Severe Pain Two Months After Hernia Surgery?
I was operated on in August last year, the first month until the 6th month after the operation I was healthy but in the last two months I often feel so much pain that I can’t get up because of rheumatic pain when standing and also my head is dizzy, is there any does it have anything to do with my illness?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A hernia is a condition in which an organ in your body, usually your intestines, goes where it shouldn't, such as your chest cavity, or testicles. The way to treat a hernia is to operate on it.
The pain you feel, especially because it occurs 6 months after hernia surgery, is more likely to be caused by other things, including:
Kidney stones. The presence of stone deposits in the kidneys can cause a person to feel excruciating pain, especially in the waist, back, and thighs or the so-called flank area. Muscle or bone injury. If you have a history of bumping into certain areas, falling or so on, the pain that appears could be due to certain muscles being injured. A pinched nerve. Because pain is transmitted by nerves, pinched nerves can also cause very disturbing pain. The hallmark is pain in the lower back, and radiates to one leg
And of course, besides these 3 possibilities, there are other possibilities in your condition. So you should check your condition with a general practitioner or a bone specialist (orthopedic) so that your doctor can check it. Your doctor may ask you to indicate where the pain is and when you have pain. If needed, your doctor will ask for X-rays to be done on certain parts.
Meanwhile, you should reduce your physical activity, and do not lift heavy weights or exercise too hard. Drink lots of water, and you can apply painkillers or take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the instructions listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
