My friend vomits when she eats and has a lot of pain on her stomach. she experience a burning sensation in her throat after she has eaten and stays nauseous. The doctor has put her on a second round of antibiotics. He told her not to eat after 18h at night. Why did the first round of antibiotics not cure the infection? You think that she might need an operation?

If it is an infection then the antibiotics may not have been strong enough. Now a hernia is not an infection, it needs a surgery to be fixed. So maybe she has these two confused. If it continues then I would go to the hospital, and get revaluated.

Thank you 911Ricki. I was hoping that this would not be that serious and that an operation would not be needed. I will talk to her today.

Lets hope it's nothing serious, and can be cleared up. There are so many different infections, and disorders that it is hard to say. A coworker of mine had to have surgery and took her 6 months to recover.

hi dee no antibotic is going to cure a hole in the w all of your abdomen called a hernia. okay she had an infection and got antibiotics and possibly needs more but i am going to have to have surgery and so is she eventually as a hole will not close with meds it has to be stitched up surgically.

Thank you Hatley. I will see her today and have a chat. She needs to go work soon and an operation is going to complicate things for her, but health is important, so she will have to decide. Thanx again.

Dear dee777....The common symptoms of hernias include soft swelling or bulge under the skin. But the strangest part is that most of these hernias do not cause any painful symptoms.But however,if the area around the hernia is soft then sometimes you may feel pain or irritation due to sharp twinges!Infection may be caused due to some other reason.I dont think it has a relation to hernia.
