Good afternoon. I want to ask .. my child has had a hernia surgery in January 2019 at the age of 8 months .. only at the end of June when he starts to actively go out, if he cries like to enlarge the scrotum again … does that include recurrent hernias huh? that’s the reason why it can repeat?
p dir = "ltr"> Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
A hernia is a condition characterized by the release of internal organs through weak muscle walls or connective tissue. Many types of hernias, one of them is scrotal hernia. Scrotal hernias are characterized by the presence of a part of the intestine that comes out of the abdominal cavity through the lower abdominal wall in the direction around the genitals, causing the appearance of a lump in the scrotum, which can be painful or hot.
The lump that appears on the scrotum is not always a hernia scrotalis, but can also be other conditions such as hydrocele, epididymitis and varicocele. However, typical for this scrotal hernia is a lump in the scrotum that disappears, which occurs mainly when pushing, coughing, crying children and other activities that increase pressure in the abdominal cavity. The lump will disappear, especially when the child is lying down. In addition to these peculiarities, added to the history of having experienced a previous scrotal hernia that has been performed surgery. So that the condition of the mother's child is now most likely indeed experiencing recurrenous or recurring hernia. There are several causes that cause recurrence of scrotal hernia after surgery, namely a child experiencing constipation or difficult CHAPTER chronic, children often cry strongly, there are disorders of connective tissue metabolism so that repair after surgery becomes inhibited, the type of surgery and the type of mesh or buffer that is selected.
In this case, you should immediately bring the child back to consult with a pediatric surgeon who handles. So that further inspection and handling can be carried out.
Thus hopefully useful.
