Hi and welcome.
It is always better to get it fixed surgically however if surgery under anesthesia is not possible because of other diseases you can use abdominal support belt. Trusses, corsets, or binders can hold hernias in place by placing pressure on the skin and abdominal wall.They are often used in older or debilitated patients who have an increased risk to undergo surgery and when the hernia defect is very large.
Let me know if you have further questions.
