Anyone have a hernia while pregnant??

Post by tigersuz22 » Wed Mar 04, 2009 8:17 pm

Hi everyone!

I am 19 weeks pregnant. Last year, I had a diagnostic laparascopy where they found the beginnings of a hernia on my right side. I never had issues with it (or even noticed it) until a few nights ago. I was using the restroom and straining (I'm sorry, TMI!) and felt like something tore. Ever since then, it hurts to walk, hurts to lift my leg, and it just generally feels like there's something either torn or out of place. It's not unlike the feelings of an ovarian cyst.

I'm headed to the OB tomorrow to have it looked at but have any of you had similar issues? I know that treatment depends on the severity but has anyone had surgery or had it resolve itself?

A friend of mine had surgery to repair a hernia while pregnant.
