Chronic postoperative pain after inguinal hernia surgery can affect sexual function. A new short form questionnaire for inguinal hernia pain related sexual dysfunction SexIHQ was introduced and applied to a register based cohort of total extra-peritoneal hernioplasty TEP operated patients. Sexually active men, 30—60 years old, recorded in the Swedish Hernia Register for a primary inguinal hernia TEP operation were included.
The lymphatic system is comprised of the lymphatic tissue, vessels, organs and the lymph, which help in eliminating waste products from the body. The lymphatic tissue includes the spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and the lymph nodes. The lymphatic vessels are responsible for transporting the lymph fluid from various body tissues to the circulatory system.
Lymph nodes work as filters in our bodies, trapping infection and illness to prevent them from spreading. These smooth, pea-sized glands can become enlarged, swelling as big as a grape or tennis ball. Swollen lymph nodes in the groin in women have many of the same causes as in men.
Background: Chronic postoperative pain after inguinal hernia surgery can affect sexual function. A new short form questionnaire for inguinal hernia pain related sexual dysfunction SexIHQ was introduced and applied to a register based cohort of total extra-peritoneal hernioplasty TEP operated patients. Methods: Sexually active men, years old, recorded in the Swedish Hernia Register for a primary inguinal hernia TEP operation were included. Two initial questions of the SexIHQ identify patients with pain at sexual activity.
Men are always just one misstep away from groin pain. Even if they manage to avoid serious injury, some aches and pains just come with the territory. It's important for a man to know which types of pain can be shrugged off and which require medical attention.

Chronic groin pain is defined as pain that is present for more than 3 months after the inguinal hernia surgery. A hernia is a condition in which part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a muscle. In an inguinal hernia, the intestines or fat from the abdomen push through the lower abdominal wall into the inguinal, or groin, area.
Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedures. Post-operative pain is one of the main factors determining sexual life satisfaction and general quality of life. However, not much research has focused on the problem of chronic pain after a corrective surgery and its impact on the quality of human sex life. Recurrent inguinal hernia to a large extent has been reduced due to the use of synthetic mesh, but there was a serious problem - chronic postoperative pain, which significantly reduces the overall quality of life of patients.
The most feared issue surrounding vasectomy? Certainly not the fact that men fire blanks afterwards. Most are just fine with having the gun go off without any resulting collateral damage.
