Is it possible to do gastric sleeve LSG before inguinal hernia repair?
Hello, Unfortunately, I'm super obese, my BMI is 49. I had inguinal hernia surgery 10 years ago, but I can feel it now.. the wall is opened again but it doesn't pop out very much.. only a little. Fortunately I am planning to have LSG, But my concern, is it okay to do LSG first then later do the hernia? I read that when they do the LSG they pump the abdomenal with CO2 gas, won't it leak through the hernia during the procedure??! Thanks
