Unlikely: It is unlikely the hernia is causing constipation. If there is a hernia, and there is a question, he should have an evaluation by a general surgeon. Many diets for constipation, but the first step is to make sure he is well hydrated - 8 glasses of water per day. Hope this helps! ...Read more
