Yes you can carry one out just cause you have had surgery before does not mean youll have it every time

Hello and hope you are doing well.

No it is not related. Hernia is the protrusion of abdominal contents through an abnormal opening. It is usually the bowel. It will not cause any problems to have the surgery now for kidney stones.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
