Q15. Will I have to wear a truss? : A guide to Hernias

A15. This is unlikely. A truss is a special support bandage or garment which is worn next to the hernia to help keep it in place as well as providing extra support for the abdomen.

However, these have been largely superseded by hernia repair surgery which has proved to be very successful.
