Hello, my name is Nichole and I was hoping to get information on what I should do. You see, back in 2011 I had surgery due to an umbilical hernia after having my first baby (emergency C-section 2010). The doctor put a mesh in BUT every day over the years my stomach still looks as if I m pregnant. It s hard and won t go down. I was wondering after a mesh is put in, is it still possible that the hernia came back? I go through pain everyday. I feel a bit uncomfortable going into see the same doctor who did it because the whole atmosphere of the place is a little unsettling. What should I do?

Hi, thanks for your time..... My boyfriend has an umbilical hernia that occasionally becomes exacerbated with strenuous activity. He does not have insurance and refuses to have this looked at or treated. Can this be life threatening? Is there anything I may be able to do at home to ease the discomfort when it does exacerbate?
