Hello. I am 16 months postpartum – I have had two csections. Still breastfeeding. After my surgery, I developed a bulge above my scar.
If I cough it really pushes out. I have avoided pursing the issue more as I am nursing. What are peoples opinions? Is this a hernia? Do I need to worry about strangulation? Can I put surgery off for a while?
MRI Report findings below done July 2021

What are people opinions on surgery while nursing? Also, if this is not a hernia? How would it be repaired? Thanks in advance. And should I avoid any certain exercise?
I am trying to schedule an appointment with Dr Yurnis or I would love to see @drtowfigh, but she is in another state.
