Clearly you have a susceptibility to a facia weakness (a hernia) which your doctor has said she reduced. Hernias don't just get better, time and strain cause them to become worse, and unless you want to go around with a truss I recommend seeing a surgeon to have the problem fixed properly. They have some great techniques these days.
