What are the risks of having surgery?

Femoral hernia repair has very few risks, however 1% of femoral hernia cases reported a return of their hernia after the operation. Complications of femoral hernia repair are extremely rare, however they can include the development of a lump under the incision site, difficulty passing urine, narrowing of the femoral vein, injury of the bowel, weakness (temporarily) of the leg, and damage to nerves which can lead to pain or numbness in the groin area.
