Umbilical Hernia Stomach Pain
I had umbilical hernia repair about 5 years ago. Since I've had worrsoning stomach pains and bowel issues. No one seems to want to investigate.?
Chronic constipation: A bowel regimen may help. The goal is two soft bowel movements daily. Water and juices up to 1.5 liters daily, fiber tablets, laxatives (milk of magnesium or miralax), stool softeners, probiotics, and walking are all non-prescription things you can use for your bowel regimen. If you have fever or vomiting, or if your symptoms persist with your bowels regulated, then get evaluated.See 1 more doctor answer
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 ...Read more
Can you have stomach fat or lipo done at the time of hernia repair surgeries? Port site and incisional umbilical hernia?
Bad Idea: Incisional hernia repair is almost-always done with mesh. Mesh infections can be devastating complications. Increasing the incisions in the abdominal wall by liposuction could increase the risk of mesh infection. In contrast, an andominoplasty ("tummy tuck") can sometimes be combined with hernia repair.See 4 more doctor answers
Two weeks after my umbilical hernia repair my stomach seems a bit high can I wear a belly band since I can't do any exercise right now.
Bad idea: "belly bands" are a bad idea in general, and especially after surgery. Nobody should use them!See 1 more doctor answer
Control the hernia: You can do situps if you can hold your hernia in while you strain. Don't do traditional situps but modified version to reduce strain. Also an option is to have the hernia repaired, wait a few weeks for healing - and then do whatever you want! :)
I have a umbilical hernia. Last night after laying on stomach when I awoke my hernia had moved and belly button was sunk in. What should I do?
You're good: Nothing. You just reduced the protruding tissue back underneath the hernia (hole) in the muscle. It will return, especially if you do heavy work or strain/cough. if it protrudes and is hard and painful, you'll need immediate attention. The elective repair is quick, outpatient, and is done with a little sedation and local anesthesia. I recommend a surgical opinion. Good luck.See 2 more doctor answers

What should I do to repair my para-umbilical hernia itself naturally, and what time it requires to repair 2 to 3 CM hole in internal abdomen wall?
SurgeryOnlyOption: Umbilical hernias may be easily repaired under general anesthesia as an out-patient. Depending on the size of the hernia and other patient-factors, we often advise using mesh to close the hole (like patching a tire). I advise hernia repair if it is causing symptoms that are interfering with one's quality of life, or if the hole is so large that there is the potential for intestine to get stuck.

Small reducible umbilical hernia containing omentum 8 x 7 mm. Do l need this repaired. I have abdominal pain all the time.?
Lump in belly button. Slight abdominal pain around the area. Umbilical hernia? I have doctors appointment in about 24 hours. Safe to wait until then?
Possible and Yes: It is possible that this is an umbilical hernia. If you can easily reduce it, meaning easily push it back in, then you can safely wait until you see your doctor tomorrow. If the pain worsens, or becomes constant, that may represent an estrangulated hernia, which is not reducible, and would require more immediate attention.
20 years old female I was told I have a fat contaning umblical hernia. I do get bowel problems and stomach pain but no one told me the hernia is cause?
Small fat containg umbilcal hernia. Can it be the reason for my stomach pain its real moderate with nausea two days hurts. Went to ER no help?
Umb hermia: It can be cause of your pain or not. Umbilical hernias can hurt cause either fat or bowel can get stuck and cause swelling of the tissue due to blood supply being affected. With that said the pain you are having may have nothing to do with your umbilical hernia. You need a better evaluation by your doctor or emegency room. Like an x-ray or ct-scan.See 2 more doctor answers
Umbilical hernia 5 years ago. Since repair constant abdominal pain at repair site. Reoccurring low grade fever. How do I no if mesh is infected? Neg ct
Need more info: Mesh infections typically present with skin changes at the site of repair. If the overlying wound is perfectly healed, it's unlikely. Ct scans can sometimes detect fluid around the mesh which would suggest infection. Most mesh infections are with staph epidermidis which is a slow-indolent bacteria. I am assuming the neg ct didn't show a recurrence which could account for the pain you have.See 2 more doctor answers
58 year-old man had an umbilical hernia mesh repair 14 years ago, removed 6 years ago due to infection, and was repaired with a flap, but is now.....?
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.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: May not want to do sit-ups or strain abdominal s. Many people have a small defect-umbilical for life with no symptoms or problems. If it gets bigger, tender, it may need repair.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 2 more doctor answers
