Hernia Treatment in Bangalore

A hernia is defined as a condition which occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue which holds it in place. For example, hernia occurs when the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall. Mostly, many hernias occur in the abdomen region between the chest and hips. However occasionally they can also appear in the upper thigh and groin areas.

Having a hernia isn’t always a life threatening condition. Most hernias aren’t immediately life-threatening, but if they are not treated and complications occur they may become a cause of concern very soon. Usually hernias don’t go away on their own and require surgery to prevent dangerous complications caused due to hernias.

There are several types of hernias that occur in different regions of the body. Here are the different types of hernias –

  • Inguinal hernia This type of hernia is the most common to occur in the body and is mostly seen in males. Inguinal hernia occurs in the inguinal region in the groin where the spermatic cord passes from the abdomen to the scrotum. Inguinal hernia occurs when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal the area bulges out.
  • Umbilical hernia Umbilical hernias most commonly occurs in children and babies in the belly button region. It is caused when the intestines bulge through the abdominal wall near the belly button. A bulge will be present in or near your child’s belly button, especially when they’re crying or coughing. An umbilical hernia is the only kind of hernia that often goes away on its own as the child grows up and the abdominal wall muscles get stronger. Umbilical hernia resolves on its own by the time the child is around 1 or 2 years old. However sometimes, in a few cases, If the hernia has not resolved on its own by 5 years of age, surgery can be used to correct the condition. Not only children, but adults can also suffer from umbilical hernia which can be caused due to repeated strain over the abdominal wall. Conditions like obesity, pregnancy, or fluid in the abdomen are the main causes for umbilical hernia in adults.
  • Hiatal hernia Hiatal hernia occurs when a part of the stomach protrudes up through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. This type of hernia is most common in people over 50 years of age. If hiatal hernia is observed in a child, it’s typically caused by a congenital birth defect. Hiatal hernias generally cause gastroesophageal reflux in which the stomach contents leak backward into the esophagus, causing a burning sensation in the mouth or throat.
  • Ventral hernia A ventral hernia can be present from birth but it is more commonly acquired at some point during lifetime, due to  several factors. Factors that contribute in ventral hernia formation are obesity, strenuous activity, and pregnancy. Ventral hernia occurs when tissue bulges through an opening in the muscles of the abdomen and  the size of a ventral hernia reduces when a person lies down.Ventral hernias may also occur at the site of a surgical incision after abdominal surgery. This is also called as incisional hernia because it can happen due to surgical scarring and weakness of the abdominal muscles at the site of surgery.

If you are suffering from any of these hernias then don’t worry, visit bottom’s up clinic in Whitefield Bangalore for complete treatment , diagnosis and prevention of hernia.

FAQs of Hernia

There are a lot of causes behind hernia.

  • Hernia in children occurs when they are born with weak abdominal muscles. Even If an adult person has weak abdominal muscles, it can make them more prone to hernias.
  • Other factors can be obesity, smoking, and pregnancy as these put pressure over the abdominal muscles. Frequent pregnancies also increase the risks of getting a hernia.
  • A hernia may develop even if you lift heavy weights at the gym without proper gear or heavy objects at work places or at home. Hernia can develop during intense physical activities as well.
  • Hernia can also be due to chronic constipation as there is heavy strain during a bowel movement.

Doctors can usually diagnose a hernia by asking a few questions and by examining you. Your health care provider may also order an imaging test such as an ultrasound or MRI to be sure about your condition.

Hernias do not go away on their own with umbilical hernia in babies as an exception, that too only sometimes.

If your hernia is not causing any symptoms, your doctor may recommend “watchful waiting,”. In watchful waiting your doctor will wait for symptoms to appear in order to start the treatment. If no symptoms or complications appear you may not need any treatment.

Contact your doctor or health care provider immediately If you are experiencing pain in your hernia. If your hernia is getting larger, and is causing heavy discomfort and complications, your doctor may suggest surgery to repair it.

Hernia operations are safe. They resolve most of the issues related to hernia and are usually done on an outpatient basis. Here, the surgeon makes an incision on the affected area and then puts the tissue either back in place or removes it. Then the muscle wall is stitched back together properly.

One needs to be careful after your surgery so that no recurrence occurs. You will be asked by your doctor to restrict strenuous activity and exercise for about six weeks. Follow a healthy diet and make sure you follow all your doctor’s orders following a hernia repair. Go for regular check ups and inform your doctor if you feel pain or discomfort.

Trusses are devices designed to hold the bulge of an inguinal hernia in place in order to give you a feeling of compactness and comfort for a while. However not everyone will feel the same level of ease after wearing it.

Hernia trusses don’t treat the hernia, they just hold the area in place. Always keep in mind that hernia truss should only be used as a temporary measure, if at all.

Some experts feel they may not be the best choice and in some people they can even make a hernia worse. So never wear a truss on your own and make sure to talk to your doctor before you decide to try a hernia truss.

If not treated in time hernias can cause complications.

  • If the contents of the hernia bulge become trapped in the abdominal muscle it can cause complications. One can develop what is called an incarcerated hernia. Such a type of hernia needs quick medical attention.
  • If hernia is not treated, then it can become strangulated, which is a life-threatening emergency.
  • If the hernia pain increases suddenly and the site feels tender, call the doctor right away.
  • If the bulge becomes dark or red, and you have trouble in bowel movements inform your doctor. If you cannot have a bowel movement at all or you are unable to pass gas, call your doctor immediately as it is an emergency.
  • If you start vomiting or running a fever when you know you have a hernia, call your doctor right away.
