When to seek help

Your child should see a doctor if he or she has a swelling or bulge over the groin area, is vomiting and has pain or fever.

An operation is needed to release the loops of bowel that are stuck, before damage can occur. During the operation, the child is given anaesthesia and after the loops of bowel are placed back into the abdominal cavity, the muscles are stitched together to prevent recurrence. Sometimes, a piece of meshed material is used to strengthen the muscles.
