I have not personally had an incisional hernia. An incisional hernia can occur following any abdominal surgery. There are risk factors for developing incisional hernias. Not all of them need to be repaired. Some can become emergencies if the tissue that is protruding becomes strangulated and does not receive sufficient blood flow.
I hope you don't have any problems with yours.
