Mesh unlikely to move at this point. Typically after 8 weeks it’s relatively scarred in. Contraction of the mesh can happen over time to re-expose hernia(s).

Safe a time as any to get back in shape from a hernia standpoint. If it’s going to recur waiting longer won’t change anything.

If you were to have a bad outcome from a mesh based groin hernia repair, it should have happen by now.

By all accounts this is a successful repair.

The umbilical hernia may enlarge over time but if its asymptomatic you can see what happens with exercise. If it starts becoming painful, etc then you should see a surgeon about repair.
