I'm going to be looking into the hernia fix soon. I keep putting it off, and it keeps getting worse. I've had it 10 years or better. It's above and to the right of my belly button. It started a little piece of intestine would pop out and I could take 1 finger and push it back in. Now if I sneeze it pops and it's almost the size of my fist and hurts like heck. I have to take my whole palm and gently push it back in. I tried a big rubber band, like a coreset, to hold it in when I'm doing heavy stuff. It works well, but I just have to get it fixed. Good luck with yours.
My doctor warned me that a hernia will always keep getting bigger.
