    I jad Lap Nissen surgery in 2008. Since then Ive had an outie belly button. Thought it was scar tissue. In November I got a job at Amazon. I work , bending and lifting. I have been diagnosed with an Umbilical Hernia. Does this cause discomfort? I feel I need to burp. Feel bloated. I eat OK and go to the bathroom fairly regular. Does the pain and discomfort in my gut be caused by the hernia?

    Thank you. I have an appointment with a Surgeon this week. I just didn’t realise it could hurt.

    Some of the symptoms you’re describing such as bloating in the need to burp are fairly common after a Nissen fundoplication. Pain in the area of the hernia is usually caused from the hernia. Fixing an umbilical hernia is a fairly simple thing to do and would recommend you see your friendly local surgeon to have it take care of
