I had an abdominal hernia fixed about 3 weeks ago by surgery (the surgeon sewed the muscle). I am suffering of a lot of burping. Is this going to go away? What is it causing it?

Whenever my hernia goes back in, I have severe discomfort that makes me want to pass gas or burp constantly. It's so bad that I actually walk and jump around to make the hernia fall back out so it doesn't give me the discomfort. This is one of the reasons I'm super scared of my impending surgery....what if a repaired hernia will give me more pain and discomfort than right now.

I assume it happens because the repaired hernia (organs put back in their place) are sitting on or putting pressure on other organs.

Do you feel any other discomfort related to this kind of discomfort?
