Hernia pain relief


50% of patients with a hernia have no pain. Having pain or not having does not really mean very much. A dangerous hernia can be painless. A painful hernia can be benign for many years.

Hernia repair usually cures hernia pain. If you have a repair with mesh you might develop permament mesh pain. Hernia pain prior to hernia repair is a risk factor for developing permanent chronic hernia mesh pain.
