Hi doctor,

I am a 29 year old male. I am suffering from right inguinal hernia for the past two months. I have consulted a doctor and he asked me to go for surgery. Is it possible to cure inguinal hernia without surgery? Currently I have consulted a homeopathy doctor and I am on medicine given by him.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If the hernia is in first or second degree then there is a treatment. For third degree hernia, surgery is the only treatment option.

At the time of pain and swelling you can take the following medicine.

  1. Varanadi kashaya 450 mL - 10 mL twice a day diluted with water after meals.
  2. Vridhivadhika vati one twice a day.
  3. Kankayan guti one twice a day.

Try to avoid things which give excess pressure on abdomen such as coughing, laughing loudly and lifting heavy things.
