Can umbilical hernia cause nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, weightloss, strained bowel movemnt (even with loose stools)? Surgeon app. End of month.

Probably not all: Probably not all of those symptoms are related to an umbilical hernia. Most umbilical hernias are small and do not cause that much discomfort, naseua, fatigue, weight loss, etc. If it is really large, it can start having some of those symptoms. But in general, I doubt the unbilical hernia is causing all those symptoms. Good luck at the appt. ...Read more
