My daughter is having hernia surgery in a few weeks.

My daughter is having hernia surgery in a few weeks. She is planning an all day bus trip ( 7 hours) then touring NYC then the return trip the same day. This trip is scheduled for a week later. I'm concerned it may be too much for her so soon. I'm concerned about a possible blood clot or her stitches pulling or tearing. Am I right yo be concerned? She is 36.

My 22 year old daughter just called me from college and said she has a bellybutton hernia. The connection was bad so I didn t get much info from her. Can she wait 6-8 weeks until school is out for surgery? What does this all entail? What kind of Dr/Specialist does the procedure? Thank you.

Hi I was diagnosed with an umbilical hernia and have to have surgery. Do I have to have it repaired? I had one almost 4 years ago. No mesh was used the doctor stitched it closed. I can go weeks with no pain but when it hits me the pain is unbearable. I m afraid to go through the surgery again.
