Hi Michele Getty
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
can be repaired by surgery.there are very advanced methods of surgery for hernia , which don't involve much patient morbidity.depending on the time of surgery in the area of hernia you may need general anesthesia
for the procedure to be done .however This doesn't need to be worried about.I advise you to visit your surgeon and get examined if you really need surgery to be done.avoid lifting heavy objects and putting strain on your abs pain to reduce the pain.
Hope this information helps you.
