Good night doctor. My name is determined mujiono, I have a child aged only 2 months and a half. .my daughter suffered from an inguinal hernia (bowel drop). So can it be or not if you are 2 months and a half after surgery? Is it dangerous or not for the baby?
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Cases of inguinal hernias in babies are more often found in babies born prematurely and more in boys. This condition is caused by a portion of the intestine which extends from the lower abdominal cavity and sticks out to the area around the genitals.
This condition usually cannot be eliminated without the aid of surgery. Operations are carried out to avoid the bulge getting bigger, hard textured, and blackened. If left unchecked, this can permanently damage tissue in the body. The purpose of a hernia operation is to treat the hernia that appears, prevent the reappearance of the hernia, and prevent more dangerous complications. However, sometimes hernias can reappear after the surgical procedure is done.
To find out more, you can consult with a specialist who treats your baby, the doctor who knows more about your baby's current condition because the doctor has done a direct examination with your baby.
