Hernias Under-reported?

I have a new colostomy and now a significant hernia. My wound nurse told me colostomates have a 1 in 3 to 1 in 2 chance of acquiring a hernia. I didn't know I was facing this going into surgery.

Did your surgeon inform you of the hernia risk with a colostomy? Can anyone advise me about how to exercise without the risk of making this worse? This seems like something of a damned if you and damned if you don't issue.

Thanks folks.
