I have an incisional hernia in my abdomen.   I've already had several repaired.    Is there anything that i can do to keep it from strangulating?

Recurrent hernia: Recurrent incisonal hernias are a challenge. Risks for re-recurrence are related to overall health. Smokers and overweight patients have the highest risk of recurrence.
