Morning, so I want to ask about Inguinal Hernia disease that my father experienced. So my father had had a hernia operation about 10 years ago, but it seemed to leak again. And the testicles are somewhat enlarged. I want to ask, if my father performs a second operation the risk of leakage is greater than the first operation? Note: the position of the hernia on the right

Hello Ridhofadilah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Inguinal hernia is a condition when there is an organ in the stomach that 'escapes' through the opening of a hole that is normally around the inguinal (groin). This condition can occur on both the left and right sides because the gap exists on both sides.


Hernias themselves can occur due to the lack of a strong frontal abdominal wall supporting the position of certain abdominal organs, causing these organs to 'escape' and enter through the gap.


In patients with hernias, especially in adult patients, the operation performed is the installation of a device that serves to help strengthen the weakness of the abdominal wall, and this operation has a risk of causing recurrent hernias that are quite low, but can still occur again if the triggering factors for hernias are not avoided after surgery such as lifting heavy objects, straining for a long time, coughing or sneezing.


Although hernias can recur, it is still advisable to have your father's condition checked by a surgeon for further examination because enlargement of the testicular sac is not only caused by inguinal hernia but can also be caused by other conditions such as hydrocele, inflammation of the fruit testicles, or even tumors in the testicles.


After an evaluation by a doctor, then you can further determine what action or therapy should be given for your father to overcome these complaints.


I hope this helps.
