    ouch. Hubby just had his repaired in April. He had a piece of mesh put in his stomach where the hernia was. His was a day procedure too. He found he had to sleep almost sitting up when it was really painful. Also put a pillow against your belly button when you cough or sneeze it will help with the pain from that too

    My DD1 has one, and has had it since birth. I was told to leave it unless it gives her issues.
    Apparently it can be removed as a simple surgical procedure.

    Please next time it is bad get your but to the hospital don't stuff around. Mine got bad at 15 weeks and they put me on list to operate 22 to operate 28 weeks. At 19 weeks it strangled my bowel. Dh was away. I went to hospital at 4 pm at 7 pm they told me if they didn't operate before the morning both my unborn baby and myself would be dead. They operated at 2am. All went well and now my bub is a healthy 1 yr old.

    Having it done when it is not a emergency is so much safer for you and bub. Please go see Dr your today.


    Seriously please go.


    Happy to answer any questions you have

    Oh if you get it done before your pregnant it is a easy little cut surgery. My ds is getting it done next year when he is next 2yrs old. When your pregnant it is a huge cut and 1000 times harder.

    My gp has sent through a referral to the local hospital she said it could take up to 2 years to see a specialist and another 12 months after that to have the op! It hasn't played up since then thank god!

    Yes that is about right. If you have a bad attack and go into the hospital that bumps you up the list. Treat every bad attack, you know where you are double over unable to move for the pain as emergency because it is.
