ऑपरेशनच्या आधी घ्यावयाची काळजी




  • There will be some swelling discomfort, pain. Numbness in the operated part. It is a natural response of the body to any operation. Most of it will settle down within a few days.
  • You should take a bath without covering the dressing. Water will not enter or in any way cause harm to the incision.
  • Occasionally some fluid or fat tinged with blood may ooze out of the wound. Do not worry, cover it with dressing
  • Some people experience a dragging pain in the testicle, this is controlled by wearing a well-fitting underwear.
  • Hernia is a result of a weakness in the abdominal musculature; it is aptly called a rupture. The defect is covered with mesh which remains in the body permanently without causing any problems This experience is shared by surgeons all over the world during the last decade
  • As the repair of the defect is done without any tension Patients can walk and even climb stairs within a few hours of the operation. Now there is no need to take rest for several weeks, as was the practice a few years ago. Most of the patients are discharged home within a day
  • You can use Indian style toilets
  • You can drive a car any time depending upon your subjective comfort.
