Hernia Post Operative Care

Going through any surgery can be an emotionally and physically taxing phase and hernias are no exception. But what is even more important is the postoperative care after hernia surgery. Once you have undergone a successful surgery, it is important to take care of your health and ensure that you follow every instruction given by your doctor for the postoperative care.

There are a number of things to remember after your surgery like having a swelling at the surgical site is a common occurrence after the procedure and you need not worry exceptionally for the same. Even an abdominal bloating is a common observation in patients who are recovering after a successful surgery for a hernia.

One of the things your doctor will tell you when giving instructions about post-operative care for hernia is that you may occasionally see bruises or different skin colours during the healing process. This is normal and nothing to panic about. Also, if you find any swelling in the genital area and / or there is a fluid retention which feels like a lump, do not worry. These signs generally occur post the hernia surgery. All you need is to apply cold compress every time this occurs over the first few days at home. And you will see things improving pretty soon.

Apart from these symptoms that occur for the first few days, you also need to take care of the surgical site as part of your post-operative care of hernia. Your doctor will most likely inform you when you can take a shower, once you are back home. If they do not, make sure to ask them. It depends on the way your incision has been drained.

In case your incision has been closed by means of glue, you can take a bath from the same day. However, if you have a bandage covering your incision, your doctor would ask you to keep it dry. So, you must avoid showering for at least 3 – 4 days. You can take a bath post that, but make sure that the wet bandage is not kept on your incision as it can lead to infections. Remove it and replace with a fresh and dry dressing.

Another very important thing to keep in mind during post-operative care for hernia is to keep your activities at a minimum, unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. This does not mean you should not have any exercise. You need to keep moving your body and carry out some light activity as that helps in improved blood circulation and faster healing. However, do not undertake any strenuous activity.

There are a lot of things the doctor or hospital will tell you about inguinal hernia surgery post-operative care. Here is a ready list of things that are a must during your recovery period

 

  • Keeping the wound clean and dry – One of the most important requirements of post-operative care for hernia is to make sure the incision and the surgical site in general is kept dry at all times. This helps in avoiding infections as well as promotes faster healing.
  • Follow the dietary recommendations – While external healing is important, it needs to be adequately supported by internal healing. This is possible only by properly following the dietary recommendations as prescribed by the doctor and the nutritionist.
  • Light Activities, especially walking, are a must – During postoperative care after hernia surgery, it is very important to aid the blood circulation as much as possible. One of the best ways to do so is by walking, as that does not stress out the abdomen muscles and yet gets the blood circulation going. Hence, try to walk as much as you can.
  • Strenuous physical activities are to be avoided – While light activity like walking is recommended when recovering from an inguinal hernia surgery, avoid any heavy exercise like lifting or running or climbing stairs that strains your abdominal muscles. Such activities should only be restarted gradually and after consulting your doctor.
  • Do not drive until your follow up visit – Under no circumstances should you be driving under the influence of anesthesia. Make sure to check with your doctor when can you get back behind the wheel. It is better to start after a few weeks and as a rider, before you start driving on your own again. However, your doctor will be the best person to advise you on this.
  • Check with your doctor before resuming sexual activity – This is also an important point to remember and check, when visiting your doctor for the post-operative follow up meeting. Resume only after your doctor has confirmed that it poses no risk for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just like medicines, rest and exercise, another very important component of your comprehensive post-operative care for inguinal hernia is the diet that you will be consuming.

For an infant, it is advised to resume oral feeds when they wake up after the effect of the anesthesia wears off. The only thing to monitor is that their respiration has stabilized.

For grown up children and adults, you will typically be given a diet chart to be followed by your doctor or diet consultant. It is good to consume fresh fruits and vegetables and as much as possible take in fluids. This helps in avoiding the bloating that some patients may feel as well as preventing constipation.

The entire process of preparing for and undergoing a surgery can be stressful for anyone. After the surgery is over, it is always better to spend the recovery period at home. The familiar environment and the support of family members can help you recover much faster. However, you still need the expertise of specialists during this period. This is where we come in.

Conditions We Treat

How We Made A Difference

  • post operative care for hernia, Post Operative Care Hernia  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • post operative care for hernia, Post Operative Care Hernia  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • post operative care for hernia, Post Operative Care Hernia  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000
