#Obesity is indeed a big risk factor for #Hernia. Abdominal pressure of an obese person is typically higher. This abnormal pressure can either induce #Hernia or can make #Hernia surgeries more complex.
It should also be borne in mind that after the #Hernia surgery, the chances of the #Hernia recurring is very high in obese individuals. Because the excess fat does not allow the Hernia mesh to settle and get fixed. Slippage of mesh is quite common. So it is imperative that you control your weight.
