Case study- Large Hernia
A 30 year male patient came to us about one year after having undergone surgery in Patna for a Road traffic accident that necessitated abdominal surgery for intestinal trauma. He had a long recovery course from that surgery and subsequently developed a large hernia so much so that when he would stand the entire abdomen would bulge out as in the before surgery video. Due to this he was unable to return to work. He felt pain every day. He had difficulty with urination and passing stool as he was unable to strain. He was refused surgery at several centers due to extreme size of hernia. He was understandably extremely anxious when he came to us. After optimization for surgery with high protein diet and respiratory optimization he underwent Abdominal wall reconstruction surgery (Posterior component separation with Transverse abdominis release). He underwent a smooth post operative recovery and has returned for 3 follow up visits over 1 year and continues to do well. He is now active, returned to work and able to lead a near normal life.
