Risk factors in developing a hernia
- coughing or sneezing
- straining on the toilet (for example, if you have constipation)
- pregnancy (in later age or a difficult delivery)
- lifting heavy objects (for example, weight training)
- being overweight
If you develop a hernia, you may need surgery to put the part of the abdomen that's out of place back where it belongs, and to repair and strengthen your abdominal wall.
Hernia repair surgery
The surgery can be either keyhole or open surgery depending on your specific case. Keyhole surgery involves making a few small incisions and using a telescopic camera to direct the operation.
Recovery time is usually two to three weeks.
