Anyone else having Bypass, Hiatal Hernia, Umbilical Hernia Combo?



Recommended Posts

I’m having all three tomorrow and have spent so much time reading, lurking and commenting on this site re: the bypass that I have neglected my info gathering on the hernias. I’ve read several posts regarding hiatal hernia and a couple of folks out there with umbilical hernias but none with my special combination. I know you’re out there!

What is the most challenging part of the recovery with all three? Personal experiences and anecdotes from friends wanted!

I had a small hiatal hernia repaired along with my bypass. I never knew the hernia was there before my EGD two months pre op.

I don’t believe my recover was any different than anyone else’s but things went smoothly all the way around for me.

@ Naughty Glitter Goddess, you sure got the trifecta there. I only have 2 of the3 but I Suspect the umbilical will be the straw that breaks that🐪🐫camels back. Many years ago, I had an open incision for gall bladder/appendix, I had a right paramedian, scar 3 above going to 3 inches below just to the right of my navel.I healed but it wasn't as fast and easy,as the lap incisions these days. Come cry on my,virtual shoulder if you like, Frustr8 understands and will listen.

Thank you, I'm a litter curious about how the umbilical hernia is going to go. Hopefully I won't have a huge incision but we'll see. I think my stomach muscles are going to be pretty angry for a while. I'll update in a few days!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
