well this is only from what i've read, but hernias are not uncommon in those that have had open surgery (which i did not have, mine was laproscopic) and mostyl caused from heavy lifting, this is because the muscle around the stoma or the surgery site are weak, so heavy lifting can cause the muscle to strain and therefore develop a hernia. I hope someone else can come along with better answers
