In brief: Parastomal hernia

Recovery from hernia repair is variable based upon many factors such as hernia size, prior operative details, and type of surgery performed.
If possible, the best treatment is to reverse the stoma and repair the hernia site. If the stoma is permanent, a mesh is often utilized. If possible, a laparoscopic repair offers many benefits over open repair. You need to discuss this with a surgeon.
