What are the symptoms of a hernia following a C-section?

Though hernias after a C-section aren’t common, when they do happen it is because an organ or tissue bulges through the muscles that weakened when they were split vertically during the surgery, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians.

The most common symptom of a hernia after a C-section is pain, and sometimes you’ll notice a small bulge in your abdomen.

However, other women have no symptoms, and the hernia is found during a medical exam or procedure.

For more information about symptoms of a hernia after a C-section, talk with your doctor.
