2 Bumps

She still has her little hernia.

She is about to be 3 and it is still there. Just a tiny hole by her belly button. The doctor was sure it would close up before she turned 3 but it hasn't. It still has 2 more years to close before we even consider surgical correction but how likely is it to close on it's own after age 3? Anyone dealt with this? I am not calling the doctor over this but I will try to remember to bring it up next time w are there. Just wondered if anyone else had this problem.

  • My husband had a hernia that was operated on when he was under a year old. Sorry, that's all I know about it.
