Will it hurt where the hernia is fixed?

When you have a hernia repaired does it hurt much at the spot where it was fixed or just where they cut you? I am having one fixed when I have my c-section so the incision is no where near where the hernia. I am fine with the c-section since it is down low, but I was wondering if I will be sore above my bellybutton where the hernia is actually located. I am going to breastfeed again and was wondering if I was going to have much pain since that is where you hold the baby across you. I meant will it hurt where you get cut (which would be good) or where the hernia is (which would be harder). I will not be taking any pain meds. I did not need them after my first c-section and that is major abdominal surgery because I was fine. I was just wanted a heads up if that little spot where the hernia actually is will hurt. Not the incision because I expect that to and that is no where near the hernia anyway.

You will be sore mostly where the incision is made but you will be given pain medication and they work rather well. If your surgery is anything like mine your pain will be more of a dull ache then a throbbing pain

I am looking to get a second opinion on a wound I have on my right groin area. I had a hernia repair 2 years ago with mesh and my body has begun to reject the mesh. I was hospitalized twice on IV antibiotics which has helped settle it but there remains an open wound where the medical staff cut the skin to see beneath and an inflamed area around aproximately 3cm wide and 8cm long. The specialist gave me a really bad prognosis and said we would wait and see for now but it would need further surgery to cut out mesh. I will be getting married end March. I need to get well. Please advise. Christopher

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!

the baby was born yesterday and since then the baby is having hiccups and has been monitored by ECG and not been fed and is on IV what could be the reason? The doctors have been telling that the reason is because the baby drank the fluid in the womb. It was a c-section delivery.
