Post colon resection abdominal hernia
I had a sigmoid colon resection 10 months ago and now have an abdominal hernia at the incision site. It is making the area around my naval protrude two inches. I went to my colon surgeon and he said he would repair it with mesh laparoscopically when I was ready. He warned of the hernia possibilities of waiting too long. I had three surgeries last in the past year. How urgent is repairing a hernia with the possibility of intestines continuing to protrude through the hernia opening? Should I have my colon do surgeon do the repair or go to a general surgeon who specializes in hernia repair?
