Dr. Robert Kneece
Specializes in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics
Talk to surgeon: I do not have enough info to know what is causing the pain,as how bad,where the pain is and was it an umbilical hernia repair or inguinal hernia repair.So best to ask the surgeon and describe the symptoms,whether the pain is getting better and the bowel pattern,etc.
