|My husband had laparoscopic Para esophageal hernia repair. Surgeon cut artery to liver and did not notify patient and did not do any pro active treatment for the atrophy of lobe of liver.
Patient developed serious abdominal abscess with communication between colon and bilary tube. Infection was coming from atrophy of liver, but surgeon never told anyone and kept saying it was just a virus or maybe normal surgical fluid buildup. After nearly 4 months after surgery with weeks of antibiotics, the abscess was gone. However, the hernia repair has broken down and the stomach is again going through the hernia in the diaphram. Patient is 79 years old and active.
What should be done following the surgery if an artery has been cut to the liver and the live will atrophy? Should antibiotics or some procedure be done in a proactive way to prevent this massive abscess? Also, would the abscess compromise the hernia repair making it break down?
Thank you for your information.

It is sad that your husband has landed in some post.operative complications. Liver is a very versatile organ and it has tremendous regeneration capacity. I feel once the abcess is treated by drainage/ antibiotics, it will regenerate and your husband will become normal. He may have to undergo repair of paraumbilical hernia again.
