Our expert says:
1). You can’t really make your diaphragm stronger by doing some sort of exercise. You can try to concentrate on breathing deeply, but that’s about it.
2). I can’t say for sure, but it should improve with time.
3). I don’t understand this question. Please reformulate it as a new question.
4). This may be due to the hernia, but lots of people without hernias have the same problem. Stress increases bowel movement and therefore also flatulence.
Good luck and let me know if you have more questions (please post them as new questions otherwise I will miss them).
