Hello,

The reason underlying hernia is the weakening of the abdominal wall, due to a birth defect, weight lifting and obesity. Have you had surgery before? Sometimes hernia is formed in the surgical wound after surgery. Anyway, I agree with your doctor the surgery is the only solution to this problem, as it may become life threatening if not treated.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
