Epigastric hernia number 3
Abdominal wall hernias typically recur at the lower edge of the repair. That is where gravity has the greatest pull.
The causes for recurrence vary per person. I would highly recommend that you do not undergo any further operations until all risk factors for failure are addressed. Weight is one of them. Nicotine use is another. Constipation is a third.
