Almost all hernias in the muscle of the abdominal wall are the same thing, namely a 'window of weakness' that has opened up in the wall tissue. The name, more than anything else, relates to the location of the hernia.
The effects of these hernias and the ways they are repaired are very similar in principle and we will now cover how they occur, what they do to you, which ones can be dangerous and the very different ways they are being repaired these days, depending upon who you go to.
A hernia (rupture) is usually noticed as a lump, commonly in the groin or the umbilical region. It appears when a portion of the tissue which lines the abdominal cavity (peritoneum) breaks through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. This can give rise to discomfort as the hernia enlarges and can sometimes be dangerous if a piece of intestine becomes trapped ('strangulated') inside.8th april 09, wednesday, 12.00pm admitted, 3.20 pushed to OT.
fuhhh, mmg xperiance sgt...i've never been to OT (tp x la bole msk tgk dr operate pon tp dpt la teman ammar smpi ke pintu auto OT). luckily ammar nangis sket2 b4 that coz dia lapar kn puasa dr 10 n time tue dh almost 3.30pm. so nk elak dia nangis bwk la jln2 around hospital. coz dr ckp if ada bg minum gak, takot masa operation ammar tersedak n boleh masuk lungs dia. dh 1 hal lain lak. sooo, cian mmg cian tp beh baik ikot jer. xmo dh pape lagi kt ammar kn?
lps surgery, cian nangis jer...pas operation trus bkk mata n cr umi dia...nurse lari2 pggl i...bole dgr ammar nangis...so kn msk dlm n calm kn ammar.
