Les organes (p. ex. une petite partie de l’intestin ou des tissus) passent alors à travers cet orifice. Nous présentons ici les différents types de chirurgie de la hernie et expliquons ce à quoi il faut s’attendre avant la chirurgie, le jour même de la chirurgie et une fois de retour à la maison. Il s’agit notamment de ce qui suit : contrôle de la douleur, exercices pour respirer profondément et tousser, exercices pour les pieds et les jambes, soins de l’incision, activité physique, repas, bourrelet de cicatrisation, suivi avec le chirurgien et symptômes nécessitant des soins médicaux. Vous trouverez également des cartes pour aller aux différents hôpitaux où les chirurgies de la hernie sont effectuées (QEII, Windsor et Truro).
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0592, "Hernia Surgery as an Outpatient". This pamphlet is about hernia surgeries. A hernia forms when an outer wall of muscle breaks open or tears. This allows organs (such as a loop of bowel or tissue) to fall through the opening. Different types of hernia surgery are described. Topics include what to expect before surgery, on the day of surgery and after surgery at home. Some after surgery topics include pain control, deep breathing and coughing exercises, foot and leg exercises, care of your incision, physical activity, meals, healing ridge, follow-up with your surgeon and a list of symptoms that need medical attention. Maps to the different locations where surgery is performed (QEII, Windsor and Truro) are provided.
