When someone continously has abdominal hernias, on side and by belly button, doc said just prone, would they benefit from muscles tighten n tuck?

In brief: Maybe

You list conditions of Hodgkin's disease, radiation and chemo and prior hernia repairs.
All these add up to a higher risk of recurrence of the hernia. Muscle "tighten and tuck" won't decrease that recurrence rate.
