  1. Being overweight increases the strain and pressure on your abdominal muscles and makes them weaker and more prone to developing a hernia.

    That's how I entered the world of bariatric surgery.  I was referred by my PCP to a surgeon because of an umbilical hernia that was causing problems.  He was the one to suggest a RNY because if I didn't lose weight and keep it off, the hernia repair was likely to fail.
