    Umbilical hernia

    Developed above after Da Vinci prostatectomy three years ago. Have not had a surgical repair yet and am interested any others experience in this condition and how it was resolved. Please advise, thank you, James

      If you are asking about hernia surgery, it's a snap. I was likely born w/an umbilical hernia. I became symptomatic last June. Had surgery in July. The only complication was that they found cancer. If not for the cancer diagnosis, I would have been in the hospital just overnight. If you are asking about the specific procedure you had, can't help.

      I'm on that boat with you James. I have two hernias due to the huge incision for my radical hysterectomy. Hoping to get it fixed after I'm done with treatment.
