  • I don't have an umbilical hernia but my husband does and he has most of his life. He is now 54 and up until recently it was nothing to worry about. There may come a time soon that he has to have surgery on ot only because it has enlarged and may disrupy the flow of blood. We always used to kid about having an inny or an outie belly button. Neither one of us thought anything about it.
