has anyone had an umbilical hernia repaired? or any other kind of laproscopic surgery?

ok, i know that most of that is probably not spelled right, but due to the lack of spell check when you're posting a question you'll just have to deal with it lol!
i got a hernia when i was pregnant with the second child. it closed up a little bit after he was born, but when i was pregnant with the third child it opened up much bigger, and now she is 1yo and it is still open. it hurts alot and i know ihave to get it repaired. i want to know has anyone had one repaired before? i guess i'll go with the laproscopic procedure because i'm assuming it will leave less of a scar. i'm not loving the idea of being under general anesthesia though lol. how long after it was repaired were you allowed to do crunches or any other kind of abdominal exercise? what kind of scar does the laproscopic surgery leave? thanks so much mommas

  • I had my appendix removed laparoscopically in November of 2008. It was pretty quick and the recovery time was short. Also, I have practically no scar at all now!
