Laparoscopic abdominal hernia surgery is a procedure performed to fix tears and openings in the abdominal wall. Hernias usually develop in weakened, strained spots, such as scars after previous open surgeries. They are more likely to arise if You:
- cough frequently,
- have difficulties with Your bowel movements,
- experience problems with urination,
- suffer from obesity,
- strain Yourself by lifting heavy objects.
An abdominal hernia is usually visible as a bulge under Your skin. It might cause pain, especially during straining, passing stools or water, coughing, and staying in the same position for long periods of time. If those symptoms are accompanied by nausea or vomiting, Your hernia might be entrapped, and You should immediately contact a doctor. It is better to perform surgery at an earlier stage of the condition. A hernia is a problem that does not disappear by itself.
