Precautions after hernia surgery are very important to avoid any potential complications. People treated with surgery for hernia should give themselves adequate days of bed rest and relaxation to avoid straining the body. Throughout the recovery time, it is important to follow the post-operative care to heal yourself properly
Diet plays an important role in our overall wellbeing. After hernia surgery, a special diet is needed. Due to the anesthesia given during surgery, it becomes hard to digest solid food; therefore, the consumption of liquids is suggested after a few days of surgery. Your doctor will analyze the condition and allow the consumption of solid accordingly. Avoiding fluids may interfere with bowel movements and cause constipation. Straining due to constipation may cause pain around your wound. Higher fluid intake will soften the stools and make bowel movements easier
Light physical activities like walking can stimulate bowel movements and relieve constipation. Try to start with an exercise plan after consultation with your therapist instantly. Deep breathing exercise must also be done to oxygenate the blood flow thus speeding up the healing process.
Constipation is a common problem after a hernia surgery which may get worse by pain killers. To avoid constipation, one should increase the usage of laxatives and stool softeners. Consult your doctor for an over-the-counter laxative for hernia repair.
Fiber should be added slowly post hernia surgery as it can cause complications ranging from gas and bloating to abdominal cramps. However, the intake of diet rich in fiber will make sure smooth and easy bowel movements
Cleanliness is the key to quick recovery after surgical treatment of hernia
It depends on your surgical treatment. If your surgery is laparoscopic surgery, it will allow you to return to your normal routine faster as compared to recovery from the conventional surgery.
A follow-up is very important. Your doctor will examine if the wound has healed properly or you need some special care involving the dosage of antibiotics for a few more days.
