Can Coughing And Sneezing After A Hernia Surgery?
hello, I’ve had a hernia surgery week. the doctor had removed all the stitches and I had been allowed to take a normal shower and drive. but the problem is if you cough and sneeze, roughly how to anticipate it. because those two things as long as I can make a stitch in broken. then what about the characteristics of the stitches you want to break down inside? if it just breaks down and then falls down again or there are certain indications, thank you
Hello Nasap27, thank you for asking.
Hernias actually consist of many types, depending on location. A hernia is basically a discharge of a cavity through an abnormal hole formed by loose connective tissue. Hernias generally occur in men, although women can also experience them. Sometimes hernias result from daily activities that often involve lifting heavy loads, or from prolonged coughing. However, sometimes hernias also occur without preceding these things.
Basically if the doctor has allowed you to move normally, then the wound has healed. If you cough or sneeze once in a while, it doesn't matter. Unless you have a cough that's great for days. There is no specific sign to know whether the hernia hole is open again or not. However, if the stitches are damaged, you may experience pain in the area. If you are worried about the condition of your wound, you can control the treating doctor. In the meantime, you can do your daily activities as usual, it's just to avoid lifting weights too heavy. Try not to push too hard, for example during bowel movements.
All these answers can help. Regards.
