  • My Granmddaughter umbilical hernia repair was done when she was 9 days old. The tiny little scar is barely visable. It was healed completely in about a month.

  • My son had an indirect inguinal hernia w/hydrocele that was repaired when he was about 4 years old. It didn't take long for him to heal and he was actually feeling well enough later on the same day of his surgery to want to ride his big wheel (we didn't let him, but he wanted to).

  • It's interesting you asked this question, we're going to the doctor for my daughter (4) who has an umbilical hernia to see if we need to do surgery.
