Hernias in women

Posted on February 8th, 2012 No Comments

Hernias are more commonly associated with men, but women can suffer from these severe conditions as well. The problem is that hernias in women may not have the same physical appearance.

Women can experience all of the same debilitating pain that are associated with hernias, but they may not have the excess lump where the hernia is located. The absence of  this bulge makes it extremely difficult for doctors to diagnose hernias in women. A lot of times, women are misdiagnosed, and can continue to suffer severe pain.

A study has reported that hernias in women total eight percent of all hernias. Doctors believe that this number could be extremely low due to the misdiagnosed hernias in women. It is important for women to undergo testing, including an MRI and a vaginal exam in order to determine the cause of pain.

Surgical mesh is often used in hernia repair surgery. AlloDerm is a common surgical mesh that has been associated with several side effects. If AlloDerm was used in your hernia repair surgery and you suffered a side effect, please contact the AlloDerm lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
