Q:

Hi All.. I did sonography today due to some reason..Everything is normal but the report is showing evidence of small reducible umbilical hernia containing bowel, the defect measures 0.6 cm. Is this normal? My family doctor said it's normal. Also my belly button is outside because of it..Can anyone help me with the remedy or any suggestions?

hello riya...
Basically, the sticking out of the umbilicus (belly button) is known as an umbilical hernia. In the majority of instances, it will not cause any pain. You will notice a bulge, protrusion in the shape of the thumb, which will be tender to touch. You may feel it more if and when you strain your abdominal muscles, like when you lift something heavy, cough or sneeze..
if a hernia is easily reducible, the abdominal contents can easily be returned to their original compartment. Reduction not only allows symptomatic relief for patients but also reduces the risk of future incarceration.. Usually repair is indicated when an umbilical hernia develops larger than 2 cm...
Choose the exercise that won’t put pressure on your abdomen or pelvic region. Breathing exercise will help you to find your transverse muscle. Choose the exercises that strengthen these muscle. Yoga, meditation, breathing exercise are found to be effective for an reducible umbilical hernia.. The way you carry your body every day has a role in regulating the pressure inside your abdomen. Always choose a posture that keeps your body in a straight line. Using high heel shoes when you are diagnosed with an umbilical hernia should be avoided as it put extra pressure on your abdomen.. For small hernia which are not noticeable, no treatment is needed...
