Hi..Windy.., umbilical hernia is caused due to weakness of anterior abdominal wall.., after first surgery, you should have given rest to body, any activity like coughing, lifting weight, any activity which causes increased abdominal pressure will lead to recurrent hernia,.. hence after this surgery, avoid such activities..

Take care..
