Does anyone know about hernias and the problems connected to surgery on this health forum?

Recommended Posts

My best friend had a hernia surgery 2 night ago... and for the last 2 days he must spend 1-2 hours in the bathroom to urinate, etc. Its like the muscles/nerves to "send commands" to use the toilet have been cut. He feels like his bladder/intestines are full... but nothing comes out. It takes 2 hours on the toilet for anything to happen naturally.

I've been reading medical websites, and it says that one of the "hernia surgery complications" is the inability to urinate or have a bowel movement. :redface: But none of the websites say if this is fixable. I cant find any answer....

And perhaps one of you are familiar with this topic.

Of course, we are going to talk to the doctor ASAP... but I'm also wanting to talk to anyone who is familiar with this topic, as well...

Any info would be appreciated :)
