Hernia repair after RC

Thanks Wendy. The info was useful. The threat of infection especially with 2 foreigh bodies (IPP and mesh) is troubing especially since my husband is allergic to Cipro and all the drugs in that family. I would pass on the IPP but he wants it and it is his decision.

Hi,

It's probably more common than we realize; there is some info on webcafe here:

I know a number of folks who have been there, done it and come out fine.

I wish your husband and you good luck with the surgeries!

Hi, Folks
My husband had his RC just about one year ago. About one month ago I noticed he was lumpy around his middle. After poking at him I found a lump. We were relieved to learn it was a heria - which show you the kind of impact full on bladder cancer and a RC has on you. The doctor said that he would do the repair and penile implant at the same time. We just rescheduled it for November as we are moving. Has anyone else developed at hernia near their incision and did the repair take care of it? I think I asked this question before but my worries seems to have crowded out the answer.
Thanks, Sam
