Good Evening Everyone 

I have not been on here for some time.

I had a nephrectomy in June last year, today I felt a hard swelling above my wound. I have just been to my urgent care centre as I was little concerned & after examination was told I had a hernia possibly from my op..

Anyone else had this any advice about this would be most welcome.


  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read that you've recently been diagnosed with a hernia, which I guess isn't pleasant.

    I'm not a member of this forum but noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
