Incisional hernia

Hi there, After my 1st pregnancy I got an incisional hernia. I had it repaired 3 months after the birth. I had a prosthesis put in and its been a year and I still have a lot of pain if i stand too long. I want another child but am concerned that it will be very painful. Also i have to get cut from the belly button down as I cannot be cut on the same scar again. Is there anyone who has had a similar exeperince and then another pregnancy. I am also concerned that i could not stretch and tear whilst growing form a pregnancy.
??? Help
