"I'm pregnant, and I have a small hernia that doesn't hurt. I've talked with my doctor about it, and she said I could have surgery as long as I have an epidural and not general anesthesia. But she said it may be best to wait until I'm done having kids. There's a risk I could get another hernia when I get pregnant again. So as long as my hernia doesn't get worse, I'll wait."

Pediatric Surgery - Umbilical Hernia

For children, complications of an umbilical hernia are rare. Complications can occur when the protruding abdominal tissue becomes trapped (incarcerated) and can no longer be pushed back into the abdominal cavity. This reduces the blood supply to the section of trapped intestine and can lead to umbilical pain and tissue damage. If the trapped portion of intestine is completely cut off from the blood supply (strangulated hernia), tissue death (gangrene) may occur. Infection may spread throughout the abdominal cavity, causing a life-threatening situation.

The reason so many femoral hernias come to light as emergencies is probably that the femoral canal, through which the hernia appears, is narrow with most of its entrance (the femoral ring) rigid and unyielding.

A hernia is a bulge that results when an organ or some tissue is out of place. Hernias can happen in the groin, the abdomen, and the diaphragm. Sometimes a hernia is apparent at birth, but other times a hernia might develop in the first few months after a baby is born -- or even later in childhood or adulthood.

If your child has pain, a swollen belly, or other signs that a part of the intestine is trapped in the hernia ( incarcerated hernia ), surgery will be needed right away. This problem is very rare.

In children, many umbilical hernias close on their own by age 6 or 7, though some take longer to heal. To prevent complications, umbilical hernias that don't disappear by age 9 or those that appear during adulthood may need surgical repair.

"I'm a nurse, and sometimes I have to lift patients and other heavy things. One day, after helping a patient transfer into a wheelchair, I felt something weird in my abdomen. Later, I noticed a bulge in my belly button. My doctor said it may have happened because I've gained quite a bit of weight lately. I've decided to go ahead and have it fixed since it's kind of painful and it could be a problem with my work."

Your hernia may get worse, but it may not. Over time, hernias tend to get bigger as the muscle wall of the belly gets weaker and more tissue bulges through. But some small, painless hernias never need repair.

An uncomplicated umbilical hernia is associated with a soft swelling in the umbilical area. This swelling may be variable in size and may come and go. Otherwise, the dog will appear health.
