I have had a hernia 2 years. I have a lot of gas when I wake up or after eating. The gas pushes the hernia out.

Is the gas caused by the hernia? And is it normal?

I forgot to mention that I also have BPH (Benign Prostatatic Hyperplasia). I'm taking these medications for the BPH: Avodart - Dutasteride & Sandoz - Tamsulosin. Is the gas caused by the hernia or the medication taken for the BPH or anxiety?

Gas means you are not digesting your food properly. We suggest contacting a naturopathic organisation to find a therapist who can help you with this. You may have an intolerance to a food such as milk or gluten.

I agree with admin, but would also say that gas may be a contributing factor in the cause of the hernia, rather than the hernia causing the gas. Decreasing gas is/was part of my solution to addressing the hernia. I do this by eating little to no dairy or wheat, among other things.

i dont think gas is formed because of the hernia. i think its mainly the food that you eat. I noticed this a lot during my treatment. the day i had heavy/ junk food there would be a lot of gas formation. the hernia would also protrude more and it would hurt. but if i would eat on time, eat light and healthy home made food and sleep on time, it would help a lot. it kept the hernia soft. So it would not hurt much.
