Repair of your inguinal hernia does not require any diet restrictions after surgery. Of course, you should strive to eat healthfully for general purposes, but in the long run a person can digest foods normally after groin hernia repair.

The aim of this study is to evaluate sexual functions which are affected by inguinal hernias and may change after hernia repair surgery. A total of 47 patients who underwent Lichtenstein tension-free anterior repair and inguinal hernia surgery were evaluated in terms of erectile function, intercourse function, sexual desire, overall satisfaction and orgasm satisfaction using the International Index of Erectile function questionnaire IIEF scoring system before surgery and in the first and sixth months after surgery. Parameters evaluated with the IIEF score before the surgery and in the first and sixth months after surgery were compared statistically using the Wilcoxon test.
Background: Chronic postoperative pain after inguinal hernia surgery can affect sexual function. A new short form questionnaire for inguinal hernia pain related sexual dysfunction SexIHQ was introduced and applied to a register based cohort of total extra-peritoneal hernioplasty TEP operated patients. Methods: Sexually active men, 30—60 years old, recorded in the Swedish Hernia Register for a primary inguinal hernia TEP operation were included.
Chronic groin pain is defined as pain that is present for more than 3 months after the inguinal hernia surgery. A hernia is a condition in which part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a muscle. In an inguinal hernia, the intestines or fat from the abdomen push through the lower abdominal wall into the inguinal, or groin, area.

We respect your privacy. Think again. Although people can experience temporary sexual dysfunction because of pain and pelvic floor spasms, the condition is rare. The anatomy is actually separate.
For open hernia repair surgery, a single long incision is made in the groin. If the hernia is bulging out of the abdominal wall a direct herniathe bulge is pushed back into place. If the hernia is going down the inguinal canal indirectthe hernia sac is either pushed back or tied off and removed.
