscopic surgeries on that side. The biggest scar was from the nephrectomy about 6". That one my doc recently said caused a hernia. I think it's very common.

I forgot to mention I thought I had a hernia near my incision. Super painful. When I told my Surgeon pressed on where it was and said it was just the internal stitches. Very painful. 8 months later still very tender.
