Acid Reducers can lead to constipation and cause more pressure on the abdominal wall and possibly breaching it. Statins can cause constipation too.

I have the same thing. Surgery won't help. PM me if you wish. I feel for you; I know the agony you are going through.

You may need to seek advice from another doctor. Surgery may be what you need. I had an umbilical hernia and had surgery on it when I was 4. Look up "hernia" in wikipedia to get some more info. I hope all turns out well. :)

I have an Upper Umbilical Hernia at the time of this post. I'm going for consultation on October 15th 2014. Wish Me Luck.
