Doctor 2 weeks ago my child (female, 3 years) had a vaginal hernia operation after her vaginal lips. My question is why there are lumps and swelling under the wound area? Will it deflate over time or is it dangerous? Even though the time of the first operation (age 1y) did not occur like that.

Hello Tamimar,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Vaginal hernia is a condition in which the intestine which is covered by the peritoneum drops through the pelvic wall until it protrudes into the vagina due to the weakening of the abdominal cavity wall. This condition is not yet known the exact cause. However, high pressure in the abdominal cavity, congenital abnormalities that cause a weak gap in the abdominal wall, excessive pushing habits (including when diarrhea, constipation, coughing, or sneezing that does not heal). The definitive vaginal hernia is treated surgically, by turning the intestine and peritoneum back to their original position in the abdominal cavity, then patching a weak gap with a special net (hernioraphy).


The appearance of a lump and swelling around the former vaginal hernia surgery can be a sign of inflammation that occurs naturally a few days after surgery. However, if this condition occurs more than 1 week after surgery, you should be more vigilant. It may be that these lumps and swellings are the result of secondary infections in the former surgery, postoperative scarring, recurrence of hernias, or many other conditions that are not always directly related to vaginal hernia, and also the process of surgery.


Therefore, as early as possible, you should check your child to a doctor or pediatric surgery specialist who operated on him beforehand so that his condition is evaluated more deeply, and given appropriate treatment. Right now, you should not over-manipulate the lump excessively, always keep your child's operating files clean and dry, and first avoid your child from activities that make him push too much, for example lifting heavy loads.


Hope this helps ...
