Hello Iwan, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically every medical action that is to be carried out (even though it is only in the form of taking oral medication) has its own risks. Although every medical action has risks, often medical action must be taken because if not done the impact can be more dangerous to health.
Same is the case with hernia and hernia surgery. Hernia disease if left and not operated can cause dangerous complications such as incarcerated hernias and strangulated hernias. Inkarserata hernia is the occurrence of staples on the intestine (so that the intestine can not reenter) accompanied by impaired bowel movements. In this condition food movement will be hampered and symptoms of intestinal obstruction / obstruction appear, such as severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, unable to defecate and fart, bulging stomach, etc. Strangulated hernia is a disruption in the blood vessels that aggravate the pinched intestine. This condition can cause the intestine to become deprived of oxygen, experience tissue death, and eventually rupture in the abdominal cavity. This condition is very very dangerous and life threatening if left unchecked. Therefore hernias should be planned for surgery immediately.
Surgery does have its own risks (such as risk of infection, risk of anesthesia, risk of nerve disorders in the area of operation, chronic pain, etc.). Your pediatric surgeon will certainly consider all the good and bad and fortunately doing hernia surgery on your child. As long as you operate at the surgeon (not just anywhere), these risks can be minimized. Discuss further with the surgeon and anesthetist who will treat your child to find out more about the risks that may occur in children.
