Ventral hernia, bulges on eating, pain reduces on massaging, feeling of bowel movement. Treatment?

I have a ventral hernia . I ve had it for several years, it has gotten larger. When I eat, the hernia bulges out and I have pain, I massage the hernia. Sometimes it makes it feel better, if not I feel that I have to have a bowel movement . If I do the pain subsides. I intend to have surgery. I would appreciate your opinion. Thank You

Yes you have to go for surgery, Let me know dear if you have to strain while passing urine or do you have long standing cough. Actually I am asking you all these questions to find out the cause of hernia because first the cause of hernia has to be found out and treated. Thereafter hernia should be treated, so without treating the root cause there can be recurrence even after operation................tc care
