Can a hernia lead to death?

When left untreated, any incarcerated hernia may progress toward becoming strangulated. This implies the hernia is firmly caught and blood will never again stream into the tissues. Without a typical blood supply, these trapped tissues might face death. A strangulated hernia isn’t extremely normal and will cause the following symptoms:

  • Severe pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Even death

A strangulated hernia requires quick careful medical attention at the closest doctor's facility. Leaving a hernia until this stage implies that you will lose the choice of picking the perfect kind of treatment/repair for the hernia type you may have.

In case you have a hernia, contact your physician immediately in the following situations:

  • Your hernia turns up extremely painful
  • Your hernia can't be pushed once again into your mid-region, and
  • You feel wiped out to your stomach or vomit, got a fever, diarrhea, inability to pass gas or got a bowel movement
