Hi. Thanks for your query and an elucidate history. Please forgive the medical fraternity and me to say that there is no other cure for hernia other than surgery. People have tried so many things but have not have cure at the same time other therapies have caused more complications. So the best way is Surgery. You may please discuss with your Surgeon about open verses laparoscopic approach amd go for the one whichever you like. Hernia belt is banned in many countries for the complications it had created . Stop using it.
