Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Urination disorders as you mentioned, can occur after hernia surgery can be influenced by the following:
1. Pre-existing comorbidities such as enlarged prostate, urinary tract infections, diabetes and others.
2. Type of surgery, the risk of urinary problems in hernia surgery is around 5.9-38%.
3. Types of anesthesia, surgery with general anesthesia is more at risk of causing urinary disorders than regional anesthesia. General anesthesia causes loss of bladder muscle tone as a result of its effect on the autonomic nervous system.
We recommend that you bring your father back control to the doctor who performed the operation. Tell your father's condition. The doctor will perform a physical examination, as well as supporting examinations such as ultrasound of the urinary tract to determine the cause of urinary disorders in your father. The therapy given is adjusted to the diagnosis made by the doctor.
Thus, hopefully this is useful
