and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
No, hernia will not affect these organs unless these are inside the hernia and this is rare. However, surgery is definitely recommened since some serious complciations may develop in untreated hernia such as incarceration and strangulation.
Wish you good health. Regards
