Did you develop a post op hernia?

Have you ever developed a hernia following abdominal surgery?

I know many of you have had multiple surgeries so you have the option of multiple responses.

I'm going with the other, because mine was never diagnosed. After my last surgery, I had occasional times under abdominal stress (exercise), that I had a "popping" feeling happen where the stoma had been. There was a large, very hard bump visible, and it was really painful. It reduced with a little pressure, but thought I might have needed a trip to the hospital if it lasted longer. Haven't had it back for several years though, so I think I have tightened up my abs a little.

Got me a nice golf ball sized hernia just above my belly button. Just what I needed!

I have two ventral hernias and it really sucks. The one near my belly button is the size of a golf ball and grosses me out. I have one that's higher and not as big. I won't be able to get them fixed until I have another resection and I'm not having another resection unless I'm dying.
