Will a hernia heal on its own ?
I was born with a hernia. I'm it was a few inches above my belly button and was visibley pushing on the skin (it was a lighter coloured patch die to a small amount of pressure) will I was about 11 (roughtly).I'm now 19 and have no problems, I've done manual labour ect. But if my girlfriend rests her arm on my stomach it makes me feel a little bit unwell and I'm not sure if the hole ever actually healed fully or if it's a physiological thing because it's the same place where the hernia was. I feel very sick at the thought of being cut open though so would prefer not to have surgery but it's a bit of a worry when it happens
