‘LPBW’ Jeremy Roloff Undergoes Inguinal Hernia Surgery – Is It Serious?

News, Reality TV, TLC Shows

LPBW alum, Jeremy Roloff took to his Instagram this weekend and told fans he underwent Inguinal hernia surgery. He also said that unlike his brother Zach, it’s the first time he had an operation like this. Fans know that Zach suffers from dwarfism and they sometimes need corrective surgery. TV Shows Ace reported earlier this year, “Due to his condition, dwarfism, he has dealt with several health problems in the past.” Now, Jeremy also told his fans he neglected his health and intends taking it more seriously in the future.

LPBW alum Jeremy Roloff ignored his hernia problem for a while

On his Instagram, Jeremy explained what happened with his hernia. he wrote, “Yesterday I had my first surgery. Inguinal hernia surgery. I’ve had a hernia for the past few years, but thought I could live with it in order to avoid surgery, so I ignored it.” Well, many people, hope things will just go away, so he’s not alone. But, he added, “over the last several months I’ve been having some increasing health concerns, specifically severe lower back pain and chronic shoulder pain. I’ve come to realize that I’ve been subconsciously protecting my hernia with poor posture and lack of core strength.”

Like others who experience hernia pain, Jeremy stopped doing too much “physical exercise.” But, that just made things worse “because of muscle loss which has me walking weird as well. I’ve been ignoring my health and it all came to a head when just a few days ago I threw out my back after sneezing.” So having learned his lesson, the LPBW alum vows, “I’m considering this a turn in my health journey. I have a goal to be in the best shape of my life by 32. Health is something that needs continual attention or else it unnoticeably fades – like most things in life. Time to put some attention back on personal health!”

How serious is an Inguinal hernia?

The Mayo Clinic Org notes that Inguinal hernias seem relatively common. On their website, they say that sometimes people feel the hernia which protrudes through the abdominal wall. Sometimes, they can gently push it back, and the problem goes away. but, like Jeremy, if it gets neglected, it can become a lot worse. Complications might arise, and these include “Nausea, vomiting or both, fever, sudden pain that quickly intensifies, a hernia bulge that turns red, purple or dark, and the inability to move your bowels or pass gas.”

If those symptoms appear you could suffer from a “strangulated hernia.” They add, “An incarcerated hernia can cut off blood flow to part of your intestine. Strangulation can lead to the death of the affected bowel tissue. A strangulated hernia is life-threatening and requires immediate surgery.” Well, it looks like LPBW star Jeremy didn’t get that far advanced, but if he left it much longer, it could have been worse.

Yesterday I had my first surgery. Inguinal hernia surgery. I’ve had a hernia for the past few years, but thought I could live with it in order to avoid surgery, so I ignored it. However, over the last several months I’ve been having some increasing health concerns, specifically severe lower back pain and chronic shoulder pain. I’ve come to realize that I’ve been subconsciously protecting my hernia with poor posture and lack of core strength. I’ve pretty much eliminated all physical exercise too which has increased the problem because of muscle loss which has me walking weird as well. I’ve been ignoring my health and it all came to a head when just a few days ago I threw out my back after sneezing. Embarrassing, right? 😂😬. All said, I’m considering this a turn in my health journey. I have a goal to be in the best shape of my life by 32. Health is something that needs continual attention or else it unnoticeably fades – like most things in life. Time to put some attention back on personal health!
