Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your son has Inguinal Hernia.
The only treatment option for hernia is surgery.
As regards the expenses incurred I can not make comment on it as I have no idea of charges of surgery in ac country where you are living
As regards the insurance coverage normally the insurance coverage for surgery or any major hospital expenses are covered six months after getting insured.
Please enquire with insurance agency or company regarding the premium and other aspects.

On Monday, so now seven days ago I had inguinal hernia surgery (it was laparoscopic surgery) with mesh repair. The doctor informed me I would not have bowl movement until Thursday. I did not have a BM until Saturday and there were large amounts of blood on the stools and after wiping. Also during the surgery there was a fluid sac that he found and remove to further test. I have yet to hear about the results. I am curious if bloody stools are common after a surgery of this kind?

hip and quad pain I just had a lumbar laminectomy and discectomy done 6 weeks ago. I told my neurologist about my quads hurting really bad like an achey cramp. Also, they burn a little along with my hips while they hurt too. The legs feel very heavy and weak. Sometimes I have hard time walking and I stumble a lot with tripping over very small items. My calves are slowly starting to feel the same as my quads. He thinks it is because my lower back muscles were cut. I told him they were like this 6 months to a year prior to the surgery and it feels to be progressively getting worse. They don t feel like this all the time. It usually lasts from one day to two weeks. All he did was just give me muscle relaxers. The reason for the surgery is for eight years I have had degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, herniated disc, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. I am a white 33 year old male and weigh 219 pounds. My question is, what can it be?
