Is a CT scan optional depending on the type of hernia?I'm the one that has a direct inguinal hernia with no symptoms other than a noticeable bulge.
The only time we obtain a CT scan for inguinal hernias is to determine if there are other causes. I have had two right-side hernias and one belly button hernia and now a left-side hernia. And if it is significant, I have a hiatal hernia, which I have kept in control with daily 30 mg. My first hernia was done in Toronto, Canada, at Shouldice Hospital, which was light years ahead of the US surgeries. It probably has to do with the way your body produces collagen.Once that is addressed, the vast majority of hiatal hernias can be repaired laparoscopically with a one day length of stay. It was found during my endoscopy exam by my former gastroenterologist. This does require obtaining information as to how well your esophagus works and how much acid is in your esophagus. Given the higher risk of incarceration and emergency issues, we typically recommend they are repaired once they are found.
