A hernia to be: you did some damage to the muscle and ligament in the area of the hernia repair most likely you did not have a screen 30 years ago when you hernia was repaired
you are having a hernia in the making that mean you are trying to break the old repair
normal ultrasound mean nothing for a hernia
most likely you will start noticing a bulge next
see a doctor
