There Is Still Pain In The Hernia Surgery Scar That Has Been 2 Years Old?
Good evening, I want to ask sevina about my hernia surgery scars which are after about 2 years ago but still feel painful. I often feel mild pain when I do heavy activities or lift heavy weights. Besides, the skin around the surgery feels “strange” to the touch, unlike other skins. Is that normal and what should I do? thank you
The pain that arises in a surgical scar that has been around for a long time can arise due to several possibilities, such as heavy physical activity, excessive stretching at the site of the surgery scar, or it can trigger a new hernia at the same location. In addition, skin disorders such as infections, keloids or other disorders can also trigger pain at the site of the hernia surgery.
To be sure, it is better to do a direct examination of the doctor so that the cause is known and given the appropriate treatment. To reduce pain, several efforts can be made such as not doing many strenuous movements, avoiding heavy lifting, taking pain relievers, warm or cold compresses at the painful location and pay attention to whether there are changes that indicate infection such as discoloration of the skin. , lumps appearing, feeling warmer and other symptoms to help doctors determine the cause.
