Hernia Complications

Complications may arise post-operation, including rejection of the mesh that is used to repair the hernia. In the event of a mesh rejection, the mesh will very likely need to be removed. Mesh rejection can be detected by obvious, sometimes localised swelling and pain around the mesh area.

Continuous discharge from the scar is likely for a while after the mesh has been removed.

An untreated hernia may complicate by:

  • Inflammation
  • Irreducibilty
  • Obstruction
  • Strangulation
  • Hydrocele of the hernial sac
  • Haemorrhage
  • Autoimmune problems.
