Navel,leg pain & bloating

A friend of mine gets frequent pain near the navel and down the left leg, with pain also near ankle. He had a hernia operation in 2000. An acupressure expert presses navel region which gives temporary relief. What could this be?- b12 deficiency, umblical hernia, or something else

Chances of recurrence of hernia is more likely …. But cannot be confirmed unless examined… neuropathuc pain also present the same with difference in type of pain and also intensity , since you have significant past history recurrence of hernia is more likely.. kindly consult general surgeon..
