A hernia is a bulge or protrusion of tissue or organs through a weak area in the abdominal wall that can be surgically repaired with a hernioplasty. Hernias can happen anywhere on the body, although they are most frequently discovered in the groin or abdomen. A bulge or swelling in the affected area, together with pain or discomfort that may be made worse by physical activity or lifting, are the most typical signs of a hernia. Some hernias might also result in gastrointestinal issues including bloating or constipation. Depending on the size and location of the hernia, hernioplasty can be performed using a variety of procedures, including open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. Depending on the type of surgery done, recovery times can vary.
