IBS constipation type and inguinal indirect hernia 3


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Direct Inguinal Hernia

I am 70 years old. About 5 years ago, I developed slight swelling on right groin area. Inguinal Hernia was suspected and was kept under watch. After about a year, it was diagnosed Inguinal Hernia (R)and advised operation. But I chose to take precautions and to avoid operation. Over the period, it has grown in size. There is, most of the time, no discomfort or pain. However, some times I get a bruised feeling. At times, it even almost diappears.

Today, I again showed to a surgeon and he said it is a Direct Hernia and there is no hurry to get operated. Further, he advised abdominal exercises so as to strengthen abdomen muscles so that further protrusion can be checked.

Please advise if there is a homoeopathic remedy to cure it completely or partially.

Thanking you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Take Calc Phos 6X - 4 tablets as a dose - Daily for sometime.

If you have access to a good homeopath, please visit him in person. If not present more symptoms about yourself [not just the problem] for the forum to suggest appropriate remedy.

I have no other symptoms and otherwise enjoying normal health. I take regular exercise,- walking, yoga and Pranayam. Only the presence of this Hernia is a matter of iritation more than discomfort.

Why 2 different ids?

Did the problem appear gradually or suddenly?

One day I noticed very slight elevation ( swelling) in the groin area which gradually grew in size over the past 5 years. Some times, it even disappears. These days it is quite pronounced and at times gives a bruised feeling.

Pl take Nux vom 30C - 3 equally spaced doses on a single day.

After 2 days start taking Calc Phos 6X as suggested above.

Provide periodic feedback.

I took three doses of Nux 30 yesterday. Now, I have to start Cal Phos 6x from the day after. Is this to be taken once a day or three times a day? Please advise
dee37 last decade
Start with once a day. We will change the frequency based on the progress.

Any changes after Nux, pl post back.
srisri last decade

Apparently no change so far with Nux Vom 30. Have now started with one dose of Cal Phos 6x every day.

Today, I notice about 10% reduction in the bulge of the hernia. I shall continue with early morning dose of Cal Phos 6x

dee37 last decade
Yes, pl continue... Post progress.
srisri last decade
Continuing with Cal Phos 6x one dose every morning. It is very slowly but surely improving. The bulge size has not increased, in fact reduced a bit.

I might be able to take picure with Digital camera and send you pictures periodically for you to assess the progess.

dee37 last decade
Pl continue Calc Phos 6X.

Add Alfa Alfa Q [Mother Tincture] - 5 drops in 30 ml water stirred as one dose - After dinner.

Keep posting the progress.

This site has a feature to upload picture. You can use that. Its at the bottom of the post reply window. You have to scroll down to see it.
srisri last decade
When I click on that link, page opens but there is nothing on it, nor at the bottom of page. Please advise
dee37 last decade
Did you post some of your problems with the id Sskps? Even in this thread you posted once with that id. In homeopathy it is advised to treat totality of symptoms and not symptom by symptom.

Any further update?
srisri last decade
I tend to pass large hard stool. The size of the hernia reduces considerably after passing the stool. Some times, it even nearly becomes flat after passing stool.

Also, after sitting upright in a chair for 30-40 minutes, again hernia tends to become flat and re-emerges after some time.

I am continuing with Calc Phos 6x; today I shall buy alpha alpha Q and start taking it at night as advised by you.

dee37 last decade
Excellent progress. Start Alfa Alfa and then post further progress.
srisri last decade
Take high fiber diet and eat lot of fruits.
srisri last decade
There is no change to my last report. I am taking both the remedies regularly as advised by you.

dee37 last decade
I have been diagnosed with Direct Inguinal Hernia ( Rt. side )and has been asked for surgery.
I may mention that I have undergone this surgery once in 1978.
Most of the times I feel pain under groin while sitting..... walking.... climbing stairs.
I am 55, 75 KG, 5'6' and Diabetic too FBS 235 , PPS 315
Can anybody help me at this stage to avoid surgery as I may not be able to afford surgery (Financially).

Please take three doses of Staphysagria 1M as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thanks Mr.Kadwa for the response
Kindly clarify
Morning dose means empty stomach or after B'fast......
and secondly
when evening dose is to be taken! is it before or after dinner.....
and lastly ...
U mean only 3 doses initially and no further dose for next 15 Days.....

Harminder58 last decade
Empty stomach or not doesn't matter. You should not eat anything 30 minutes before as well as after. So may be taken empty stomach or after breakfast.

You should take only 3 doses and then no further for 15 days.
