help 2nd hernia?
 
I need some advise on these hernias. My hubby had a hernia last year following a colon resection and gallbladder surgery. It was emergency surgery. According to the surgeon he found the hernia in there while doing the surgery last year. So with that all happening in 2011. Then this year, a hernia developed at the belly button (another weakened area) with all the open surgeries he had to have.
questions: 1. for people that had hernias, will he get more??
2. how do you prevent them?

all these surgeries have aged him so. and it all started with a precancer spot on his colon.

I just want some input from some of you that have hernias.

thanks
