Hello,
Sometimes we can find hematoma after inguinal hernia surgery. a hematoma is a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel. This hematoma needs to be drained as it might undergo calcification and then may be more troublesome. I suggest you to consult your operating surgeon and get it drained.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Dear Mrs Kaur
As i said on my previous message seen my operating surgeon on 8th april.he checked hematoma on the right side and said that it is now smaller but to me it is not smaller but bigger also noticed small one on the other side as well.He said these should dissapear themsel in time ans asked me to go and see him 6 weeks time.It is still painfull when l am walking or standing long.Should l wait another six weeks or ask for 2 nd opinion.Would appreciate your view in this matter

Hello,
You can wait for the time that your surgeon has advised. Application of warm compresses, mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are helpful. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a surgeon.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
