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?

I recently had surgery for a hernia and have been very constipated the 3 following days. Today my stomach began to get bloated to the point of not being able to walk. I have been eating a lot of fiber trying to aid in a bowel movement but have not had much luck. Do I need to be eating more food overall? I have not been hungry lately because of stomach pains.. was wondering what else I could do to help get 'regular' again
