I have an upper hernia, I can usually push it back in but it pops right back out?
I have an upper hernia and I am 51 years old I have had this problem for a while now I can usually push it back in but it pops right back out and it hurts at what point do I need to go to the emergency room to have emergency surgery because I don’t have insurance at this time.
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
In umbilical hernia if you mean so
Intestines that can’t be pushed back through the stomach wall sometimes don’t get adequate blood supply. This can cause pain and even kill the tissue (known as gangrene), which could result in a dangerous infection. In addition, if an obstruction of the intestines occurs, emergency surgery might be required..go o to the emergency room immediately if the intestine becomes obstructed or strangulated.
severe abdominal pain
tenderness in the abdomen
a bulging or round abdomen
redness or discoloration.
Wear an abdominal belt if you can not afford syrgery
Make sure it is always in because it can cause serious problems if u ignore it
