    Thanks everyone, going to go get a referral today so I can at least discuss further with a surgeon. Doctor Google suggests they can rejoin any abdominal muscle separation whilst they're fixing the hernia, that would be nice!

    Mines was a emergency so done in the public system.
    Ds3 the bub that I was pregnant with was born with one. The private surgeon wanted to do at 2 and 1/2 years. We swapped to public list at 2 years old and we are on the wait list. It is still the same Dr that overseas the public that we saw privately. They said it should be in the next 6 months. He has just turned 3

    Oh my goodness, I would so love to get those muscles stitched together at the same time. Please keep us posted 😊. I am going to ask my gp to get the ball rolling next visit.

    I have a booking for a consult with a general surgeon on Thursday (extra quick as my parents know one, lucky!), I'll let you know how I go for sure.

    I saw the surgeon this morning and he's booked me in for surgery this coming Wednesday!!

    He said the hernia was not reducible, in his opinion, and so it was absolutely necessary to get it done soon, even though it was only fat and not bowel that was protruding at this point of time.

    Apparently it is a paraumbilical and not an umbilical hernia.

    That escalated quickly!!!

    I just saw this and I'm so glad it's being sorted so quickly.
    My paraumbilical hernia (which I didn't know I had!) became incarcerated and I ended up with a perforated bowel, peritonitis and an emergency bowel resection. Was nasty!

    Oh wow that does sound nasty, poor thing!

    I didn't realise how many hernia horror stories there were out there! So I'm also glad it's getting sorted quickly!
