A hiatal hernia occurs when part of the stomach goes up into the lower chest. Your symptoms could be due to reflux (gerd). You should see a surgeon, and he or she may perform an upper endoscopy (egd), depending on your symptoms. ...Read more

If i don't fix an umbilical hernia, how likely are the chances i will have a strangulated bowel? (i want to know how rare it is).

Incarceration or strangulation (very serious, can damage intestines) occur in about 1-10% of patients with an umbilical hernia during their lifetime. The surgery is fairly easy and simple. Strangulation is more likely if the fascia defect is small (less than 4 cm). If it causes pain, it should definitely be fixed promptly. ...Read more
