If I had a hernia fixed as a child can it reappear in the same spot as an adult?

In brief: Recurrent Hernia
Recurrent hernias may occur in ~2-5% of cases following initial hernia repair.
Operative repair is usually very straightforward, typically requiring mesh placement, depending on the location/type of hernia and patient-factors.
