I had hernia repair almost 4 years ago for belly button hernia, but it feels like I have one again. Is it possible to get hernia in the same spot after having it repaired?

Yes, you can.  It may be a new one or it may be that the mesh moved and it no longer may cover the intended area any longer.  It is more common if you are overweight or gained or lost weight.

That's what i was afraid of. I just had a baby not too long ago and I'm overweight.

I didn't mention being pregnant, but yeah that could definately do it.  Mesh is often connected to the tissue just beneath the skin or connective tissue, so in the case of the stretching of the abdominal muscles from pregnancy, it is more likely.  Sorry.  I have a hernia and it sucks when it is bothering me.  It really hurts sometimes.  You can potentially make it less painful or bothersome by losing some weight or strengthening the abdominal muscles, but after awhile, it will likely need to be fixed.

That is a maybe answer.  It really depends on what type, how bad and big it is, and the location.  Some cannot be made better by strengthening the muscles and could actually make it worse, depending on the conditions I noted previously.  Some are never considered really bad and surgery is not an option, unless it causes major problems.  I have lived with a hernia for years and it flares sometimes, but it's not bad enough for surgery, so I just deal with it.

Last hernia was from my first pregnancy so i knew that could be a cause.

Oh yeah, even more likely.  Poor thing.  Maybe if you're done having babies, you can get it fixed forever this time?
