Brief Answer:

Severe spasms are not normal, immediately consult your surgeon.

Detailed Answer:


I have evaluated your query thoroughly.

* Severe spasms are not normal after umbilical mesh repair, though minor pain may be acceptable.

* As the pain medicines are not helping, I strongly recommend to call your doctor and discuss regarding emergency pain control.

* Primary relief will be with analgesic injection and secondary management would be ultrasound evaluation of the operated part to locate the cause in terms of possible fluid collection or else.

* Still better evaluation can be possible with details of associated vomiting, fever, bloating or other features if possible looking upon the intensity of pain from your side .

Wishing you fine recovery.
