I did 14 hours to\from Korea with two direct hernias, only issue was swollen ankles. Being constipated probably puts more pressure on the hernias, I don’t think the pressure variance is great enough when they pressurise the cabin. I guess if it was large you could manipulate it back into your abdomen while reclined to reduce chances of strangulation?
