Fashion Industry Problem: Fixing Up Own Hernia

A California man attempted to perform hernia surgery on himself in the week . The 63-year-old used a standard table knife and even tried to seal the wound with a cigarette when local police finally arrived on the scene. What can make a hernia so bad that an individual would do anything to urge it out of their system?

Pain occurs from hernias for several reasons, and may and does often vary in character (sharp, dull, burning etc.) and severity from patient to patient. Pain can occur because the tissue at and round the hole is being stretched or torn and thus in some fashion damaged. This usually will cause pain directly at the location of the hernia and is characterized as Localized Pain.

Pain, localized to the world of the hernia defect itself is typically the results of stretching and tearing of the wall tissue like the world muscle and tendon because the bulge increases, this pain tends to be more intense. because the bulge reduces, and therefore the contents of the hernia fall back to the abdomen itself, the pain reduces or maybe even disappears, only to recur again because the hernia once more protrudes. The character of the pain varies. It’s going to be a severe, intense and sharp type pain, or it’s going to be only a dull ache within the area. Other potential characteristics include burning, stinging and “raw sensation” sort of pain.

Pain can also occur as a result of irritation of or damage to area nerves as a result of the hernia and its contents pushing into or pinching the nerves. This too may cause localized pain, or may cause pain at a more distant area and is named pain .

If the hernia irritates, inflames or damages nearby nerves, the pain felt from the hernia might not be at the location of the hernia, but rather at the world to which these nerves are traveling. for instance, pain from an hernia could also be felt as discomfort within the scrotum of men or the labia of girls , or the rear, upper leg and /or hip area. this is often because nerves that provide sensation to those remote areas travel through the canalis inguinalis (site of the hernia) and should therefore be irritated or inflamed by the hernia itself.

If the abdominal contents became trapped or damaged within the confines of the hernia, as is that the case with hernia Incarceration or Strangulation, the pain could become more generalized in location and should even involve the whole abdomen if secondary peritonitis develops.
