In brief: Depends on

Location and size of hernia.
In general, risks of surgery are infection, hemorrhage, and damage to adjacent organs. Your surgeon will weigh the risk of surgery versus risk of no surgery and make a recommendation. If it is an inguinal hernia repair, it is a common operation with very low risk of complications, in general.
