INCISIONAL HERNIA

An incisional hernia is caused by weakening in the scar tissue that develops after you have had an operation on your abdomen. If you gain a lot of weight after an operation, you are at higher risk of developing an incisional hernia. Forceful activities, such as coughing, sneezing or lifting heavy weights, may also lead to this type of hernia.
