I have 2 children, youngest 3. About 2 yrs ago I had a belly button hernia repair. Today I went to a surgeon and found that I have another hernia next to belly button. I also asked him about my stomach. When I lean backward doing yoga exercises I noticed that I have what looks like a mountain with a valley on each side. If I stand and lean back it does it as well. Sometimes painful. The doc said that it is a lining that has been thinned out due to uterus pressing on it while pregnant. That I should meet with a personal trainer to learn exercises to strengthen it. I am still concerned because I have NEVER heard about anyone having this or seen anyone with it.

I am getting the hernia repaired on Mon. I am wondering if I should get a second opinoin about the other issue though. Any feedback is appreciated!
