It's not tender, and has remained the same size, about the size of a nickel. I'm currently on a very effective diet and weight-loss program, and am on my way to losing the extra 40 pounds I've been carrying. Is this dangerous to put off, I won't have insurance for another 6 months.
Hi Byjut, it should not be. Is it big? Have docs suggested surgery? Alot of people walk around with umbilical hernia and don't even know it. If it starts to cause you pain, then you may not have a choice. Losing weight will definitely help. I would not do any very strenuous exercising, especially abd. crunches or the like. But, like I said, if it starts to become painful, contact your doc, ASAP. Good luck. L
