Lumbar Hernia

Does anyone have any experience with this? I am pretty sure I have one, but I want to not get jerked around at the doc. I have been dealing with it for the last year or so, but I am over it.

Advice?

TIA!

As someone who has had 10 Back surgery's the last one was last Feb 2020 I took this info from my heal plan


Back pain is such a ubiquitous symptom it can be grueling to pinpoint the source. Potential conditions range from a mild sprain to a literal ripping of the tissue (hernia). Organs like the kidneys, gall bladder, and stomach can also permeate pain to the back and need to be plugged into the equation.

A specialist in backs and hernia should be on your list if you find yourself with considerable and chronic back pain. A hernia is nothing to mess with, so please educate yourself with this article here.

A Lumbar Hernia Anatomy Lesson
Before we can discuss the complexity of this kind of hernia, it is helpful to outline the names and functions of the body parts involved. For starters, you need to recognize where the superior lumbar triangle is on the body. Lumbar refers to muscles in the lower back. The lumbar triangle is nestled into the abdominal muscles near the obliques and attached to the 12th rib.

What is an Incisional Hernia, What it Feels like? Symptoms, Causes, Treatment

In lumbar hernia anatomy, this is the section that can herniate, collapse, and sometimes obstruct the bowels. It is deep set in the body, causing extra challenges in treatment options and is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions. The rarity of a ruptured hernia compounds the diagnosis problem and increases morbidity rates. It is frequently diagnosed incorrectly as muscle strain, lipoma, and fibroma.

Lumbar Hernia Symptoms
The superior lumbar hernia, also known as a flank hernia or Grynfeltt-Lesshaft hernia, is a result of weakness in the posterolateral abdominal wall. These are the muscles that run along the side and the back of the abdomen. Lumbar hernia symptoms include:


A bulge on the back or side of the torso
Back pain
Stomach pain
Pain with coughing, breathing, or sudden movements
Muscle atrophy or weakness is the underlying cause of a lumbar triangle hernia. You are more likely to develop the condition in older age ranges, high risk is 50 to 70, and men are afflicted more often. Sedentary lifestyles and obesity exacerbate the hazards

KC,

I have operated on a couple of these in my career. They are pretty rare, but the diagnosis is not normally difficult to establish. A CT scan will make the diagnosis, if a hernia in the lumbar triangle is present.

Good luck!
Danny
