Hey Emma , I got the same response for the same reasons . They thought with my MELD at that time I would be getting a transplant before the Hernia gave any serious medical problems . My hernia was filled with fluid and you could push my belly button back in and it would slowly pop back out as the fluid returned back into it . It's when the hernia gets rock hard and very inflamed that it needs serious attention A.S.A.P .
Like the G.I explained to you , They really dont like to open you up and introduce possible infections and particularly when you may be close to transplantation . Glad to see you are ahead of the game with all the possibilities , Take care .
