Umbilical hernia sex: Ask your surgeon. Most will say keep it cool for a couple of weeks but please double check with the doctor. Some doctors are very funny about postoperative instructions. There is an on call person at all times that should be able to help. Good luck and good health!

Yes but: You may need to be gentle. Most importantly, if it is strangulated or the contents are pulsing, get it fixed immediately.
