I have been diagnosed with an umbilical hernia and I want to know what symptoms I should monitor and if/when I should see a doctor for surgery. Thanks?

In brief: Umbilical swelling

that will not resolve, is discolored, is enlarging or hard.
is a good time to revisit your physician.

Always best to see a doctor NW so you have a documented medical record as to the date on onset of this issue.
