Patient Comments: Hernia - Types

What type of hernia did you have?

Comment from: marmie, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: May 02

I have a large hernia from an incision for two colon resections in two years. The CT scan shows some of my liver is also out, I guess because of a severe cough 2 months ago. My last surgery six months ago popped open and took 3 months to finally close. The inguinal hernia is in that area.
