  • Hi I was wondering how this mesh holds up during pregnancy? I’m having this surgery in a month and am worried about the effect of the mesh if I decide to have children in the future.

  • Great video and so cool! This reminds me how my mom always said when she gave birth to my brother, he was so big “he tore my belly button and the doctors had to stitch it back together”. I will now have to #1 ask my mom to clarify the actual injury/procedure and #2 uphold my duty as a big sister and remind my brother he was a massive baby and The only reason my parents stopped having kids (he wasnt the only reason or even the main reason. he was also a very cute fat baby but you didnt hear that from me) ��

  • Would never recommend mesh run as fast as you can I had one put into me and I am suffering none stop I am now going to remove it. All I can say is Mesh don’t belong in a body!

  • Would prolotherapy or prp therapy help healing and strengthening of the umbilical hernia after surgery? I really don’t want to have a mesh installed but I’m looking forward to return to deadlifting and squatting

  • I had the hernia surgery in 2013 and they put mesh in and it eroison through out my body in 2017 I was in the hospital for 6 months and still have problem with my stomach it still hurts terrible

  • Hello sir…my umbilical hernia got detected 2 years back after I gave birth to my baby… the bulge is very small inside naval…but lots of gas formation and some times pain… is laparoscopy necessary or can it get well with proper diet and yoga

  • not sure I like this flowerette type patch. how does the dr. know if the patch is centered?
    the c-qur patch seems better. this looks like old technology.
    im needing surgery, but dr.’s are arrogant and just tell me he “knows what he is doing”. I feel I want the best surgery I can get. and dr. should explain everything and answer all questions.

  • For someone aged 28, who has done sports my whole life and had never before had issues with it. im roid free(I dont even compete or plan on competing), getting symptoms of a umbilical hernia has been uncomfortable. and the notion fo getting surgery for it to start protruding again is terrifying.
    How likely am I, after an umbilical hernia surgery of training like normal eventually?(it-s very minor but uncomfortable, nothing eye catching)

  • Sir please reply please sir.
    I am a women and my age is 48years I have umbilical hernia and the lump is huge I have bp,sugar should I do the surgery?
    Please reply sir.

  • Sir i fell light pain right beneath my umblica and after 2 day yellow foul smelly liquid comes and the pain is gone this is happening around in period of six months once what could be the cause

  • Res sir, My wife have the complaint of unsullied herniea. Yesterday day only doctors took scan and they told Operataion is your wish. Its size is 2cm near the naval already did family planning Operataion did in the same place. I am afraid for operation. Any side effects will come in future. Plz suggest a helpfully solution

  • I just had the robotic assisted umbilical hernia repair w/mesh 2 days ago. Mine turned out to be 15 x 20 cm, where initially they thought it was small per CT. I looked like an 8mo pregnant woman, naval stretched to the size ofa silver dollar, redness w/bubbling tissue behind it. The pain felt extremely deep, like a pitchfork raking behind my naval. Most pain was with activity, or by touch directly on it. Laying down alleviated it. Post op pain is better today than yesterday.. it feels like a fist around the muscles where the incisions are. This surgery has given me hope I’ll look & feel like a normal person again.

  • That needle just messed me up. Her’s looks like mine, just a little bigger. I’m going in today to have it done. I’m SO afraid����. But is she awake����. I hope she’s asleep.

  • just had it done this week but went under general anaesthetic still a bit sore and feel a bit sick but getting there every day it do get easy but well worth haveing done got all the pain meds and everything at the ready which have helped no end.

  • What if you have a hernia umbilical and you have low platelets my GI doesn’t want to do surgery but it’s large what do you suggest?

  • I need this done mine is getting worse as years go to by….wondering though can it be just sewn up so there is NO belly button? LOL maybe I am wierd but I think it would be too cool to have no belly button…just a lint collector anyway lol

  • My daughter has to have this surgery Thursday. An I’m scared to death. Because I just lost my 2week old baby… My nerves is f***ed up

  • I didn’t see any mesh being placed so why can’t this be done all the the time with out a mesh since I hear all these negative things about the mesh? I need it done to me but I’m scared because of all the negative thing I hear, read and see everywhere about the mesh but this simple and no mesh was used. So how can I get this type of surgery done? Please help Dr. Gajendra

  • Not had mine yet but I hear you also need to be ready with serious stool softeners…you don’t want to have to bear down at all in the bathroom or you will be in pain…also avoid anything that would make you cough!!! As far as prior to surgery I think any working out or exercise that does not “strain” the stomach which could cause the opening to enlarge is fine. You can find good stomach muscle strengthening exercises right here on Youtube.

  • I had this procedure done today. I didn’t want to freak myself out by watching a video beforehand. It’s not that scary. I pictured a lot of blood loss but there really wasn’t that much. Thank you for the video!

Because of heavy physiotherapy and caring of him I started to have bloating with gas and pain at the same time my belly button don’t show out as it used to earlier.

  • I went same operation with mesh repair 4 years back but now I getting pain and some blood in the urine and stools are not clear now and lock down is going now and not finding the way. Please advise Dr. Garu

  • Hi sir good afternoon…I have doubt….I had surgery for umbilical hernia with mesh before 2 weeks… unfortunately I lifted little weight becz of my daughter…after that I scared whether hernia will come again like that, s r no sir, once it operated again it will come r not sir? Me 27 yr old now…kindly reply me sir…

  • hey has anyone had experience with one and weight training. just had a small Umbilical Hernia show up after
    training and if i get it fixed whats the likely hood of me going back to full training after and how long?

  • I’m happy that I don’t see any mesh used in this surgery. The mesh horror stories are very bad from hindered movement to intense pain ongoing. But I realize that the manufacturers of the mesh product say only 1% to 2% percent of patients have difficulty. That’s still 1000 to 2000 lives ruined out of a 100,000 sample size. Anyway the mesh that I’ve seen images of is rather stiff and has sharp edges to it and it seems to harden up over time and sometimes pierce internal organs. This is why there are so many lawsuits. But I am thankful to see that there is an alternative to mesh. Thank you for that. It gives hope.

  • I have an umbilical hernia poking out of my belly button right now, and some intestine or something looks very swollen right next to it. My insurance doesnt cover any surgery places around me. Ive been in pain for abt 2 weeks! All from some chia seeds that bloated and blew up my stomach

  • Does anyone know if surgery involves cutting belly button directly? I have a belly button phobia and would rather they cut next to b. button than in it. Anyone else feel this way?

  • Hopped around and watched several videos. This is by far the best overall “everything in one” and is very well explained. Thank you!

  • I came here because my daughter has this. She’s still 2 years old but I’m sure she’ll get this operation when the doctor says she’s ready.

  • Hello sir i want to know that after the surgery is there any chances of mesh effects or problems cause it will place inside the belly for the whole life is it creates problem?

  • My dad had this surgery earlier this morning, it’s weird to think that the next time i see his belly button, it wont be that puffy sack anymore.

  • I need this done soon. Thanks for clearing things up. It’s strange but I don’t like it when a scalpel cuts skin. I’ve seen the inside of the human body before with my own eyes, but that cutting motion gets me every time.

  • I remember my Mum having one of those big belly buttons that was herniated due to a Sister being an over sized baby my Mum gave birth to. My question is, if the hernia isn’t repaired for many years and a women gives birth to another two baby’s after the original herniated belly button, is it possible that the hernia can develop root growths around the internal organs and cause much more serious complications? I hope the doctor can answer this question, if not, then I hope someone with medical knowledge can help answer my question. My Mum ended up having massive complications as well as a massive heart attack after the surgery. Mum recovered eventually. Thank you ��

  • My belly button constantly hurts at the moment. I just had keyhole surgery there to remove dermoid cyst and was told not to exercise after 6 weeks. I started exercising after 6 weeks and my belly button is now constantly hurting even after 6 weeks. Do I now have a hernia?

  • I’ma have to get surgery of this… Omg I don’t wanna go now lol…… That probably the pain I have.. Gonna go check with doctor to see what they tell me

  • I had this same surgery when I was a baby except mine was about 6 times bigger than this hurnia and my doctors didn’t do the best job leaving me with a pretty big unhealthy scar

  • my son who only 3 months old had a big heriner and seeing a doctor tomorrow can anyone give me advise on this please and what could happen in the future will it go back or not? thanks

  • I’m surprised how little it bleeds.I need umbilical hernia surgery,however the Doctor want’s me to loose some weight first.He said he can do the surgery now,but because I’m overweight,he said the hernia could return.Has anyone out there with a weight problem have this surgery done,and if so what was the outcome. Thanks.

  • i had this done with just sutures. what will happen to my small hernia repair without mesh if i were to become pregnant in the future?

  • I had this 2 years ago but the difference was I had three, two in my abdomen and one umbilical. If any of you are getting this done or are thinking about it well here’s how it goes. It hurt really bad the first and second day and started walking around more on the third I was only off school for a week I was around 11 when I had this procedure done

  • I’ve watch a video of the mesh & the Laparoscopic surgery both, I think I would prefer the mesh, I had it done with the mesh about 25 yrs ago but it looks like the type of mesh has been improved slot since then like everything in our world.

  • When I am too small I had the same and the doctor said that it can be normal but she will get laser treatment but my mom is very afraid of this that she will get so much pain one aunty come and say that the treatment is not so important it can be normal easy way a poison name neela thotha she said it can be normal by neela thotha so my mom sad it can be painful the aunty said no it is not painful my mom agree with that and she say it can do something wrong the aunty reply no

  • I’m about to have my umbilical hernia surgery via laparoscopy this Friday and this video answered all my questions. It’s increnable, thank you!

  • I have one. My symptoms include infection in my bellybutton. (It would get sore and get swollen and then eventually its like it pops. Then I have a bloody/puss filled bellybutton which I need to clean with surgical spirits 3 times a day. Very embarrassing because I need to always wear an under shirt.) I always have like a numb pain in my tummy. I am 32 now and I had it checked out when I was 19 and they didnt want to do anything. I had it checked out again when I was 30 and still didnt want to do anything about it. I could do sit ups in the past but now I cannot do it anymore. What the hell do I do? New doctor?

  • Hi sir
