What risks are involved in hernia repair surgery?

Hernia repair and hernia removal are routine surgeries that have very few risks. It is possible that even after hernia surgery, the hernia can return.

Other complications are unusual, but you should know:

+ There will be some swelling and bruising in the testicles or at the base of the penis for men.
+ Numbness or discomfort in the groin area if a nerve becomes trapped or damaged during surgery.
