Survivability of Femoral Hernia
Due to advanced care and innovative treatments, the survivability of femoral hernia is high. Once a patient receives surgery to repair the femoral hernia, it does not usually come back.
If the patient experienced an incarcerated femoral hernia, a portion of the intestine that was blocked may need removal. This can increase the recovery time and required therapies. Doctors can help explain the survivability of these additional therapies.
The long-term prognosis is good for most patients after surgery. It’s important to understand the potential risks of the procedure. Speak to a doctor at Florida Hospital to learn more about what to expect during and after surgery. Schedule an appointment online.
