Can too much beer cause damage or permanent complications after one night of drinking 2 1/2 weeks post umbilical hernia op?
I ended up going to a friends birthday party because after 2 1/2 weeks of my repair (no mesh, open repair, small umbilical hernia) I felt very mobile and flexible. I drank about 8 beers that night and caused a lot of bloating. Could this have stretched my abdomen to the point of tearing, or damaging the sutures/surgical area? I felt a slight sharp pain that night in the area but it was only subtle. Thank you
