  • Hi Harrington,

    I developed a right-side inguinal hernia almost a year after surgery due to a bad cough, I believe this side was weakened due to surgery in 2020.

    Because of my Cystectomy I had to have open surgery which I put off for a few more months until I felt confident enough, this left a seven-inch scar and was more painful than the radical cystectomy that I experienced.

    Since the hernia surgery I have no further problems regarding this issue.

    All the best...
