Umbilical hernia
My wife having umbilical hernia for last 5yrs. She is obese and doctor advised surgery after reducing some weight. But she is maintaining this weight post delivery 8 yrs ago. The weight gained during pregnancy around 20 kgs never reduced. She has done all type of diet including paleo. Now she is having pain occasionally and sometimes more and also become diabetic six months ago. What need to be done to reduce weight and what are her options for hernia. What will be the complication if she goes for surgery and doesn't go for surgery. Thanks
