Patient Comments: Hernia - Causes

Do you know what caused your hernia?

Comment from: lulu, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: June 04

I had an emergency C-section 54 years ago, then another C-section, and then another incision from umbilicus to groin for a perforated colon and sepsis. Now I have had four protruding hernias in lower groin area that protrude, gurgle and occasionally enlarge a protruding stomach which resists diet and exercise. I am 5"4, 150 lbs. Scheduled once to have the mesh implant to hold these portions of the stomach in place and lift the urethra but not confident of the success of these procedure.

I have not been diagnosed with hernia yet but it makes sense. I had pneumonia and coughed it out. I also have a problem when I lie down. I do not have spasms but it hurts.
