I had a urostomy about 18 months ago, and some six months back noticed a swelling to the side and below the stoma. Surgeon said that it may need an operation should it get any larger but they are reluctant to do so as it can result in infection. I have noticed in other postings on this forum, members mention that they have had more than one hernia operation, and I just wonder why. What can - and did go wrong?
Well, perhaps before that even, in summary, what does a hernia operation entail?
