Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had a C-section three years ago. My stomach started bulging, so I visited a doctor and had a sonography. So came to know that I have mild umbilical hernia 0.7. If I do proper exercise and follow the Ayurvedic medicine suggested by you, then is this mild hernia curable? Please help me with this. Also, can I climb stairs with a mild hernia?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Since you had C-section, you are likely to develop incisional hernia which is a common issue faced post C-sections if proper care is not taken during wound healing. It is not curable with only medicines but it can be preventable from reaching further stages. If you find and center close by which practices post partum care in Ayurveda then get the following done.

Treatment plan

Apply Dhanvantara taila (Balamoola, Barley, Kola) followed by veshta bandhana (abdominal binder).

Preventive measures

Avoid lifting weights and too much physical exertion.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
