has anyone here had multiple hernias?
I’m 31 and was just diagnosed with my 3rd hernia in 12 months. I really don’t know what to make of this. Each time I get one repaired, a new one sprouts up a month or two later. Doing these repairs feels pointless… It’s as if the internal pressure that causes these hernias just shifts to the next weakest point in my abdominal wall and causes a new one.
1st hernia: Inguinal, left side, open mesh repair at UCLA
2nd hernia: Inguinal, right side, open mesh repair at UCLA
3rd hernia: Umbilical
Has anyone been down this road before? Any advice? At this rate my entire torso will be wrapped up in mesh by the time I’m 40 lol
