Hernia occurs due to muscle weakness.  Most of the time,  weakness will present on both sides. If u r operated for rt side hernia and experience pain on left side , it is better to rule out left side hernia , may be just started.  Do  scan and confirm.

Hello there...... If your cough has a specific cause, treating this may help.For example:asthma can be treated with inhaled steroids to reduce inflammation in your airways...allergies can be treated by avoiding things you're allergic to and taking antihistamines to dampen down your allergic reactions...bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics....
