Passing Gas and Hernia’s
I just have a question. If you have any sort of hernia, if you strain even just a little to let out some gas, it is detrimental to your hernia? You are only squeezing it out for a few seconds max.
I have a problem where my gas gets built up and i try to hold it in because I don’t want to squeeze and apply unnecessary pressure on any possible hernia but sometimes you must squeeze it out. Is it dangerous? It’s very uncomfortable to hold your gases in for long periods of time. Some farts come out easily and some take some pushing.
This is a gross and embarrassing question but someone with hernia experience can chime in,.
