I have a large pararstomal hernia with my intestine involved. I have been told that it could cause need for emergency surgery. I wear an ostomy belt made specifically for me to support the hernia. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? My first thought was I wish I had known about how valuable it is to support the abdominal wall. If I had known this three years ago, I wouldn't be in the fix I am in now. I hope someone gets this information before facing emergent ER surgery. I understand a screen is often used on hernia repair. My body does not accept foreign material. I get.granulomas instead of healing. So, any thoughts or ideas?
