Surgery or wait/see: Watchful waiting can be an option for small umbilical hernias, where it's very unlikely for bowel to enter & get stuck (incarcerated).

However, only option for hernias of any sort is surgical repair to prevent painful incarceration & strangulation of bowel. Best to go see surgeon for his/her opinion. ...Read more

Surgery if pain:
If the inguinal (groin) hernias and umbilical hernia are causing you discomfort, they should be fixed. A hernia is a bulge of tissue through a defect.
A hiatal hernia is where part of the stomach goes up past the diaphragm into the lower chest. There are different types. A surgeon would have to evaluate this to see if surgery is needed. He or she may also do an endoscopy (egd). ...Read more
May need surgery: If the hernia is getting bigger, is causing pain, or contains intestines (a surgeon could determine this), then you should see a general surgeon to have it repaired. If the hernia is not causing you discomfort, then you may not need surgery. It is a good idea to have a general surgeon look at it and discuss open (single larger incision) or laparoscopic (multiple smaller incisions) repair. ...Read more
Examination: A physical examination by your doctor is usually sufficient. There may be a swelling or soft bulge located near the umbilicus, and would protrude more if you do straining or heavy lifting. ...Read more
Painful or large:
the goal of repairing an umbilical hernia is to take away the pain and the bulge, and also to prevent incarceration and strangulation of intestines within the hernia.
The hernia should be fixed if it is painful, large, produces a sizeable bulge, or if it contains intestines. The most common reason for fixing it is pain. ...Read more
See below: Incarcerated hernia means it is not reducible (unable to push it back). Strangulation happens when blood supply to herniated organs is cut off. It is a very serious problem and can lead to gangrene within hours (needs emergent surgical intervention). When a hernia is strangulated the pain increases and gets worse over time. At late stages there might be redness of the skin overlying the hernia. ...Read more
Umb. Hernia repair:
An umbilical hernia repair is fairly simple. It can be done open (single small incision) or laparoscopically (with multiple small incisions, long instruments, and a video camera).
A sterile, synthetic mesh is almost always placed, and the fascia (thick tissue) is closed over the mesh. This helps to prevent the hernia from coming back (recurring). ...Read more
Umbilical hernia: This is a hole in the abdominal wall at the belly button, the location of the umbilical cord during fetal development. It usually closes by itself as it fills with scar tissue. Infants with a hernia here usually resolve by age 4-5. Adults may develop a hole here for unknown reasons, and will see a lump under the skin ("outie") where intra-abdominal contents have passed through the hole. ...Read more
Usually easy: It depends on how big the hernia is and if you have had many previous abdominal surgeries. The surgeon can fix the hernia open (single incision) or laparoscopically (multiple small incisions). The surgery is usually very straightforward. Most patients go home the same day. The surgery is very common. ...Read more
Probably not: The colon is actually not attached to the front abdominal wall and hernia is a result of a defect in the wall through which part of your colon/small intestine can get squeezed in resulting in the bulge--the hernia. Colon prep cleans out your colon and colonoscopy is just a scope being threaded into the colon to take a look. This should not make the hernia worse. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Light: Eat light, non-greasy foods after any surgery until the effects of anesthesia wear off. 24-72 hours. If you are taking narcotics for pain you will want to continue this with increased fiber and fluids to avoid constipation. Once off of the pain mess you may resume your normal healthy diet. ...Read more
Umbilical hernia: If the hernia is 2cm or less, surgery is usually quick, 20-30 minutes and doesn't require mesh. If larger, it may require mesh placement. This can be done as an open or laparoscopic operation. I perform most of my hernia repairs laparoscopically but that's a matter of preference. Recovery is a few days. No strenuous activity for 6 weeks. Pretty simple procedure. ...Read more
Hernia activity: Activities following hernia repair should be based on comfort. Any activity causing pain should be avoided. I recommend patients avoid strenuous activities for about six weeks, although every patient is differrent in the amount of activity that they would consider strenuous. ...Read more
Short: Most umbilical hernia repairs are done outpatient and require a very short recovery. If you do a lot of liftinig, bending and stooping and straining your time for recovery may be longer (~2-4 weeks). If you have a less strenuous vocation, then perhaps less than a week to up to 2 weeks. It will depend on your size, condition, health and complications and your doctor's opinion. ...Read more
