Can gallbladder lap coli be done without the repair of hernia?
It's for your own good...
I have gone through your medical history and understood your concerns.
The reason why your doctor advised to repair the umbilical hernia at the same time when you will get your gallbladder removed is to spare another operation within few days after gallbladder removal. This is for your own good.
Certainly, gallbladder lap coli can be done without the repair of the hernia. Although no symptom yet, it will come the day when your will have the hernia repaired (very soon).
Wish all the best!
If anything unclear, just write me back!
Is there a test to determine if a non-symptomatic umbilical hernia is actually present? I have had prior MRI's and CT's but it has never been visualized. How can I be sure it's real?
My concern is that a umbilical hernia repair will permanently raise the navel. Is that typical? If so, what can be done to restore the navel to it's original state after the hernia repair? Does that involve another surgery?
Should make sure you have hernia...
Let me explain a few things:
- if no hernia or the hernia is asymptomatic and won't cause problems (even after you have Lap Coli procedure); then, no need to repair it.
Lap Coli procedure won't aggravate or neither cause hernia. My idea was that as you are going to have an intervention, and they both are simple, you can have both of them without being operated again in a short time.
If MRI and ct-scan resulted ok and no hernia visualized, then, I think no need to repair it.
From what you are reporting and describing, I doubt you might have hernia. So, once again, you should make sure you have hernia before deciding for reparation.
Hope it answered to your queries!
