In brief: Depends

Depends on patient factors such as connective tissue disorders, steroid use and obesity among other things.
Also depends on the amount of strenuous activity and the location and size of the hernia. The technique of repair is also critical, along with the experience if the surgeon. In general, you should be able to expect a 90% or greater chance of success. Hope this helps!
