When you have a hernia repaired does it hurt much at the spot where it was fixed or just where they cut you? I am having one fixed when I have my c-section so the incision is no where near where the hernia. I am fine with the c-section since it is down low, but I was wondering if I will be sore above my bellybutton where the hernia is actually located. I am going to breastfeed again and was wondering if I was going to have much pain since that is where you hold the baby across you. I meant will it hurt where you get cut (which would be good) or where the hernia is (which would be harder). I will not be taking any pain meds. I did not need them after my first c-section and that is major abdominal surgery because I was fine. I was just wanted a heads up if that little spot where the hernia actually is will hurt. Not the incision because I expect that to and that is no where near the hernia anyway.
