In brief: Get an operation
A hernia repair is the only way to make this better. This is done by a surgeon.
Although you could wait and see, the hernia definitely won't get any better, and will probably get worse. Today we do hernias laparoscopically, which get you back to work faster and hurt much less. You should look for a surgeon who repairs hernias this way.
