Heart pounding. Spleen removed, hernia surgery. Will I be okay?

i've had hernia surgery repair after I had my spleen removed 2 years ago. For about a week I've been feeling a heartbeat to the right of my belly button. It doesn't hurt just annoying. Could this be the hernia has come undone or could this be something to do with the aorta. I feel the pulse if i'm standing, sitting or even laying down. It's not all the time, but tonight i've felt it a lot while sitting here. I didn't know if I needed to see a doctor.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
This may not have anything to do with hernia or spleen
It may be an aneurysm - expansile pulsation / or transmitted pulsation from normal aorta.
You should of course see a doctor / get examined / and investigated if necessary..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
