I have 3 hernias.........a hiatal hernia, an embilical hernia and a third hernia that grew over the mesh they inserted when they removed the last hernia. The hiatal hernia is very painful........can I have all 3 removed at once?? I have chronic pain and my stomach is very extended.
I'm really not sure whether all three hernias could be repaired at once. I think that is something that would have to be determined by a surgeon on an individual basis.
Hiatal hernias are only surgically repaired in a small number of cases. Usually they're just treated with medication. Your doctor will have to determine if yours actually requires surgery.
